Future of North Lake Tahoe parking focus of public workshop Monday

TAHOE CITY, Calif. — Placer County will hold a public workshop next week to discuss results of a recently completed parking study of the Kings Beach and Tahoe City business districts.

The goal is to provide an overview of existing parking capacity and use, results of a review of the county’s current parking standards and requirements, and an examination of potential programs such as an in-lieu fee parking program, according to the county.

“An in-lieu program would allow developers to meet some or all of their parking requirements by paying fees, rather than providing parking on-site,” officials said in a statement. “Fee revenue would be used by the county for public parking.”

In the study, LSC Transportation Consultants Inc. proposes recommendations for a plan that “best meets the parking and mobility needs of Kings Beach and Tahoe City,” officials said.

It’s scheduled from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, May 11, at the Tahoe City Public Utility District offices, 221 Fairway Drive in Tahoe City.

“The study is a key part of a larger effort to develop strategies and implementation measures that address parking issues in Kings Beach and Tahoe City while fitting in with the public’s vision for their communities,” officials said.
