Deadline extended for Tahoe City firehouse redevelopment opportunity

Kelsie Longerbeam

The deadline to submit a letter of interest for the redevelopment of the old Tahoe City firehouse properties has been extended to Feb. 28 due to the growing public interest and to allow ample time to respond during the busy holiday and ski season.

An addendum to the request for information has been added to help answer potential questions from submitters.
In early November, Placer County released a request for information (RFI) document inviting experienced mixed-use development firms and other interested parties to submit letters of interest for a long-term lease and the reuse development concept for the Tahoe City firehouse properties.

Since its release, the county has received feedback requesting a deadline extension to help interested parties prioritize and organize ideas and goals.

Located in the heart of Tahoe City, the lakefront property offers access to outdoor recreation and proximity to the Tahoe City town center, transit hubs, bike trails, ski resorts, marinas and residential communities.

The county-owned Tahoe City firehouse properties include three buildings: the former North Tahoe Fire Station 51, Tahoe Community Center building, and the former visitor center building.

Prospective developers will have an additional opportunity to visit the Tahoe City firehouse properties guided by county staff, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Jan. 19. The open house tour will take place at the property located at 300 North Lake Blvd. in Tahoe City. Attendance is voluntary; interested parties are not required to attend.

The deadline for the RFI is 5 p.m. on Feb. 28. To review background materials, the RFI and addendum, please visit
