TRPA’s Mission statement
Mission: The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency leads the cooperative effort to preserve, restore and enhance the unique natural and human environment of the Lake Tahoe region.
The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency is dedicated to preserving the beauty of the Tahoe Basin. The Regional Plan adopted in 1987 continues to mature as the agency learns more about the impacts man has on the environment.
TRPA’s code of ordinances regulates, among other things, land use, density, rate of growth, land coverage, excavation, and scenic impacts. These regulations are designed to bring the region into conformance with the threshold standards established for water quality, air quality, soil conservation, wildlife habitat, vegetation, noise, recreation, and scenic resources.
