Lake Tahoe’s Tourism Accommodation Unit System
If you attended Wednesday’s TRYP Workshop, you’re probably fired up to make an impact in South Lake Tahoe’s future. Questions from the audience to our panel showed that many of our members are ready to start influencing economic development to create jobs and make the South Shore more walk-able, bike-able and aligned with a mountain town identity. If that describes your stance, we have a way to speak up for what you want to change!
There was a lot of discussion at the workshop regarding how the Tourism Accommodation Unit system is inflating the value of dilapidated buildings, hindering smarter, more environmentally friendly land use. If that’s an issue you want to take up with the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s Board (which is meeting soon to set priorities for the year!), you can submit a letter asking them to change the TAU system. Send your letters to:
Mr. Casey Beyer, Chair Mr. Jim Lawrence, Vice Chair
Members, Governing Board
Tahoe Regional Planning Agency
PO Box 5310 Stateline, NV 89449
Re: Consideration for Governing Board Priority Setting Workshop
Here’s an example of a letter that was recently submitted to the TRPA about this: http://www.tahoechamber.org/
