Tahoe shorezone rules up for discussion

After several months of delay, Tahoe’s planning agency will release proposed rules on piers, buoys and motorboats on Lake Tahoe at a public workshop at Cal Neva Lodge in Crystal Bay on May 25.

The workshop is expected to last all day Thursday. The rules will likely include regulations about how many new piers and buoys will be allowed on Lake Tahoe in the next 20 years, prohibitions on new construction in publicly owned areas of the lakeshore, as well as rules regarding motorized watercraft.

The item is on the agenda of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s Governing Board, which will meet on other matters on May 24 in Kings Beach. That day the board will decide whether to release $35,000 from a “shorezone mitigation fund” to conduct a study of motorized watercraft on Lake Tahoe.
