Final Action Expected December 12 on Regional Plan Udpate

Stateline, NV— Closing out a multi-year process to update the Lake Tahoe Regional Plan, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency Governing Board is scheduled to vote Wednesday, December 12 on the updated plan and supportive environmental documents at Harvey’s Resort convention center in Stateline, NV. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. with brief statements by state leaders whose leadership resulted in key compromises allowing the plan to move forward, according to TRPA officials.

The Bi-State Compact agency adopted the Lake Tahoe Regional Plan in 1987, which set development caps for Lake Tahoe and established regulations aimed at restoring Lake Tahoe’s world-famous clarity, among many other environmental targets. The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) committed to updating the plan this year with a priority focus on accelerating water quality restoration by supporting environmental redevelopment opportunities, improving permitting processes and encouraging more walkable communities and increased transportation options. Also up for consideration Wednesday is an update to the Regional Transportation Plan, which is called Mobility 2035.
