North Lake Tahoe Parking Expanded and Enhanced

Featured story

Placer County continues to expand and enhance parking management within North Lake Tahoe

In June, Palisades Tahoe announced its new Reserve N Ski reservation-based parking program for weekends and holidays in both Olympic Valley and Alpine Meadows. The program aims to improve the overall experience for visitors and residents during busy ski days by reducing the number of cars on the road and encouraging guests to carpool and use alternative transportation options. This week, our board added to regional efforts to alleviate traffic congestion by approving a parking management agreement with Palisades Tahoe to provide back-up enforcement of the resort’s new parking program.

Man leads a line of horses carrying Christmas trees out of the Tahoe National Forest in 1939

On Dec. 15, 1932, the readers of the Lincoln News Messenger were informed that there would be no community Christmas tree that year. The article went on to say that “the money it would cost can be better spent securing things that are more necessary to the comfort of the needy at this time, hence the funds will be diverted and used in the purchasing of food and Christmas goodies which will be distributed on Christmas eve [sic] to the needy families of the community.”

The New York Stock Market crash on Oct. 29, 1929, provided the final tipping point for a foundering world economy and led to the Great Depression. In December of that year, the City of Lincoln got its first community Christmas tree. But by 1932, the effects of the Depression had become too great, and the community leaders felt a Christmas tree was too extravagant an expense.

The following year, however, they reversed course and decided a Christmas tree might help assuage the gloom, and so the community Christmas tree returned in 1933.
