Final Tahoe Basin Area Plan and Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (DEIR/EIS) Released
Placer County released the Final Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement for the Placer County Tahoe Basin Area Plan and Tahoe City Lodge Project on November 4, 2016.
The Placer County Tahoe Basin Area Plan would cover all of the county in the Tahoe Basin, approximately 71.2 square miles, including the communities of California North Stateline, Kings Beach, Tahoe Vista, Carnelian Bay, Dollar Point, Tahoe City, Sunnyside, Homewood, and Tahoma. The Tahoe City Lodge Project is included in the draft environmental report and is located at 255 and 265 North Lake Boulevard in Tahoe City, including portions of the Tahoe City Golf Course.
The proposed area plan is a Placer County-initiated update to its land use regulations in the Tahoe Basin. It would update the existing community plans, general plans, plan area statements, maps, and regulations and is being developed to implement the TRPA Regional Plan. Proposed amendments are primarily focused within TRPA-designated town centers in Tahoe City and Kings Beach. The proposed area plan contemplates one near-term redevelopment project, the Tahoe City Lodge, and one environmental redevelopment concept, the Kings Beach Center, both identified as opportunities to incentivize and facilitate redevelopment. The Kings Beach Center is a conceptual mixed-use redevelopment design on property owned by Placer County.
The proposed Tahoe City Lodge Project would redevelop an existing commercial complex into a 118-unit lodge with a mix of hotel rooms and one- and two-bedroom suites, hotel amenities, and parking, as well as redevelopment of the existing clubhouse building and new shared-use parking at the Tahoe City Golf Course.
