Area Plan Documents

Local government agencies in the Tahoe Basin are working to create Area Plans that will integrate with the Lake Tahoe Regional Plan. Area Plans are part of the transition to more environmental planning and permitting by local governments. The Regional Plan calls for TRPA to focus more on regional issues and for local governments to take on a greater role in attainment of environmental thresholds.

Here you will find documents and information pertaining to each Area Planning effort being conducted by local government agencies. You can get involved in any of the planning efforts by contacting the local government drafting the plans.

What is the Meyers Area Plan?

The Meyers Area Plan is the comprehensive long-term plan for the Meyers Community. It seeks to achieve the community’s vision, streamline project permitting and recognize Meyers’ unique characteristics. The Meyers Community Advisory Council worked closely with El Dorado County and Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) staff to update the existing Meyers Community Plan and convert it into the Draft Meyers Area Plan.

A community meeting is scheduled for Wednesday March 19 from 6-8 p.m. at the CCC building in Meyers to gather input  on proposed revisions to the draft Area Plan.
