Placer supervisors say rafters can’t use transit center

TAHOE CITY “-Rafters won’t be welcome to park at the proposed Tahoe City Transit Center when the facility does go in on State Highway 89 in Tahoe City.

The Placer County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously at their Tuesday meeting at Northstar-at-Tahoe to adopt an ordinance prohibiting rafters from parking at the facility, as Deputy Director of Public Works Peter Kraatz said the lot would be reserved for those using public transit, biking and walking through Tahoe City to avoid congestion. The ordinance also included a stipulation the lot close from midnight to 6 a.m.

The board also voted unanimously to apply for $1,426,786 in economic stimulus funds from the Federal Transit Administration. If the applications are successful, $250,000 would be used for preventative maintenance on Tahoe Area Regional Transportation equipment, $75,000 for the proposed Transit Center and $1.15 million for new buses.
