The League to Save Lake Tahoe urges California voters to vote yes on 67, no on 65. Placer voters: support Measure M!
We urge you to keep Tahoe and our environment in mind with every choice this election. Read our ballot measure recommendations relevant to efforts to protect Lake Tahoe.  

Tahoe City Lodge serves as a model for Tahoe development 
"Given its location, its environmental benefits and the collaborative process that surrounded its development, the Tahoe City Lodge proposal stands as a model for how developers should proceed at Lake Tahoe," said Darcie Goodman Collins, PhD, the League's executive director. "This is the type of Lake-friendly project we envisioned for Tahoe when the League supported the Regional Plan Update in 2012."
