STATELINE, Nev. – The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency met on Wednesday, Apr. 24 to discuss an amendment to the Washoe County Tahoe Area Plan. 

The amendment seeks to include “Schools – Kindergarten through Secondary” as a special use within the Wood Creek Regulatory Zone for parcels of three acres or more. This proposal, presented by Washoe County, has undergone TRPA’s staff review, aligning with the TRPA regional plan. It does not signify approval but rather a request for a special use permit. 

Courtney Weiche, a senior planner from Washoe County, contributed to the discussion, highlighting that over 200 public comments were received over the past year, showing both support and opposition.
