More development expected at Ski Run and Park Avenue

Further development could occur in the Ski Run and Park Avenue areas, since several changes were approved Tuesday by the South Lake Tahoe City Council.

“There was no controversy whatsoever,” said Councilman Bill Crawford

The changes, although approved by the City Planning Commission and the City Council still need to be approved by the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency.

But the changes under way are important to downtown redevelopment.

“Community plan amendments are for the most part good things, because they were drawn up years ago and sometimes need adjustments,” said Councilwoman Judy Brown.

The City Council approved real estate offices in the redevelopment area to sell time-shares in the proposed Marriott weekly time-share hotel and Heavenly Ski Resort’s quarter-share Grand Summit Resort Hotel.

Also approved in the the Park Avenue Redevelopment Area were retail stores and an emergency medical facility in the area of the proposed outdoor ice rink next to the Grand Summit.

Gersick Enterprises Inc., the owner of the shopping center at Ski Run Boulevard, is considering a remodel on the property. The proposed zoning change would allow for a public plaza at the two corners of Ski Run Boulevard and U.S. Highway 50. No plans have been presented.

The City Council also approved merging two parcels of land on the corner of Ski Run Boulevard and Paradise Avenue, which would put both of them within the Stateline/Ski Run Community plan and allow for the owners to build a professional building on the property, which was previously zoned as residential.

The TRPA will review these changes Dec. 20 at the Horizon Casino Resort in Stateline.
