League questions shorezone proposal

The League to Save Lake Tahoe will host a presentation tonight in Tahoe City on the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s proposed 20-year shorezone policy.

The league has reviewed the plan, which would allow 230 new piers and 1,862 more buoys, and will talk about the associated impacts tonight at Sol y Lago in the Boatworks Mall in Tahoe City.

“It will be an opportunity to introduce major concepts of the shorezone proposal to people. It will give people an opportunity to ask questions and provide input,” said Carl Young, program coordinator for the League. “Its significance is enormous.”

Young said the league’s major concern about the proposal is that there is “not a specific or defined mitigation plan for offsetting the pollution effects from the boats that use the lake.”

The TRPA is set to approve the plan Jan. 31 at the North Tahoe Community Conference Center in Kings Beach.

The league presentation will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight at Sol y Lago in Tahoe City. For more information or to RSVP, contact Catherine Cecchi at 541-5388 or by e-mail at catherine@keeptahoeblue.org.
