  • Visitors to public parks and outdoor recreation area support 238,500 jobs in the California economy
  • The impact of a multi-state softball tournament generated about $500,000 in revenues for Lodi and San Joaquin County
  • Since 1983, jobs with the travel industry have grown 38%, compared to 21% overall for California industries
  • Travel and tourism will soon become the leading industry in Southern California, and is a thriving industry throughout the state. Local “day-trips” are on the rise in some areas while two-week “traveling vacations” are on the decline

Property Value Benefit

Property owners near a park vicinity are more likely to experience enhanced property values and improved neighborhood settings

  • Property values increase due to park and recreation services effort to preserve waterfront and lands and to offer convenient educational and recreational opportunities, attractive views and wildlife enhancement * The presence of parks encourages real estate development and expanding tax base * In a 1993 study conducted in Greeley, Colorado, home located in close proximity to quality recreation facilities sold for 8%-10% higher than homes not located near facilities
  • Land within a one-mile corridor of the American River Parkway in Sacramento has additional property value, because of its location, of an estimated $150 million per year
  • In Boise, Idaho, over $10 million of investment into the 9.5-mile Boise River Greenbelt has improved appraised property values within the Greenbelt to over $200 million. Property values of underdeveloped land are $26,000 - $34,000 per acre near the greenbelt as opposed to $10,000 - $17,000 not near the greenbelt!

Resident Discount Policy

Each resident annually pays property taxes of which an average of $160 is used to subsidize parks and recreation services. Since residents of the District are already paying property taxes, they receive a discount. Non-residents will then pay slightly more for services since they are not making a contribution to the property tax base.

Most, if not all, park and recreation providers in the Lake Tahoe basin and throughout the country have a similar fee schedule. The new fees apply to all programs and services except afterschool programs, camping, the daily boat ramp launch fee and boat ramp season passes.

If you have any questions or need additional information, feel free to contact the Tahoe City PUD Recreation Department at your convenience by calling (530) 583-3440.
