History of Cave Rock Estates
The historic Cave Rock, a 360-foot high by 800-foot wide remnant of an ancient volcano, sits on the southeastern shore of Lake Tahoe in western Nevada. The Washoe people, whose ancestral lands encompass the Lake Tahoe Basin, call Cave Rock “Dao w ga” or “the lake.”
On October 6, 1975, the Board of Supervisors of Douglas County adopted Ordinance No. CR-2, creating the Cave Rock Estates General Improvement District (CREGID). The District is charged with the responsibility to improve and maintain the roads, curbs gutter, sidewalks, storm drains, water system, and street lighting within the Cave Rock Estates development. The District is governed by an elected five member board, which meets as needed (at least twice a year) to conduct the business of the District.
