INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The second of two Tahoe Regional Planning Agency public workshops to help orient customers to the reorganization of TRPA’s Code of Ordinances is Thursday, Feb. 2, from 6-7 p.m. at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit in Incline Village.
Thursday’s meeting was originally scheduled to end at 7:30 p.m., but TRPA on Tuesday announced the shorter time due to the sure-to-be well-attended Fireside Chat at 7 p.m. at Sierra Nevada College, featuring Incline resident Aaron Katz.
The new code, according to TRPA, goes into effect on March 1, 2012. The workshop is designed to help property owners considering home or building improvement projects, along with planners, consultants, contractors, and land-use attorneys
Topics to be covered 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.
“This first phase update of the TRPA Code of Ordinances is better organized, easier to follow, more efficient to administer and predictable to use,” said Paul Nielsen, the TRPA planner leading up the code clean-up. “These changes are the product of significant stakeholder input. They will have no negative environmental impacts nor will they change how projects are reviewed and permitted.”
Phase two of the code clean-up will include more fundamental updates to TRPA’s Code of Ordinances planned as part of the Regional Plan Update, scheduled for final action by the TRPA Governing Board at the end of 2012. The public can the view the updated Code of Ordinances going into effect in March at trpa.org.
