Bringing a Community Vision to Life
About the Project
The Kings Beach Center will reflect the community character and serve as an economic, community and environmental revitalization for the town. Our vision is to provide an opportunity to bring the site up to current environmental standards, provide an economic boost and create a vibrant, quality experience for locals and visitors.
For more than a decade, public input has helped guide today’s plan, which is to improve the physical attributes of the parcel in a way that is economically sustainable and responsive to environmental conditions.
The design will maintain the community character of Kings Beach with its blending of architectural styles and canopy of Jeffrey Pines, Incense Cedars and mixed-firs.
The uses for the site have been designed after years of community, County, TRPA and consultant input. The proposed project will be consistent with the Tahoe Area Plan and Kings Beach Vision Plan.

Located on North Lake Blvd. between Coon St. and Fox St., with the exception of the mini-golf course, this 3.5 acre site is currently underutilized from an economic standpoint. It is in need of improved sustainability and environmental measures.
