California State Parks and the California Tahoe Conservancy (Conservancy) will host a public workshop on the potential reconstruction of the public pier at Kings Beach State Recreation Area (KBSRA). The workshop will be held on Wednesday April 1, 2015 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the North Tahoe Event Center (8318 N. Lake Boulevard, Kings Beach). The Conservancy and California State Parks seek public input on recreational user needs, pier design features, and location alternatives.

“This project is a step towards upgrading the facilities at Kings Beach State Recreation Area,” said Marilyn Linkem, Sierra District Superintendent, California State Parks. State Parks and the Conservancy signed an agreement last year to coordinate improvements at Kings Beach SRA.

 

The upgrades are being considered to increase accessibility for pedestrians and boaters on the pier, as well as offer more recreation opportunities at Kings Beach SRA. The current effort will update a 2003 Conservancy study, and reassess the feasibility of building a new pier.

“A new public pier would complement and build upon the recent investments in Kings Beach,” said Conservancy Executive Director Patrick Wright. “We encourage the public to share their views on how to proceed with this project.”

More information is available at http://tahoe.ca.gov including a comment form for those who cannot attend the workshop.
