The City of South Lake Tahoe is preparing for a different kind of New Year’s celebration as COVID-19 numbers rise across the State. SLTPD will be out in partnership with California Highway Patrol, California Alcohol Beverage Control, and other agencies with safety top of mind. “We will have extra officers in the Stateline area to assist with public safety needs,” said Police Chief David Stevenson, “We will be working in partnership with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, and other Nevada agencies to help coordinate any responses in the Stateline area.”

The higher the price, the lower the number of qualified buyers in this Lake Tahoe life style get away market. However, now that you can work, learn, live and play remotely, our Lake Tahoe market has been the poster child get away for our drive and fly markets.
