SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — El Dorado County, Douglas County and the city of South Lake Tahoe are hosting two community workshops on Dec. 11-12 to discuss the role that outdoor recreation plays in enhancing tourism and community livability for the South Shore. This is a great opportunity for residents to share their insights about parks, recreation, trails, events and programs, so that recreation opportunities can be improved in the future.

All South Shore residents are invited to attend either workshop. The first workshop will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 11 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at South Tahoe High School Student Union, located at 1735 Lake Tahoe Boulevard, South Lake Tahoe. A second workshop will be held on Thursday, Dec. 12 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Kahle Community Center, located at 236 Kingsbury Grade, Stateline, Nev.

Feedback from these workshops will be used to develop recommendations for two recreation plans for the South Shore which include the Parks, Trails and Recreation Master Plan for South Lake Tahoe and El Dorado County and the Tahoe Basin Recreation and Tourism Plan for Douglas County.

A large group discussion about the community’s future vision for parks, recreation and trails, plus the role recreation should play in supporting tourism and economic vitality will take place.

This is the community’s chance to help shape the future of recreation and tourism for the South Shore. Anyone age 15 and over is invited to participate and share their ideas. Residents are encouraged to invite their colleagues, friends, and co-workers to join us this important conversation about the future.

For more information, contact Tracy Franklin, public information officer at the city of South Lake Tahoe at 530-542-6093. Information is also provided on the city’s parks master plan Website: cityofslt.us/recmasterplan.

    Hopefully if only nine are in the room...someone will say--we should reschedule--the community doesnt know. Good,Luck...hopefully a small group of people are not deciding for you folks as well. Be really careful reading the general plan...they are trying to say a small piece of land (14 acres) up here in Pollock Pines is central to all. Of course--one cant get to it during winter...so it would be a part time park. And there are no sidewalks to walk there...that would be expensive because of the slope of the road...wait "slope of the road"--wasnt that why the original park is not feasible? Just a suggestion...read everything you can before you decide to follow the crowd. well that s if your invited. $445,000 was spent on the Pollock Pines Camino park...yet it still doesnt exist...and it has been years in the making. Someone must have grant money for you guys...notice any trails around?

    Last I checked, Pollock Pines wasn't in South Lake Tahoe.
