Recreation and Parks

Parks and Facilities

In 1968 the North Tahoe Public Utility District Board of Directors created the Parks Department to oversee the development of the former sewer ponds into the North Tahoe Regional Park. Over the years, many facilities have been developed in the Park either by volunteers, District employees or State or Local grants. Since then, the District has also acquired and begun redevelopment of the Tahoe Vista Recreation Area, a public beach and boat launch facility, at the intersection of Highway 28 and National Avenue in Tahoe Vista. In addition to maintaining Parks and Facilities owned by the District, the North Tahoe Public Utility District also manages and maintains the public beaches in our District that are owned by Placer County.

Visit our Parks website for detailed information on the various facilities and recreation opportunities available within the North Tahoe Public Utility District.

CFD 94-1

Community Facilities District (CFD) 94-1 is a Mello Roos assessment passed in 1992 by the residents of the North Tahoe Public Utility District to support the North Tahoe Regional Park and other recreational opportunities provided by the District. Since the Mello Roos was passed, more recreational amenities have been added to the Park, as well as the construction of Tahoe Vista Recreation Area.

Funds collected from this tax measure also provide an annual subsidy to local youth organizations that operate recreational programs for the youth in the community. These subsidies come in the form of cash donations as well as in kind donations such as free field usage (including the lining and required prep time) and field maintenance.

In 2016, CFD 94-1 provides approximately $575,000 for the upkeep, operation and maintenance of District facilities as well as to subsidize these youth programs. These are the only funds the District has to maintain and operate these facilities other than use and parking fees collected or rent paid by concessionaires. No property tax money or other funding sources go toward the operation of these facilities.
