The Park Tahoe Program
The Park Tahoe program, which was launched in 2020, offers 90 metered spots to expand off-highway parking options along the heavily frequented stretch of Highway 28. The program is intended to pay administrative and operation costs of parking meters, provide revenue reserve that would fund operations and maintenance of the East Shore Trail, provide revenue for infrastructure preservation, and provide matching revenue for transit services. From 2020 to 2021 the meters generated $246,818 and are projected to generate $209,118 in 2021 to 2022 year due to the impacts associated with last year’s wildfires. (Source)
