Land Bank Pier Program IS/ND Available for Public Review and Comment

Published: Aug 02, 2021

Due August 31, 2021

The California Tahoe Conservancy (Conservancy) has released for public review the Initial Study and Proposed Negative Declaration (IS/ND) for the Land Bank Pier Program (proposed program). The IS/ND evaluates potential environmental effects resulting from the proposed program, which involves authorizing the sale of land coverage and/or restoration credits from the Conservancy’s Land Bank to construct structures that provide access to new or existing piers, existing watercraft moorings, and other structures within the shorezone of Lake Tahoe. The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) has adopted the Lake Tahoe Shoreline Plan, which regulates structures within shorezone of Lake Tahoe. Under the proposed program, the Conservancy would only provide coverage and/or restoration credits for Land Bank transactions that are consistent with TRPA regulations. The Conservancy has no direct role in reviewing or approving applications for new or existing piers or existing moorings.


The IS/ND is available for public review and comments for 30 days from August 2, 2021 through August 31, 2021. Public submit any comments to Thea Graybill at or (530) 318-7685.
