The District’s Boundaries
Figure 1 features a map of the Fallen Leaf Lake Community Services District boundaries and the geographical features of the area within and surrounding it. The district boundaries are boot shaped and surround the oval-shaped Fallen Leaf Lake, which runs north-south. Fallen Leaf Lake is located south of Lake Tahoe. The district is surrounded on the east and west by mountain ridges. It is accessible from California State Route 89 by means of Fallen Leaf Road. This road serves as the primary access road into the district and runs along the east side of the lake. Although homeowners have a code to unlock it, a gate across this road is closed during the winter season. The district office, the fire station, and the Stanford Sierra Conference Center are all located on the southern tip of the lake. The Fallen Leaf Lake campground and visitor parking are located on the northern tip of the lake and are not included within the district’s boundaries.
