4.6 RECREATION ENVIRONMENTAL SETTING

By 

Abstract

The Boulder Bay project site is located in the Nevada portion of the TRPA’s North Stateline Community Plan (NSCP) area (TRPA et al. 1996). A small portion of the project site is situated in TRPA’s Crystal Bay Plan Area (PAS 034) (TRPA 2008). Boulder Bay is situated within the Tahoe Area Plan (TAP) (Washoe County 2006). The NSCP and TAP are detailed planning areas within the Washoe County Comprehensive Plan (WCCP) (Washoe County 1994). The Crystal Bay Plan Area is located along Highway 28 between the NSCP area and Incline Village, and contains a low-density residential area. The Crystal Bay Plan Area is considered a sensitive viewshed and high hazard area at risk of avalanche, soil erosion, and slope failure (TRPA 2008). Outdoor recreational opportunities in the 48-acre NSCP area are limited to the Cal Neva Lodge pool and tennis courts, and the area lacks recreational bicycle and pedestrian trails (TRPA et al. 1996). Placer County recently constructed Class II Bike Lanes on each side of SR 28 that terminate at the Stateline. Signed Class III Bike Paths are signed on each side of SR 28 through the casino core area of Washoe County. The TAP includes 19,165 acres of Washoe County in the Lake Tahoe Basin. The TAP area includes 4,537 acres of park and recreation facilities and 8,612 acres of open space, comprising 24 % and 45 % of the area, respectively (Washoe County 2006). Open space includes U.S. Forest Service lands and portions of Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, which includes Sand Harbor (Washoe County 2006). Washoe County plans and manages regional parks, special use facilities, and community parks in coordination with state, federal, and local agencies. Two administrative agencies of Washoe County manage the neighborhood and/or community park system in the TAP area: The Incline Village Genera
