Meyers Plan workshop set for May 6

Tribune staff report

Residents wanting input on the Meyers Vision Plan will have an opportunity at an upcoming workshop on Wednesday, May 6 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The vision plan, which began in 2011, began as a community vision that turned into a collaboration between El Dorado County, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and residents to update the original community plan, which dates back to 1993.

The meeting, to be kicked off by El Dorado County Board of Supervisors Chair Brian Veerkamp, will include breakout sessions and an overview of the plan's third draft.

The Meyers Area Plan is a comprehensive long-term plan that includes development, zoning and community goals.

The final draft takes into account comments made by Meyers residents and business owners on previous drafts, including limiting building heights to 35 feet and reducing hotel density from 40 rooms to 15 rooms per acre.

The draft plan identifies 149 acres of recreation lands in one zoning area; encourages redevelopment of existing developed parcels over vacant parcels; and increases commercial floor for small projects to 18,650 square feet.
