Washoe Tribe seeks input on Meeks Bay Resort improvements

The Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California is hosting an open house on Nov. 24 at the Forest Supervisor’s office in South Lake Tahoe to seek public input on improvements at Meeks Bay Resort. The Washoe Tribe operates Meeks Bay Resort, located on Lake Tahoe’s West Shore, under a special use permit issued by the U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit.

The resort provides day-use beach access, marina operations, cabins, and RV and tent camping.

The Tribe will present preliminary concepts that look at different ways to address pedestrian and vehicular circulation improvements, water quality best management practices, reorganization of overnight accommodations, and streamlining of overall facilities operations. The meeting will use an open house format, and the public is welcome to stop by anytime from 5 to 7 p.m. The tribe will consider feedback on the preliminary concepts in developing a proposed project that the Forest Service will analyze in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act. The Forest Supervisor’s Office is located at 35 College Drive in South Lake Tahoe.
