The will vote on the first reading of a South Lake Tahoe City Code to Prohibit Commercial Use of Public Docks. The City is responsible for operating the El Dorado Beach Boat Launch. In recent years, commercial uses at the boat launch and dock have significantly increased with boat rental companies using the boat dock for private business purposes. Staff say the increased use has resulted in adverse impacts to public recreational uses and public safety concerns. The proposed code amendment will eliminate negative impacts from commercial uses and improve public safety on and off the water.

There will be a presentation of the City’s Strategic Plan.

On the agenda is an appeal by Perfect Union SLT, LLC of Planning Commission Resolution 2021-02. On January 14, 2020 the City Council approved, by ordinance, a cannabis development agreement with Perfect Union SLT, LLC. They were approved to open a microbusiness on James Avenue by February 13, 2021 but asked for an extension of six months to open their business. The Planning Commission denied the extension and their second request, to change the name on the permit from Perfect Union SLT, LLC to James Tahoe, LLC. The local representatives remain the same but they have severed ties with Perfect Union.
