South Lake Tahoe, CA - El Dorado County Supervisor Sue Novasel invites the residents of the County to join her in discussing traffic congestion on weekends and holidays due to visitors exiting the Tahoe Basin. The meeting is scheduled for 6 pm, on February 13th, at the California Conservation Corps (CCC) upstairs conference room located at 1949 Apache Avenue in Meyers. Parking will be limited due to snow storage, so please carpool if you can.
There is a growing concern from neighborhood residents regarding online map applications that redirect travelers off of the main roads and highways and on to local roads. These vehicles cause traffic jams that can hinder emergency responses in neighborhoods.
Supervisor Novasel would like to engage the public in a conversation. The following are some of the topics of the conversation: what efforts are currently being done to address this issue, hearing residents’ concerns, and getting ideas from residents on solutions. She will be joined by representatives from the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office and the California Highway Patrol.
