South Lake Tahoe, CA – The City of South Lake Tahoe is embarking on the planning, design, and construction of the new Community Recreation & Aquatics Center.
You can play an important role as the City moves forward with this exciting project. Please give us a few minutes of your time to share your thoughts regarding your household’s priorities for the center. Even if you do not currently plan to use the new center, we would still like to hear from you.
“We are so excited to be entering this phase of the project,” said Lauren Thomaselli, Recreation Superintendent, “Recreation is so important in South Lake Tahoe and this is the best way for the public to provide their input in what the new center will look like.”

The City has been working on this project since 2010. In 2014 City Council adopted the Parks, Trails, Recreation Master plan to provide direction for enhancing recreation opportunities for residents and visitors by increasing collaborative efforts and focusing resources where they are most needed.
In 2016 Measure P was passed by the voters providing the City with more than $2 million each year to go toward the Rec Center project.
“The voters have made it clear that recreation is a priority in South Lake Tahoe,” said City Manager Joe Irvin, “This rec center will be a place our entire community can come to have fun, stay healthy, and enjoy the benefits they decide to have put in place.”
The deadline for the survey is October 21 so make sure to have your voice heard soon. There will also be a public meeting on October 21.
