Description
The records of the California Tahoe Regional Planning Agency cover the years 1974-1984 and consist of 14 cubic feet of textual records. The records are organized into the following record series: Governing Board Meeting Packets, Subject Files, Press Files, Reports, Lot Count and Population Estimate Files, Transportation Plan Program Files, Carrying Capacity Files, Shore Zone Study Files, and John Vostrez Study Files.
Background
The Lake Tahoe Basin, which spans across the California and Nevada state line, has long been known for its rich scenic beauty as well as its abundance of commercial and recreational opportunity. Tourism, logging, and shoreline development have had a presence around the lake since the middle 1800s, but not without dispute. Early on, conservationists argued that manmade environments were a risk to the natural ecology found in the basin. It was believed that unless protected, the rare features of the region would be lost.
