SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The Lake Tahoe region is invited to participate in an upcoming online visioning workshop to help create the Lake Tahoe Destination Stewardship Plan.
The virtual session will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, June 9, and will complement a series of in-person workshops earlier this month that drew nearly 140 attendees, according to a press release from the Center for Responsible Travel.
Another virtual workshop will be held in Spanish from 6-7:30 p.m. on June 10 to gather additional feedback from the Spanish-speaking community. The links to register for both workshops can be found at StewardshipTahoe.org.
More information about the one-year planning process is available at StewardshipTahoe.org. Everyone with a stake in the future of the greater Tahoe area – including full- and part-time residents, business operators, front-line workers, outdoor enthusiasts and others – is encouraged to participate.
A wide-ranging partnership is driving the plan that includes local visitor authorities, the Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California, local governments and nonprofit organizations representing a two-state, six-county and one-city region.
An initial group of 13 organizations came together around a clear vision: “Lake Tahoe’s communities and economy are rooted in recreation and tourism, touching the lives of all who work, live and play. here. The region comes together to create a shared destination stewardship plan that will balance the needs of the environment, businesses, visitors and local communities. This new shared strategy will inspire everyone to take care of Tahoe.
A team of experienced consultants help develop the plan, including the Center for Responsible Travel, Better Destinations and the Travel Foundation. The team also includes South Lake Tahoe-based research firm SMG Consulting and Civitas Advisors, which specializes in sustainable financing solutions.
All are encouraged to sign up for the project newsletter to receive updates on planning results and future opportunities to participate in a resident survey and future vision workshops. The plan is expected to be completed in early 2023. Questions can be directed to the planning team at [email protected].
