Document Description
The IS/MND analyzes the 56 Acres Master Plan, which would create a signature public park located in the City of South Lake Tahoe. The project goals focus on recreational and civic needs, creation of meaningful world-class facilities and public open space, environmental sustainability, cultural preservation, water quality, traffic mitigation, aesthetic improvements, and habitat preservation. The Master Plan would serve to guide the City in capital improvement planning, programmatic planning, maintenance and operational planning, and budgetary decision making. The Master Plan would relocate the existing campground within the plan area; improve circulation and connectivity, including shared-use path and beach access near Lakeview Commons and construction of a new "Main Street;" construct new play and gather spaces, including an outdoor event space; and construct a new Civic Center to house City Council chambers. The first project to be implemented under the Master Plan would be the South Lake Tahoe Recreation and Aquatics Center that would replace the existing South Lake Tahoe Recreation and Swim Complex.
