Lake Tahoe Mooring Permits Open Dec 1

Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s Mooring Permitting and Registration Update

Beginning December 1, entries for new moorings, such as buoys and boat lifts, can be submitted to the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency by eligible lakefront owners for the second lottery drawing allowed under the Lake Tahoe Shoreline Plan. A mooring lottery will be conducted annually until all allocations are distributed.

Entries for the lottery can be submitted anytime from December 1, 2021 through March 1, 2022 and all submissions received before the deadline will be considered equally. The lottery drawing is scheduled to take place April 1, 2022.

Applicants must meet certain criteria to enter, however the drawing is only for an allocation. If an allocation is received from the April drawing, a complete permit application will be required.

Only littoral shoreline properties, those that adjoin or abut the highwater line of Lake Tahoe, are eligible to apply.

Apply here starting on December 1.
