TRPA Regular Board Meeting

Colin Hupp, Tahoe Daily Tribune

Glenbrook piers are back on the agenda of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency Governing Board meeting today in Stateline.

Glenbrook Homeowner’s Association wants the TRPA to limit new piers in Glenbrook Bay and have voiced that opinion during public hearings on the issue. The TRPA agrees and has adopted resolutions to that effect, but the homeowners want the limits to include the southern end of the bay. The TRPA boundaries would prohibit new piers from Slaughterhouse Creek to Glenbrook Creek, an area that is not quite as large as the homeowners would like. This allows the possibility of a new multiple-use pier planned for the southern end of the bay.

“New piers always make for lively community discussion,” said Pam Drum, public information officer for the TRPA.

Also on the agenda at the TRPA meeting:

n Fees for excess land coverage, which should remain at current levels of $6.50 per square foot in California and $12 per square foot in Nevada.

n Building allocations for 2002, which should remain at 300 per year after TRPA staff recommends the board keep allocation numbers at current levels. The board is expected to outline allocation plans for 2003 through 2006 at a presentation of the 2001 Threshold Evaluation Report.

n Setting the scope of an Environmental Impact Statement that South Tahoe Public Utility District must file in conjunction with plans to replace the export pipe over Luther Pass.

WHAT: Governing Board of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency

WHERE: Horizon Casino Resort, U. S. Highway 50, Stateline, Nev.

WHEN: 8:45 a.m. today
