Tahoe Seeks Unified Vision

Screen Shot 2021-07-05 at 4.01.19 PM
Initially formed under the Environmental Improvement Program, the Lake Tahoe Sustainable Recreation and Tourism Partnership has grown and evolved during the COVID-19 pandemic to better respond to and prepare for high use and visitation at recreation sites across the Tahoe region.
On February 25, 2021, over 65 public and private executive level partners came together for an important dialogue: being more intentional about how the region wants to present Tahoe, what expectations we will hold out to those who come here, and how to tackle systemic challenges the region is facing in visitor management.
That workshop identified near and long term priorities for the partnership as well as a potential organizational structure. A full summary of the workshop can be found here.
One key piece of the puzzle: workshop participants identified a need to establish a shared vision of Tahoe’s tourism and outdoor recreation future.
The Partnership released a request for proposal (RFP) on June 14 to solicit the professional services of leading visitor and destination management consultants to develop a shared vision and implementation roadmap for Tahoe’s future. The RFP is open until July 6 with an anticipated award of contract on July 16.

A Unique Crossing

Rather than demolishing the section Interstate 80 that spans the Mississippi River connecting Illinois and Iowa, a local advocate has proposed to repurpose it and turn it into a National Park. The 55-year old bridge that has provided safe passage to vehicles, could become a pedestrian and wildlife bridge, bringing new opportunities and tourism to stagnant parts of the city. As we look to find ways to keep our animals safe and humans recreating across Highway 395, this will be one to keep an eye on!
