Tahoe Basin Needs Saving From TRPA

April 22, 2023

A recent opinion article in the Nevada Independent is being shared due to the community’s interest and concerns over the activities of the TRPA. The article states “A new report earlier this month from the Tahoe Environmental Research Center extolled improvement in lake clarity, but the most dangerous invasive threat today remains real estate investors, developers and government officials hungry to exploit the lake’s environment.

There are dozens of new large developments in the works, many high-density luxury projects aimed at affluent visitors. All will move thousands of truckloads of dirt on narrow, rural roads and further strain Tahoe’s limited infrastructure and compromise air and lake quality.

TRPA, which began with a priority on resource conservation, has succumbed to the greed prophesied in 1964. TRPA is now mocked as “Tahoe Rich People’s Association.” Monied interests eager to build out the basin, along with their attorneys, now openly court or sit on TRPA committees. One luxury project — not yet TRPA approved — has been advertising for a year.” Click here to read the entire article.
