Recent accomplishments in Lake Tahoe are giving a sense of what’s possible when we come together around a vision to improve our Tahoe communities and the Region’s environment. While the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) does a lot of planning, we also recognize that planning means little without implementation. Let’s review some of the on-the-ground improvements accomplished under the Lake Tahoe Regional Plan just this last year. Many of these achievements stem from the fact we have made changes to be more effective, to partner with other organizations, and to institute a science-based vision for environmental restoration efforts at Lake Tahoe.
