The ONE TAHOE initiative is focused on filling the $1.53 billion shortfall in funding needed in the Lake Tahoe Basin over the next 23 years to fully implement the Regional Transportation Plan and sustain the transportation system beyond. Since its launch in January 2019, the ONE TAHOE process commenced stakeholder outreach and public meetings to solicit input on potential funding solutions. 27 ideas related to funding mechanisms have been evaluated. Of the 27 ideas, five have made it through the first two tiers of a three-tier screening process: cordon pricing – basin entry fee, vehicle miles traveled (VMT) fee, tolling, zoned transportation user fee, and vacancy tax.

Other issues that may be discussed at the May 19 meeting include the City of South Lake Tahoe Climate Action Plan, El Dorado County potential caps on VHRs, and the City timeframe to submit plans after an allocation is granted. Any CATT member is welcome to attend the LGAC meeting. Please contact CATT Government Affairs Manager Pat Davison 530.550.9999 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about South Shore issues and LGAC activities.
CATT Members Prepare for El Dorado County Meeting on VHR Limits
South Shore members are also preparing for an El Dorado County meeting on May 13 to discuss the new TRPA rules regarding locational requirements for Vacation Home Rentals (VHRs). District 5 Supervisor Sue Novasel has scheduled two virtual meetings for public participation – Wednesday, May 13 and Wednesday, June 10 – both to be held from 4:00 - 6:00 PM.
Topics for May 13 are:
-- TRPA Guidelines & Requirements for VHRs
-- Potential changes to the County Ordinance in order to be in-line with TRPA
-- Options to reduce the number of VHRs in the basin
The second meeting June 10 will be dealing with the feedback from the first meeting.
CATT’s main concern is the negative impact on construction if VHRs are reduced. How many homes might not be constructed if a VHR reduction is implemented? One way to look at this is any new home could be used for a VHR so the impact could be significant. Without specific information related to construction, the County and public are making decisions without understanding the potential negative impacts to members of the community. CATT members will work to insure that the discussion is balanced and request that information is provided to all stakeholders before decisions are made.
Questions about the potential VHR cap should be directed to CATT Government Affairs Manager Pat Davison: email@example.com or 530.550.9999
