Placer County to hold community plan meeting Oct. 17 in Kings Beach

KINGS BEACH, Calif. – Placer County will hold a town hall meeting on the Tahoe Basin Community Plan Update on Wednesday, Oct. 17, at 6 p.m. in the North Tahoe Event Center in Kings Beach.

The meeting will be a chance for residents to learn more about the update process, the status of the plan and the work being done by the county’s community plan working groups.

Placer County currently has nine community plans for the Tahoe Basin. Most are joint planning documents developed about 20 years ago by the county and the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, according to a press release.

With TRPA is in the process of updating its regional plan, Placer County intends to consolidate the nine plans into a single policy document with four planning areas. Each planning area will have its own distinct zoning ordinance and community-specific design guidelines:

• North Tahoe East, which covers Kings Beach and the Stateline community;

• Greater Tahoe City, which includes Tahoe City, Tahoe City Gateway, Lake Forest, and Dollar Hill;

• North Tahoe West, which includes Carnelian Bay and Tahoe Vista; and

• The West Shore, which includes Sunnyside, Homewood and Tahoma.

For more information, contact Supervising Planner Crystal Jacobsen at 530-745-3085 or Information is available online at Departments/CommunityDevelopment/Planning.aspx. When the Planning Services Division page appears, hit the “Tahoe Basin Community Plan Update” link in the “Quick Links” section.
