[ARCHIVED] Public workshop to be held on Tourist Core Area Plan Amendment


South Lake Tahoe, CA- The City of South Lake Tahoe (City) and Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) are seeking public scoping comments on an applicant-initiated proposal to rezone two parcels located within the boundary of the City of South Lake Tahoe Tourist Core Area Plan. The proposed amendment submitted by HVR Acquisitions would rezone the two parcels from Recreation to Tourist Center Mixed Use (TSC-MU).

The proposed amendment only addresses a proposed rezoning of both parcels and does not provide any approval for a future project that may be submitted to the City and TRPA for review and approval.

  • Public Workshop on November 12 at 5:00 p.m.
  • A public workshop will be held on Thursday, November 12, 2020 starting at 5:00 p.m. to explain the proposed amendment and to provide an opportunity for the public to ask questions.
  • To register for the virtual meeting, send an email to Candace H. Stowell, AICP at or call (530) 542-7405. A Go To Meeting link will be sent to registrants.

More information on the amendment request is provided below.

3828 Montreal Road (APN 029-441-03)

HVR Acquisitions is proposing to rezone the parcel located at 3828 Montreal Rd. from Recreation (REC) to Tourist Center Mixed-Use (TSC-MU). The parcel is 2.6 acres with 1.5 acres verified as Class 7 and 1.1 acres verified as Class 1b (Stream Environment Zone).

Although this amendment request does not include approval of any projects, HVR intends to develop a boutique hotel or condominium development consisting of up to 20 units on the parcel’s 1.5-acre Class 7 site. Whether this parcel is developed as a tourist or residential project, the units will be offered as short-term rentals. No commercial uses are proposed on this parcel.

HVR is considering acquiring an existing developed tourist accommodation property to be demolished and restored. The existing TAUs would be transferred to 3828 Montreal Road to

support the balance of the development if not all of it. This course of action would either reduce or eliminate a potential increase in vehicle miles traveled (VMT). Any increase in VMT will be mitigated.

Back Parcel (Parcel 029-240-011)

HVR Acquisitions is also proposing to rezone the back parcel from Recreation (REC) to Tourist Center Mixed-Use (TSC-MU). The back parcel is located behind the former Colony Inn Parcel, which is located at 3794 Montreal Road. The back parcel is approximately 1.29 acres and is classified as approximately 0.5 acre in Class 7 while the remainder of the parcel is Class 1b (Stream Environment Zone).

Although this amendment does not include approval of any project, HVR Acquisitions intends to develop up to four (4) additional multi-family residential units on this parcel as Phase 2 of the Multi-Family Project conditionally approved for 3794 Montreal Road (former Colony Inn Parcel). An application is pending with the City to merge 3794 Montreal Road and the back parcel into a single parcel. The multi-family residential units will be subdivided into individual airspace condominiums and rented as short-term vacation homes.
