Communications & Outreach

The Communications & Outreach workgroup has been working to spread the word and support  growth of the Collaborative by developing our new website and working to keep you informed via newsletters.

Community Mobility

The Community Mobility workgroup is working with the City of South Lake Tahoe and the Lake Tahoe Unified School District (LTUSD) to apply for an On Our Way grant due March 14, 2014 which would fund a Safe Routes to School Master Plan. This would allow us to apply for a Safe Routes to School grant next spring to construct sidewalks at Bijou and Tahoe Valley elementary school and bike lanes behind the middle school connecting to Al Tahoe, Highway 50, and the recreation center. In addition, we are supporting bike and pedestrian safety throughout the South Shore by meeting with local jurisdictions and are providing feedback on the Tahoe Valley area plan and Douglas County Five Year Transportation Plan.
