Redevelopment Area #2

Introduction

Douglas County Redevelopment Area #2 (RDA #2) was created in 2016 primarily to aid the county in achieving a desired strategic planning goal to “work with local partners and stakeholders to initiate the development of a year-round conference/entertainment venue at Lake Tahoe (within Douglas County).”

Gaming at Stateline had long been a main attraction for visitors and gamblers, but after the proliferation of tribal gaming and years of casino core declines in employment, property tax and gaming revenues, Stateline and the South Shore needed a different direction. In 2011 the South Shore Vision Plan recommended development of new indoor entertainment venue and conference/group meeting space (Event Center) as one of 14 principle ideas to redefine the physical attributes of the South Shore in a way that is economically sustainable and responsive to environmental conditions.

RDA #2 was created to give focused attention and financial investment in the area and to partially fund the development of the Event Center.  Goals for RDA #2 include revitalization of the Stateline area and a strengthening of the county’s economic base.

Due to increased interest in RDA #2 this webpage was created to provide the public with the history, public information, County Commission meeting materials and answers to frequently asked questions.
