Virtual Town Hall scheduled to discuss the Lake Tahoe Rent Methodology Study

Nov 5, 2020 | Leases & Permits

Commission staff will host a virtual town hall on Tuesday, November 10, at 10:00 a.m. to discuss the Lake Tahoe Rent Methodology Study. You can join the meeting from a desktop computer, laptop, mobile device, or telephone. Below is a link to join the town hall.

The Commission retained an appraiser to review the rent methodology it uses for use and occupation of state lands at Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake. The Commission is also updating its 2012 Category 1 Lake Tahoe Berths and buoys benchmark rental rates and establishing a Category 2 Lake Tahoe benchmark rental rate for non-water dependent uses. These rates are used to determine rent or other compensation as part of a lease with the Commission for the occupation and use of state-owned land in Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake. The study provides an independent, third-party evaluation of various rent methodologies and recommends a rent-setting methodology and benchmark rates going forward.

When: November 10, 2020 10:00 a.m.
