South Shore Community Revitalization Project


The US 50 / South Shore Community Revitalization Project (also known as the Loop road project) is a community development project that addresses contemporary affordable housing needs, economic development catalyst needs, pedestrian, bike, and transit needs, auto needs, environmental improvement for water quality, green house gas reduction, other air quality improvement, and scenic improvement consistent with the City of South Lake Tahoe and Douglas County Master Plans, Local Area Plans, and the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency Land Use Plan.

A community meeting about the project is being held on Wednesday, February 10th from 4:30pm-7pm at the South Tahoe Middle School located at 2940 Lake Tahoe Blvd. in the Multi-Purpose Room Gym. Information on this project is available online at  http://www.tahoetransportation.org/us50. The meeting will feature a presentation of the project.

Questions about the project are being taken in advance. You can submit your questions to:
Tracy Franklin at tfranklin@cityofslt.us
Questions must be received by 5pm on February 8th.

Here’s a list of some of the benefits that will be provided by this project:

  • Realigning traffic would reduce commercial core congestion. Fewer idling vehicles would also cut emissions for better air quality.
  • Walking, biking and reliable transit would be popular transportation options on a safer, “Main Street” with community gathering places.
  • Commercial core revitalization would increase visitor spending and catalyze substantial, adjacent private construction investment.

The project is not only intended to revitalize the South Shore of Lake Tahoe but will also integrate with numerous existing and planned Projects including the following:
• Nevada Stateline to Stateline Bikeway – South Shore Demonstration Multi-use Trail from Stateline to Round Hill Pines Resort
• Harrison Avenue Improvement Project
• US 50 Water Quality and Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvement Project – Ski Run to Trout Creek
• Linear Park Multi-use Trail
• Van Sickle Bi-State Park
• Transit Shelter and Service Improvements
• Kingsbury Grade Improvement Project
• South Tahoe Greenway (future)
• Lake Tahoe Passenger Ferry Project (future)

There are currently 209 homes on the market in South Lake Tahoe as of Jan 11th of 2013, 68 of which are in escrow. Of the homes in escrow, the prices range from a low of $94,500 up to $1,7000,000, all with an average of $202 price per square feet. The home listed for $94,500 is a 2 bedrooms/2 baths/no car garage home with 962sqft built in 1963, located in the Bijou neighborhood. The home listed for $1,700,000 is a 5 bedrooms/4 baths/3 cars garage lake front home with 3,176sqft built in 1985 in the Tahoe Keys neighborhood.

Summarizing all this information we can realize that compared to 2011, in the past 12 months we had a lot more sales sales and less homes on the market. The current inventory of homes is very short and we are having a lot of buyer’s competition. The demand currently exceed the supply so we are in a seller’s market. Most of the time if a home is priced competitively the owners usually receive multiple offers. If you were considering selling your home, right now is great time to put your home on the market.

Forest roads in the Lake Tahoe Basin closing for winter


The U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit has begun the annual closure of forest roads around the Lake Tahoe Basin. Fall closure dates are established by the Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM). The MVUM also establishes target opening dates after the winter season.

These dates are dependent on soil conditions in order to avoid resource damage and erosion potential. You may consult the MVUM for specific roads and dates by visiting http://www.fs.usda.gov/goto/ltbmu/TravelManagement.

Once the gates are closed, forest users are reminded to park safely off the roadway, park only in designated spots and avoid parking in front of gates. For more information on gate closures, contact the Forest Supervisor’s office at (530) 543-2694
