As part of the 25th Annual Lake Tahoe Summit in August, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and members of the partnership dubbed “Team Tahoe” presented the first ever Dianne Feinstein Lake Tahoe Award. The inaugural award was bestowed upon US Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) herself for her years of tireless support for Lake Tahoe restoration initiatives. This auspicious award will be reserved going forward to recognize individuals or organizations displaying outstanding leadership and support for this national treasure. The senator’s staff received the award on her behalf.
