Marriott wants more time

Susan Wood

Marriott Ownership Resorts and partners are expected to ask the South Lake Tahoe Redevelopment Agency for a three-month extension Friday in coming forth with a solid plan for building a convention center complex near Stateline.

The meeting is scheduled at 2 p.m. in council chambers at 1900 Lake Tahoe Blvd.

The city’s nine-month exclusive negotiating agreement expires Saturday, forcing the city to ask for an update on the hotelier’s feasibility plan.

The area in question covers a 16-acre wedge between Highway 50, and Cedar, Friday, and Poplar avenues.

Marriott has expressed interest in a plan to build a time-share hotel-anchored complex costing an estimated $190 million.
