August 23, 2012: Resort Project Garners Unanimous Approval By Tahoe Regional Planning Agency
On August 23rd, 2012 the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency unanimously approved the Edgewood Tahoe Resort Project. During the public comment phase, more than 54 letters were written and 35 people made public comments in favor of the project. There was no opposition.
The project is currently in design development and preliminary permitting. Preliminary utility site work is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2013. Additionally, a new pier near the existing clubhouse will be complete by the end of 2013. Major golf hole re-alignment is scheduled to begin in late summer/early fall 2014. The early projected opening for the resort is slated for early summer 2016.
The Edgewood Tahoe Resort Project will deliver an exceptional, LEED-designed lodge on the unique property of the current 235-acre Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. As proposed, the Lodge would sit adjacent to the current Edgewood Clubhouse on the 18-hole golf course. The lodge will serve as a catalyst for South Shore's reinvention while delivering tremendous water quality benefits for a 4,200 acre watershed. The best-in-class, LEED designed Lodge will include 154 hotel rooms, 40 fractional residences, a health spa, bistro style restaurant, as well as improvements to the golf course and expansion of the existing clubhouse.
The Edgewood Tahoe Resort will include significant and unprecedented water quality improvements for the Edgewood Creek watershed. The plan includes the transfer of development rights from blighted sites along the South Shore to the Resort Project. In conjunction with transfer of development resources, the Edgewood Tahoe Resort has restored many of the blighted sites and is creating a significant, cutting-edge community benefit that reduces commuter traffic, provides jobs and increases lake clarity and more.
