Placer Area Plan/Tahoe City Lodge
The Tahoe City Lodge would redevelop an existing commercial complex into a 118-unit lodge that would include a mix of hotel rooms and 1- and 2-bedroom suites, hotel amenities, and parking, as well as redevelopment of the existing clubhouse building and new shared-use parking at the Tahoe City Golf Course. The Lodge project was approved in a joint EIR/EIS with the PCTBAP, a Placer County-initiated update to its land use regulations that apply in the Tahoe Basin. Whit Manley and Chip Wilkins represented the ownership group in obtaining entitlements and approvals for the lodge and the Placer County Tahoe Basin Area Plan (PCTBAP) from Placer County and the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency in 2016 and 2017 respectively. Mr. Manley and Mr. Wilkins represented the ownership group in a lawsuit challenging the EIR/EIS for the project. They settled the case on favorable terms for their client and the project is moving forward.
