We managed a multidisciplinary consulting team in a comprehensive update and environmental impact review of the City of South Lake Tahoe General Plan. The 2030 General Plan, adopted by the City on May 17, 2011, established a vision that changed how the City plans for and manages growth within the complex regulatory environment in the Lake Tahoe Basin. The updated plan was designed to meet the needs of the present community without compromising the needs of future generations. The plan outlines a clear direction for the City to move towards, and eventually achieve, a future that is environmentally, economically, and socially sustainable.
