Neighborhood compatibility just one topic on TRPA agenda
August 25, 2008
The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s Governing Board will discuss items on a jam-packed agenda during a two-day meeting this week in Stateline.
Included on the agenda is possible approval of the Beach Club on Lake Tahoe project. The proposal calls for redeveloping the site of the Tahoe Shores Mobile Home Park with 143 condominiums, a beach club and pool, and a pier expansion. The 20-acre waterfront site is just east of Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.
The meeting also includes an update on implementation of recommendations made by the California-Nevada Tahoe Basin Fire Commission.
The board also is slated to have a public hearing and vote on the Lake Tahoe Regional Transportation Plan.
The plan, which has been part of the Pathway process, is called Mobility 2030 and seeks to address different transportation issues the basin may encounter in upcoming years.
The plan’s goal is to enhance pedestrian and transit-oriented development, pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly transit, transportation demand management and mass transit, among other issues. A full version of the plan can be viewed and downloaded at http://www.trpa.org/mobility2030.htm.

In other action, the Governing Board might vote to reconsider its denial of the teardown/rebuild of a Tahoma home, at the request of board member Shelly Aldean.
The original vote involved a proposal to tear down an 878-square-foot home and build a 3,886-square-foot home in its place. At its July meeting, the Governing Board did not approve the rebuild, citing concerns about neighborhood compatibility.
Aldean asked for a reconsideration because of vagueness in the TRPA code regarding neighborhood compatibility. The TRPA also received letters from concerned organizations such as the Tahoe Sierra Board of Realtors, Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe and the McKinney Bay Improvement Association.
And if that’s not enough, a fiscal-year performance review for Executive Director John Singlaub also is on the agenda for Wednesday’s meeting.
Singlaub is asking the board for feedback on his performance during the 2007-08 fiscal year and also what the board’s expectations are for his performance during the upcoming fiscal year.
The board also is asked to approve a set of performance goals for the upcoming year.
A cost-of-living salary adjustment for Singlaub also is on the agenda. Currently, Singlaub makes $132,958 per year.
The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday and continues Thursday beginning at 9 a.m.
The Governing Board will meet at TRPA’s South Shore office at 128 Market St. in Stateline.
