Pathway still needs forum volunteers

" Sun staff reports

Lake Tahoe public agencies are seeking volunteers to serve on the Pathway 2007 Forum, a group of 43 individuals representing various interests in the Lake Tahoe region.

Pathway 2007 is the collaborative process local agencies have embarked upon to chart a 20-year vision for the Lake Tahoe Basin.

The Pathway agencies are seeking nominations to fill vacant seats on the forum ” a citizen’s committee. The five available seats are: a South Shore at-large seat, a North Shore at-large seat, a representative of regional non-governmental social services, a representative for regional community sustainability and a regional at-large seat.

Although there are only five seats of 43 currently open, applications will be accepted in all categories, given the likelihood that some forum members will leave their positions over the next two years.

Pathway 2007 is a collaborative process to include public input and community vision in the next 20-year regional plan of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, the Forest Plan for the U.S. Forest Service, as well as plan amendments for the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection, and Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board.

The TRPA’s regional plan sets the pace and amount of development within the Tahoe Basin.

Potential nominees should visit for additional information, or call (775) 588-4547, ext. 235.
