The City of South Lake Tahoe now has a new vision statement to guide all of their decisions: “We will reflect the national treasure in which we live.”
They came to Tahoe Production House to create a video to reflect this new vision statement as well as other outlined goals. We put together a photo/video motion graphics video with text and music to illustrate this for them. They plan to run this video on their Social Media, Newsletters, and City TV Channel.
During a two-day long retreat and strategic planning session, the City Council and staff leaders met to discuss their strategies over the next two years, something they do right after every Council election.
City leaders will now get other agencies on the South Shore to join them in this mission, as well as the community. The vision will be reflected on City materials, a new logo, and be the “guiding principle in decision making.”
Discussed were the budget priorities for the next five year which will include a sales tax increase to cover replacement and maintenance of roads, public and private partnerships, buy up blighted hotels to create new housing opportunities, and increase enforcement of the City’s sign ordinance.
Also on the City’s list to accomplish:
Implement a road rehabilitation program;
Be ready to start the Recreation Center within one year and have it built in three;
Complete the Sierra Boulevard Street Project;
Extend sidewalks and lights;
Improve the exterior facade at the airport/City Hall.
The goals for the next year for the City Council and staff: Secure financing for roads, resolve the 56-acre property in the middle of town, fixing Highway 50, start the recreation center, improve local agency collaboration and work on housing through collaborative efforts.
Their five year goals: Secure an outdoor concert venue, complete 56-acre project, elimination of SRO (Single Room Occupancy) units and create new housing, and fiber networking in conjunction with streetwork.
