Stateline, Nevada – The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) is accepting project nominations for its annual Best in Basin awards program now through Tuesday, April 2.

The program has five award categories: Building and general construction projects; water quality restoration and erosion control projects; forest health and defensible space projects; public and Environmental Improvement Program projects; and sustainability actions and projects.

Projects must have been completed in 2018 to be nominated and eligible for a Best in Basin award.
