Speech “Fireside Chat”

Good evening everyone.  Thank you for coming out tonight. I am Joanne Marchetta, Executive Director of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency. It’s a pleasure to be here at Lake Tahoe Community College to speak with you about environmentalism in the 21st century and TRPA’s Regional Plan Update. While I’m not exactly fireside, I’m hoping we can still chat informally together about Lake Tahoe and our collective future as a community.
