Tahoe Regional Young Professionals’ speaker series kicks off
Tahoe Regional Young Professionals’ development and education speaker series kicks off Thursday from 6-9 p.m. at the Lake Tahoe Airport’s Flight Deck Restaurant and Bar.
Alfred Knotts, principal planner/project manager for the Tahoe Transportation District, will present plans associated with the U.S. 50 South Shore Community Revitalization Project, a proposed plan to relocate Highway 50 at Stateline, Nev., with five lanes along Lake Parkway Boulevard behind Harrah’s, MontBleu and The Village Shopping Center (formerly Crescent V), while converting the artery through the casino core into three lanes with both thoroughfares reconnecting at Pioneer Trail in California.
Highlights include a landscaped median and turn pockets at major driveways and intersections along with expanded sidewalks for outdoor restaurants and pedestrian areas along with a dedicated bike lane, a concept embraced by the South Tahoe Association of Resorts in the recently announced South Shore Vision Plan.
Flight Deck owners Tom and Diane Miller will provide free appetizers that includes chips and salsa and calamari along with dinner and drink specials.
