South Tahoe's General Plan

General Plan Update Alternatives ReportThe City published an Alternatives Report on May 12, 2009. The purpose of the General Plan Alternatives process is to examine different possible approaches to accommodating future development, economic growth, and environmental preservation. The report evaluates the economic, environmental, and social implications of each alternative future to assist the community and decision makers in weighing the benefits and drawbacks for each alternative. Public discussion of the benefits and drawbacksof each alternative will assist City officials in ultimately choosing a preferred alternative.The report is made up of two main parts:
Part I: Land Use Alternatives is a summary of three land use alternatives.Part II: Policy Options is a summary of existing and emerging policy conceptsthat addresses major issues facing the City.Please click on the link below to download a copy of the Alternatives Report:Alternatives ReportCommunity Workshop #4Please join us for the fourth Community Workshop on the South Lake Tahoe General Plan Update.
