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.
Should the Board approve the plan update, then a framework for environmental improvement would be in place that allows Lake Tahoe communities to move forward on their vision for revitalization while keeping development caps in place, according to Marchetta.
The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency cooperatively leads the effort to preserve, restore and enhance the unique natural and human environment of the Lake Tahoe Region now and in the future. For more information, call Jeff Cowen at 589-5278 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
