Potential park site identified

Michael Schneider

Another possible site for the proposed El Dorado County park in the Tahoe Basin is being considered, although the person leading the search said it is not likely to be chosen.

The Edelstein property, located along Pioneer Trail by the Golden Bear Fire Station could get consideration from a steering committee contracted to find a good place for the park.

South Lake Tahoe Attorney Dennis Crabb, hired by El Dorado County to act as a lead consultant in the park search, said he thinks the Edelstein property is a long shot.

Currently, the Sacramento firm working in tandem with Crabb, Parsons Harland Bartholomew & Associates, Inc., is running the property though the screening process.

Only five of the 444 possible sites passed that screening process and became candidates for the park.

The current candidates are a 16-acre area off Sierra Boulevard near the California Department of Transportation’s right of way, a 14-acre site above Zephyr Cove off Warrior Way, the Meyers dump site, of unknown size, 30 acres of United States Forest Service land by the Tahoe Paradise Resort Improvement District, and two acres at Lake Tahoe Community College.

Should the Edelstein property pass the screening, the steering committee will visit the site during an Aug. 19 field trip when the other five finalists are visited.

If the steering committee visits and likes the site, it will be added to the list for consideration, according to Crabb.

The final choice will be made and presented to the public at a Sept. 2 meeting at Lake Tahoe Community College.
