The chat is the first of two evening talks on how Marchetta is transitioning the TRPA from its once-needed focus on stopping runaway growth and parcel-by-parcel regulation, to one focused on encouraging 21st century environmentalism, according to the statement.
This new direction involves public/private partnerships to revitalize Tahoe's built environment, attain environmental goals and transition to more permitting by local governments.
and#8220;Today's challenge is not the issue of growth, but the existing outdated infrastructure polluting Lake Tahoe and contributing to clarity loss,and#8221; Marchetta said in the statement. and#8220;One emphasis of the Regional Plan Update is on fixing the existing built environment. This means upgrading facilities to install both state-of-the-art water quality treatments as well as other forms of up-to-date conservation measures, while at the same time revitalizing our communities.and#8221;
The public is invited to join Marchetta at the discussion.
