With a goal of building a multi-use recreation facility on it, an Incline Village board has decided to buy a five-acre site in the Lake Tahoe Basin for one million dollars.
The Incline Village General Improvement District board voted
three-to-two this week to purchase the parcel near scenic Incline
Lake north of Lake Tahoe.
The property originally was part of a 770-acre parcel that was
eyed for a public buyout by the U-S Forest Service. But the
five-acre site was offered for sale separately to the Incline
Village board last fall.
In February, Nevada Senator John Ensign announced the 75
million dollar purchase of the roughly 770-acre site - including
Incline Lake - thanks to money from the sales of government
property in southern Nevada.
Proponents of the latest purchase say the five-acre site would
benefit various recreational users as well as local schoolchildren.
