Placer supes OK $5.15 million TOT contract with NLTRA

TAHOE CITY, Calif. – The Placer County Board of Supervisors took up several Lake Tahoe-related actions last Tuesday at the board’s regularly scheduled meeting in Auburn, including approval of the annual Transient Occupancy Tax contract with the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association.

According to a Placer County press release, the $5.15 million agreement, paid for by TOT collected on the North Shore, “helps promote tourism and provides guidance in funding infrastructures to enhance to North Lake Tahoe communities.”

The contract “maintains tourism and business development and services while balancing other Placer County Tahoe operational needs such as the North Tahoe health clinic, beach maintenance, additional Placer County Sheriff’s Office patrols over the Fourth of July holiday and transit service.”

The Placer supes last Tuesday also approved an amended lease for the Jackpine parking lot in Tahoe City. According to the county, the lot in Tahoe City opened in 2006 and is available for off-street parking in the Tahoe City business district. Land for the lot, which has space for 40 cars, was leased under an agreement between the landowners and the former Placer County Redevelopment Agency.

With the legislatively enacted dissolution of all redevelopment agencies in the state, the county’s successor redevelopment agency is now overseen by an oversight Board, according to a press release, which instructed the agency to renegotiate the land lease. The board approved an amended lease “that will save $357,624 over the term of the lease,” which runs until 2036.
