TRPA seeks to fill Wynn’s vacancy

Andy Bourelle

The Nevada Tahoe Regional Planning Agency is in the process of filling the vacancy left by the departure of Steve Wynn.

The position to be filled is the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s Nevada at-large seat. The six other Nevada members of the TRPA – or the NTRPA – will choose the replacement.

Applicants must be Nevada residents.

The most qualified applicants will be invited for an interview by the other Nevada members.

Mike Del Grosso, planner for the Division of State Lands, said about five applications have been received. More than 20 were submitted in 1994, when Wynn was appointed to the seat.

Wynn, a Las Vegas casino executive and former Lake Tahoe property owner, announced his resignation at the TRPA’s August meeting.

Wynn, chairman of Mirage Resorts, had indicated his reasons for leaving TRPA were because of time constraints. The company’s $1.6 billion Bellagio hotel is set to open in Las Vegas in October, and the $600 million Beau Rivage is set to open in Biloxi, Miss., in February.

He served on the bistate agency’s governing board since January 1995.

Additional information can be obtained by contacting the NTRPA office in the Nevada Division of State Lands at (702) 687-4921.

If interested in applying for the TRPA position, submit a resume and statement of intent to:

Nevada Tahoe Regional Planning Agency

333 West Nye Lane, Room 118

Carson City, Nev. 89706

The deadline is Oct. 5
