South Tahoe chambers vote to merge

The South Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce and the Tahoe-Douglas Chamber of Commerce voted last week to merge into a single chamber, as yet unnamed.

In November, the merged chambers and the Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority plan to move into Edgewood Village, a three-building complex at Highway 50 and Kingsbury Grade in Stateline.

The three-story, 9,700-square-foot building is owned by Edgewood Commercial Village, the architect is Lundhal and Associates and the builder is BCM Construction of Chico, Calif.

At present, the Tahoe chamber runs a visitor center in South Lake Tahoe, and in Meyers (toward Sacramento) and the Tahoe-Douglas Chamber of Commerce operates one in Stateline at Round Hill.

The Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority plans to take over management of all visitors centers, which would free up the Chamber of Commerce to work on business services, seminars, and advocacy before government agencies.
