Future of North Tahoe’s Speedboat Beach topic of Oct. 19 meeting

Staff report

KINGS BEACH, Calif. — Placer County will hold a public meeting to gather feedback regarding the future of Speedboat Beach on Monday, Oct. 19, from 6-7:30 p.m. at the North Tahoe Event Center in Kings Beach.

The Placer County Board of Supervisors and the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association provided $50,000 in March to develop a master plan for the public beach — also known as Bucks Beach — located at the intersection of Harbor Avenue and Lake Street in Kings Beach, near the Nevada state line.

“Speedboat Beach is a popular destination for residents and visitors, but there are concerns about traffic circulation and parking, along with general misuse of the beach and surrounding areas,” officials said. “Enforcement of rules, informational and interpretive signs, the potential for a kiosk and options for restroom facilities will be topics of discussion presented by multiple Placer County agencies.”
