The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency will be hosting a series of morning coffee sessions this summer with its executive director, John Singlaub, around Lake Tahoe to discuss pertinent issues facing various communities.

The next “Java with John” session will be at 7:45 a.m. on Friday at Not Just Java in Round Hill located at the Roundhill Shopping Center on Highway 50.

“In my first year at TRPA I’ve heard an overwhelming desire for the agency to communicate more about Lake Tahoe’s environment. I’m looking forward to sitting down with members of the community in an informal setting and hearing what concerns and ideas they have,” Singlaub wrote in a press statement.
