Tahoe Regional Young Professionals are launching a new event series called Tahoe Town Hall. The inaugural event will take place in the Student Center at Lake Tahoe Community College from 6-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20.

“We wanted to create an event for everyone in the community to learn more about local issues,” said Devin Middlebrook, a Tahoe Regional Young Professionals board member. “Our goal is to provide a neutral platform where people can ask questions and have important discussions.”

The April Tahoe Town Hall event will feature a panel discussion about the creation and governance of local ordinances and how the recent Vacation Home Rental Ordinance and plastic bag ban came into existence.

Panelists include representatives from the City of South Lake Tahoe, El Dorado County and Tahoe Regional Planning Agency. They will also answer questions from the audience.

Representatives from the City of South Lake Tahoe, El Dorado County and Tahoe Regional Planning Agency will explain how jurisdictions propose local rules, how they become law and how they are enforced. The panel will also discuss the history and future of vacation rental and plastic bag regulations in the region.

A moderated question-and-answer session will follow the panel presentations. Members of the community are encouraged to ask questions about any local ordinances during this session. Anyone can submit questions online before the event at http://www.tahoetryp.org/member-benefits/civic-engagement or by using the hashtag #TahoeTownHall on Twitter or Facebook.

The Tahoe Regional Young Professionals invite all community members to attend Tahoe Town Hall and join the discussion. Future Tahoe Town Hall events will feature discussions on controversial issues in the community, local elections and the future of Lake Tahoe.
