The recreation element of the Regional Plan provides for the development, utilization, and management of the recreational resources of the Region. Its goals and policies provide that recreational opportunities keep pace with public demand, recreational facilities remain high on the development priority list, and the quality of the outdoor recreational experience will be maintained. Recreational opportunities are highly valued by visitors and residents and these recreational resources are one of the major drivers of the regional economy. Factors that influence recreation are the availability of recreational opportunities, the number of visitors using recreation sites, the conditions of the environment and developed recreation facilities, and the ease of accessing recreation sites. The Environmental Improvement Program has a focus on recreation for public land acquisitions to increase recreation opportunities and access to Lake Tahoe’s shoreline.
