North Tahoe has a lot to say about planning projects

The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency wanted to engage the public in the early planning phases of the Community Enhancement Program.

And the people responded.

Residents and business owners said that affordable housing for the community’s workforce is a major priority.

They want to see Lake Tahoe communities set the bar on progressive “green” development.

And they welcomed plans that will revitalize downtown areas.

Those are the predominant trends seen in opinions, critiques and comments taken from the Community Enhancement Program’s public meeting last month, when seven program applicants unveiled their proposed development concepts to more than 200 attendees.

Streamline Consulting Group recently compiled all of the meeting’s feedback into a single document for the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and the developers. Consultants took notes on conversations between developers and participants, and 48 attendees submitted comments in writing.
