STATELINE, Nev. (AP) — After nearly a decade of debate, Lake Tahoe land-use regulators are prepared to take action on a sweeping plan that will guide development for decades to come at the Sierra gem.

The bi-state Tahoe Regional Planning Agency's governing board is scheduled to vote Wednesday on the proposed Regional Plan Update for the lake straddling the California-Nevada border.

Business interests contend the plan represents a long-overdue overhaul of burdensome regulations that will jump-start Tahoe's ailing tourism economy while also protecting its environment.

The Sierra Club maintains it's a "radical plan" that will forever change Tahoe by allowing overly dense, taller urban development.

But the Reno Gazette-Journal reports the Nevada Conservation League views the plan as a compromise.

TRPA will consider the plan at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday in Stateline.
