TRPA code clean-up public workshops

Staff Reports

The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency is hosting two public workshops to help orient customers to the reorganization of TRPA’s Code of Ordinances, which will go into effect on March 1.

These workshops are designed to help property owners considering home or building improvement projects, along with planners, consultants, contractors, and land-use attorneys. The workshops will take place as follows:

TRPA Conference Room

6-7:30 p.m. Jan 26

Main Office, 128 Market Street

Stateline, NV-Lower Kingsbury Grade

Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center

948 Incline Way

Incline Village, NV

6-7:30 p.m. Feb. 2.

Topics to be covered in the workshops include comparisons of the old and newly reorganized code, tips on how to quickly find what you need, and updates on the second phase substantive code changes in progress.

According to Paul Nielsen, the TRPA Planner leading up the code clean-up, “This first phase update of the TRPA Code of Ordinances is better organized, easier to follow, more efficient to administer and predictable to use,” he said. “These changes are the product of significant stakeholder input,” Nielsen explained. “They will have no negative environmental impacts nor will they change how projects are reviewed and permitted.”

Phase 2 of the Code Clean-up will include more fundamental updates to TRPA’s Code of Ordinances planned as part of the Regional Plan Update, which is scheduled for final action by the TRPA Governing Board at the end of 2012.
