Tahoe Basin Hazard Mitigation Plan Notification
The Tahoe Transportation District and Tahoe Resource Conservation District, in coordination with regional partners, are developing a Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of this plan is to profile the natural and human-caused hazards in our area, determine the impacts of those hazards on our multi-modal transportation system and land conservation efforts, and develop strategies to mitigate future disasters.
The planning process, a requirement of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), will include a public review period, expected to occur this winter. Once approved by FEMA and adopted by both agencies, Tahoe Transportation District and Tahoe Resource Conservation District will be eligible for certain types of federal funding to help create a more disaster resilient Lake Tahoe Basin. Because this plan is funded through the California Office of Emergency Services, certain requirements in the plan will only address the California side of the Lake Tahoe Basin. It is our hope that future updates of the plan will include the Nevada side of our community.

Tahoe Transportation District Begins Paid Parking With Park Tahoe Pilot For The Tahoe East Shore Trail
90 new off-highway parking spots completed last year near Ponderosa Ranch Road provide safer recreational access to the State Route 28 Corridor and Tahoe East Shore Trail
In an effort to enhance recreational access to Lake Tahoe by providing and maintaining trails and safe off-highway parking, the Tahoe Transportation District (TTD) unveiled the Park Tahoe pilot program at the Tahoe East Shore Trail trailhead, located north of Ponderosa Ranch Road. The new paid parking facility offers 90 metered spots to expand off-highway parking options along the heavily frequented stretch of State Route 28 from Incline Village to Sand Harbor State Park. The new transit-accessible parking consists of three lots, which were completed last summer by the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT). Pay station kiosks are located at each lot and accept credit card payments only.
