A redevelopment project at William Kent campground on Lake Tahoe's west shore has received the go-ahead from U.S. Forest Service officials.
A decision notice and finding of no significant impact was signed Feb. 4 by Nancy J. Gibson, the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit's forest supervisor. A 45-day appeal period follows the legal notice's publication last Friday.
The proposal would add a combined Forest Service administrative building and fire station. It includes a 23-space parking area.
After completion, the 1940s fire station at Meeks Bay, the only station providing wildland fire protection for the north and west shores, would be removed.
The project also would reconfigure the 22-acre campground to include a paved two-way street with three campsite loops. Electric hookups would be added at two loops.
