How the TRPA is streamlining permitting in Lake Tahoe
The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency is making strides to make permits around the lake easier to obtain. While their paramount mission is to protect the environmental quality of Lake Tahoe, they are also responsible for issuing permits for most construction projects within the Tahoe Basin. As a part of Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s 2012 plan, streamlining the permitting process in Tahoe was one of the core principles. They have now implemented a more aggressive mode of accomplishing this goal for community members, developers, and business owners.
In South Lake Tahoe, El Dorado County is now assisting the TRPA in achieving these goals. According to this Tahoe Daily Tribune article from January, “Community Development Services Department will now offer a one-stop-shop for customers requiring TRPA permits for certain commercial and multi-family projects located in the county.” The objective of this new resource is to save permit-seekers time and money.
