TRPA to discuss dock expansion

The Tahoe Keys Marina may reach a settlement this week with the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency after TRPA alleged the marina constructed unauthorized dock extensions and rebuilds last year.

A TRPA investigation last June alleged the marina built between 31 and 71 boat parking spaces for which the marina did not get TRPA approval.

The settlement calls for removal of the unauthorized dock extensions, slips and fingers, for the marina to pay a $60,000 fine to the TRPA, and for all future dock additions to be reviewed and approved by TRPA.

The marina has been working with TRPA for the past year to revise its master plan, which hadn’t been reviewed since 1980.

In 1990 TRPA adopted guidelines for marina master plans, which require any marina expansion of more than 10 slips or buoys to have a TRPA-approved master plan.

The Tahoe Keys Marina master plan improvements include 150 additional boat slips and less boat storage on pavement, and an expansion of the restaurant, indoor boat storage facilities, and marina parking.

The master plan is expected to go in front of the TRPA governing board later this year.
