New online permitting options are available for mooring permits at Lake Tahoe. The Lake Tahoe Shoreline Plan approved by the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency in 2018 requires lakefront property owners, homeowners’ associations, and marinas to register all existing boat moorings, including buoys, boatlifts, and boat slips.
Property owners can now permit and register existing moorings online at laketahoeinfo.org/moorings. The registration period will remain open until September 30. Property owners who are eligible to permit and register an existing mooring in 2019 include:
- Those who have a mooring permitted by TRPA;
- have previously applied for a TRPA mooring permit; or
- have a mooring with a state or federal permit or lease;
- And those who have a mooring with no permit or lease but proof of its existence prior to 1972.
