May 1, 2015 (MEYERS, Calif.) – El Dorado County will be hosting a Meyers Area Plan Open House to share information and solicit ideas and opinions from residents, Wednesday, May 6, 5:30pm – 7:30pm at Lake Tahoe Environmental Science Magnet School, 1095 E San Bernardino Ave., Meyers, CA.
The Meyers Area Plan serves as the long-term land use guide to maintain and enhance the rural character of Meyers and proposes revisions to building design and other standards. It consolidates County and Tahoe Regional Planning Agency permitting requirements into one consistent set of regulations that simplifies permitting for small projects. It also identifies needed improvements in the community such as bike trails, signage and intersection improvements. The revised Plan is an update of the 1993 Meyers Community Plan, originally designed as a five year plan.
Opening remarks from the County Board of Supervisors Chair will be followed by a breakout session with opportunities for public questions and comments. County, TRPA, Caltrans and California Tahoe Conservancy representatives will staff various stations to address topics on recreation, transportation, land use, and design.
The County is encouraging area residents and interested persons to attend and participate in the discussions by bringing ideas or photos of other communities that would complement the Meyers vision for the area plan.
A Board of Supervisors Workshop will be scheduled this summer to discuss the initiation of the environmental review of the Draft Plan.
