Applications & Forms

In Response to COVID-19

TRPA permitting services and document requests are exclusively online and no in-person services are available until further notice. Information on these pages and in the linked documents may not reflect safety measures currently in place. 

Getting Started

TRPA’s goal is to offer customers outstanding service throughout the permit process and encourages property owners to plan for enough time to get all the necessary approvals in place before breaking ground. Our planners work to serve every applicant quickly and fairly and the agency is always looking for ways to improve call-back and permitting turn-around time.

If you are just getting started, please take a minute to review the Permit Process and Frequently Asked Questions pages. You can also call (775) 588-4547 to talk to a permit technician or schedule a call with a planner.
