Stateline, Nevada – To better serve the public, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) is making a planner available one day a week in Incline Village, Nevada. The planner will accept and review permit applications to ensure that projects in the Washoe County portion of the Lake Tahoe Basin comply with TRPA regulations.

Under a new permitting arrangement with Washoe County, TRPA Associate Planner Bridget Cornell will work out of the Incline Village Community Center at 855 Alder Ave. each Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., closed for lunch from noon to 1 p.m. Cornell can be reached by phone at (775) 589-5218 or by email at

Washoe County will continue to issue building permits and provide the standard project review required under International Building Codes. Under this new permitting arrangement, people working on projects in the Washoe County portion of the Lake Tahoe Basin must now submit applications directly to TRPA for review to ensure projects meet the bi-state agency’s regulations for residential additions and modifications, new construction of single-family and multi-family residential structures, commercial projects, and qualified-exempt activities.

“TRPA staff are ready to help people in the Washoe County portion of the Tahoe Basin with the application and review of their projects in a timely fashion, and to answer any questions people may have about TRPA’s permit application and review processes. If you have any questions or need any help with your permit application, please do not hesitate to contact us,” said Wendy Jepson, current planning division manager at TRPA.

The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency leads the cooperative effort to preserve, restore, and enhance the unique natural and human environment of the Lake Tahoe Region, while improving local communities, and people’s interactions with our irreplaceable environment.
