TRPA takes on shorezone issue Wednesday

Adam Jensen

The fate of Lake Tahoe’s shoreline may be decided at a Tahoe Regional Planning Agency Governing Board meeting Wednesday.

An update to rules regulating development of the lake’s shore area – the so-called shorezone – is up for a vote after more than two decades of debate.

Much of the focus of the debate has been centered around how many new piers and buoys the TRPA will allow to be built or placed on Lake Tahoe.

Under the current proposal, 138 new piers, 1,862 new buoys, six new boat ramps and 235 new slips will be allowed.

The Governing Board will meet at 9:30 a.m. at TRPA’s South Shore office at 128 Market St. in Stateline.

The board is scheduled to hear the shorezone item starting at 10 a.m.
