The City at Work
The City at Work initiative was adopted by the City Council in May, 2011 with the adoption of the City's first-ever Business Plan. The Initiative is a coordinated effort to serve the public better by keeping the public more informed of projects going on in the City, provide easy access to project updates and progress photos. Sign up to stay informed when we post project updates or stay informed by returning to these pages.

2018 Projects
D Street Public Works Facility

Project Manager: Jim Marino
Statue: Design
Schedule: 2018

The City acquired a parcel located at 1740 D Street to create an office and industrial facility for the City’s Public Works Department staff and equipment currently located at the Rufus Allen Corporation Yard and the Tata Lane Offices.

By relocating the staff and equipment at the Rufus Allen location, the City realizes potential for increased recreational opportunities and facilities at that location in conjunction with the proposed recreation center rehabilitation and future 56 acres project.

Lake Tahoe Blvd Bike Trail
Project Manager: Randy Carlson
Status: Design
Schedule: Completed 2020

This project will design and construct a class 1 bike trail, ADA compliant ramps, and streetlights along the 0.6 mile section of Lake Tahoe Boulevard from the intersection of Viking Way (D-Street) to the intersection of State Hwy 89 and US Highway 50 (South Wye). The project is currently in the design phase with construction expected in 2020.

Sierra Blvd Streetscape
Project Manager: Stan Hill
Status: Implementation
Schedule: 2018

The primary intent of the project is the rehabilitation of the 0.6-mile stretch of Sierra Blvd from Palmira Avenue to Barbara Ave. The rehabilitation of Sierra Blvd will include redesign of the roadway section, the addition of bike lane(s), paths, pedestrian sidewalks and the addition of streetscape improvements such as pedestrian lighting, hardscape, and landscape improvements in conjunction with a Rule 20 Utility undergrounding project that occurred in 2011. The project will also provide corridor water quality improvements and tie-in with the erosion control improvements surrounding the project area. The Complete Streets project would provide a major link.

Bijou Park Creek SEZ/Watershed Restoration
Project Manager: Jason Burke
Status: Implementation
Schedule: 2018

The project aims to address water quality and flooding issues in the Lower Bijou Park Creek area (Phase 1), which currently discharges runoff from roadways, commercial, and residential are directly into the Ski Run Marina. The area is subject to historic flooding due to undersized and deteriorating infrastructure in the lower watershed area. The project will include restoration of SEZ and associated water quality improvements to reduce sediment and nutrient loads in urban runoff discharged to Lake Tahoe.

Upper Bijou Park Creek Restoration
Project Manager: Jason Burke
Status: Planning
Schedule: 2020

Bijou Park Creek watershed is one of the most urbanized within the Lake Tahoe Basin, including encroachment of impervious coverage (buildings, parking lots, and roads) into historic stream environment zones (SEZs). The watershed-scale effort will address fine sediment particle and nutrient loading associated with urban and roadway runoff while seeking to alleviate flooding with SEZ restoration. The planning and design will consider opportunities to address the alteration of the upper watershed when large amount of fill that created the Heavenly California Lodge parking lot inadvertently altered drainage patterns in the watershed, routing new runoff into the constrained conveyance system.

Tahoe Valley Greenbelt
Project Manager: Jason Burke
Status: Planning
Schedule: 2020

The Greenbelt project includes multi-benefit stormwater, SEZ, bicycle and pedestrian improvements and recreational amenities. Water quality and SEZ enhancements will include improving existing drainage ways and drainage systems to spread, treat, infiltrate, and retain flows from roadways, commercial areas, and other high priority, directly connected urban areas. Pedestrian and bicycle will include improving connectivity within the project area and to regional networks.
