TRPA to release regional plan on Wednesday and Thursday
October 22, 2012
The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency will release the final draft of the regional plan update and associated documents during the two-day Governing Board meeting taking place on Wednesday at the North Tahoe Event Center in Kings Beach, and Thursday at Harvey’s Lake Tahoe in Stateline.
Both meetings will include a rollout of the final 2011 Threshold Evaluation Report and amendments, the Lake Tahoe Regional Plan Updated Goals and Policies and Final Code of Ordinances, as well as the final regional plan environmental documents. Also presented will be the final Mobility 2035 Regional Transportation Plan and Sustainable Communities Strategy. Public comment will be taken at the start and end of both meetings which are scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. A copy of the Governing Board agenda and packet are available at trpa.org.
The two-day Governing Board meeting taking place on Nov. 14 at the Chateau in Incline, and Nov. 15 at Harvey’s Lake Tahoe will focus on taking public comment on the final draft Regional Plan Update documents presented in October. The Governing Board is scheduled to take action on the Regional Plan Update at their December 12 meeting taking place at Harvey’s Lake Tahoe in Stateline.
All Regional Plan Update final documents will be available on the TRPA website beginning October 24. TRPA staff will also have USB thumb drives available for purchase at the October Governing Board meetings that contain these documents for a cost of $15 each. Payments should be made in cash.
“The Oct. 24 and 25 rollout of the updated regional plan is the culmination of the best available science coupled with eight years of public input starting with the Pathway Forum and the place-based planning process,” said TRPA Executive Director, Joanne S. Marchetta. “TRPA would like to thank the thousands of citizens who took the time to let their vision of a sustainable future for the Lake Tahoe Basin be known,” she said. “We are now poised to deliver that vision.”
