I am writing to express my strong objection to the proposed transfer of property known as the Dollar Creek Unit in Tahoe City from the California Tahoe Conservancy to the California State Park for annexation into Burton Creek State Park. This area is a valuable asset to our community in its current state as publicly owned open space. It is valued as open space by residents and visitors alike. Many visitors come in the summer for the spectacular mountain biking, and in the winter for the amazing cross-country skiing.  

My husband and I are homeowners in the Highlands subdivision in Tahoe City. One of the reasons we bought a home in this neighborhood was that we had access to an extensive trail system where we could hike and cross-country ski with our dogs without having to get in the car and add to the traffic problem on the North Shore that seems to get worse with every passing year. We feel that it will be a real loss to the community if this property is transferred to the state park system and the burden of restrictions and regulations of a state park is added to what has been a well-used, public open space for decades.
