COMMUNITY WORKSHOPS SCHEDULED FOR TAHOE REGIONAL PLAN UPDATE
Lake Tahoe, Stateline , NV – Two community workshops have been scheduled this month to bring the public up to speed on the emerging Lake Tahoe Regional Plan Update, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency announced today.
The workshops, fashioned after Place-Based Planning visioning sessions held in 2006 and 2007, are an opportunity for residents to see how their input has been incorporated into the Update, which will be the master planning document for the Tahoe Basin over the next two decades.
The final document, scheduled for adoption next year, will serve as a blueprint for accelerating the attainment of environmental thresholds in the Tahoe Basin while also addressing how to revitalize communities without compromising their unique character.
“These workshops are an opportunity for those who have committed time and energy to this process to see how their vision is being transformed into an action plan for Lake Tahoe ,” said John Singlaub, TRPA Executive Director. “We are looking forward to reengaging the public and showing them their fingerprints on this plan, which is so important to the Lake and the communities that surround it.”
The first workshop is scheduled for 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, October 28, at The Chateau, 955 Fairway Blvd. , Incline Village , NV . The second will be held 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday, October 29, at the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency offices, 128 Market Street , Stateline NV . To give community members from around the Tahoe Basin the best opportunity to participate, the agenda for both workshops is identical.
Participants will be given the latest details about the Plan Update and alternatives to be considered as part of an environmental review that will culminate in final consideration next year.
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 additional information, call Dennis Oliver at 775-589-5235 , or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
