Taking Care of Tahoe

Tahoe is a cherished place, welcoming to all, where people, communities, and nature benefit from a thriving tourism and outdoor recreating economy

Alignment around a Shared Vision

The region created a shared vision to address critical challenges and improve the Tahoe experience – for all – through a comprehensive, collaborative approach. This Shared Vision was shaped over the past year by extensive public engagement, research tools and approaches, and a thorough analysis of how Tahoe’s famed tourism and outdoor recreation experience impacts the region. This vision represents the desired outcome of the Lake Tahoe Destination Stewardship Plan.


The first phase of the planning process took place January – December, 2022 and included touchpoints for all community members to be involved in the plan. In-person public workshops were held around the region twice throughout the year. Everyone should have an opportunity to help create the Lake Tahoe Destination Stewardship Plan.

New approaches for growing challenges

This planning process is collectively redefining how destination management can better serve the greater Tahoe region – now and into the future. The plan will help address recent pressures while optimizing the value of recreation and tourism in a changing world.

Everyone has a role in this, from residents, visitors, and second homeowners, to recreation land managers, business owners, visitors authorities, and local government partners – we all share the desire and responsibility to take care of Tahoe.
