History of Skyland
Skyland, located on the South East coast of Lake Tahoe, was developed in the early 1960s. There are 245 homes in the subdivision. The formation of the Skyland General Improvement District (GID) was petitioned by the Skyland property owners under Nevada Law NRS 318. On the 6th day of April, 1964 the Board of Commissioners approved Douglas County Ordinance 135 that created the Skyland General Improvement District.
The GID’s purpose, as stated in the ordinance, is for paving and plowing of streets, maintaining curbs, gutters, sidewalks, maintain storm runoff vaults and the fence along highway 50, provide street lighting, water and sewer improvements.
The original developer “The Stockton Corp.” willed that the use of Skyland beach is for all Skyland property owners. The Stockton Corp also issued CC & R s; these expired in the year 2000. Since the year 2000 all development and housing codes, parking, etc. are controlled by Douglas County and the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA).
