Sustainable Recreation Program Improve Public Access
Improvements to public lakefront properties at El Dorado and Conolley Beaches in South Lake Tahoe, focused on public lake access, open space, view corridors, shoreline stability, and water quality. In 2014 and 2015, the Conservancy acquired additional land, removed development and stabilized impacted areas, and developed initial conceptual plans for public amenities. In 2019, the Conservancy repaired severe shoreline, drainage infrastructure, and public access failures. In 2020, the Conservancy initiated comprehensive planning, including environmental review for Alta Mira and engineering for Conolley Beach. In 2021, the Conservancy will continue planning efforts.
