TAHOE CITY, Calif. — Applications are being accepted for a newly formed Lake Tahoe design review committee.

On Oct. 21, the Placer County Board of Supervisors OK’d dissolving the North Tahoe and Tahoe City design review committees to form a combined Tahoe Basin Design Review Committee.

The new committee was proposed to ensure a quorum is established at monthly meetings, streamline the meeting process and provide opportunities for a quicker process for design review, according to Placer County.

Similar to the former committees, the Tahoe Basin Design Review Committee will look at projects that can include, but aren’t limited to, new construction, additions to existing buildings and signage to ensure county regulations, adopted design standards and policies are met, said Stacy Wydra, senior planner for Placer County.

The committee then makes recommendation to the county’s planning director.

It will meet once a month, with special meetings scheduled as needed depending on the number of design review applications received.

The committee’s boundary ranges from the county’s border on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe to the California/Nevada state line.

Each member of the seven-member committee must be a resident or property owner within the boundary.

Committee members will serve two-year staggered terms without compensation.

Applications will be reviewed by District 5 supervisor Jennifer Montgomery, with the Board of Supervisors appointing committee members, Wydra said.

Completed applications should be sent to the board of supervisors clerk at 175 Fulweiler Ave., Room 101, Auburn, CA 95603.
