Recovery center relocation to be OK’d

Moving the Sierra Recovery Center from its location near the lake on Tallac Avenue to a motel at the “Y” would not have a significant impact on the environment.

That’s the message the staff of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency will deliver to its Advisory Planning Commission when it meets at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at Kings Beach.

The City Council in June approved a zoning change to accommodate the planned relocation of the drug and alcohol recovery center to the Sandor Chateau on Emerald Bay Road.

The purchasing and relocation to the motel would allow the center to eliminate the cost of rent, provide room for offices and house up to 14 live-in residents, according to Betsy Fedor, executive director of the center.

The TRPA Advisory Planning Commission only reviews proposals from the TRPA staff. The agency’s Governing Board is expected to vote on matter when it meets at the end of the month.

Advisory Planning Commission meetings are open to the public. The meeting on Wednesday will be in the North Tahoe Community Conference Center starting at 9:30 a.m.
