Tahoe Updates Regional Plan; Environmentalists Not Excited

Developing land around Lake Tahoe should be slightly less burdensome in the future now that the 25-year old regional plan has been modified to allow investment in outdated properties that were previously considered to be releasing too much dirt and nutrients into the lake.
