Shorezone proposal vote postponed

The proposed Shorezone program that could add hundreds of additional piers and buoys on Lake Tahoe over the next 22 years will not be voted on until March or later, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency announced Monday. The bi-state agencys governing board was to vote on the proposal later this month, but more time is needed to answer questions brought up last month by various California State agencies and Lt. Governor John Garamendi.Jeff Cowen, TRPAs community liaison, said the postponement is basically an issue of scheduling. The shorezone proposal, which would govern all development on Lake Tahoes shore, has to be approved by TRPAs Advisory Planning Commission (APC) before the governing board can take action. The APC postponed a vote in January because of questions on the plan.On Jan. 29, California Lt. Governor John Garamendi wrote a letter stating he was concerned with the number of new piers proposed in the plan and asked the agency to further analyze the proposal.
