North Tahoe Fire and the Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe to host building industry workshop

The North Tahoe Fire Protection District and the Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe announce they will co-host a public workshop in January designed to help building industry professionals understand proposed changes affecting the 2019 building season, according to a release.

Builders, planners, designers, consultants, real estate agents and others involved in land use and construction are invited to attend this public workshop at 4 p.m. on Jan. 9. The workshop will be held at Fire Station 51, 222 Fairway Drive, Tahoe City. Light refreshments will be served.

Workshop topics include:

Mitigation Fee Changes for North Tahoe Fire and Alpine Meadows

Plan Review Process Changes (Third Party Plan Review, Concurrent Review with Placer County)

Cost Recovery Fees

State Fire Code Requirements for Hydrants

The fire department’s Fire Flow Initiative (A Public Private Partnership)

Round Table Discussion

This session is intended to help builders, property owners, fee payers, and other stakeholders understand changes proposed for the start of the 2019 building season.

“We really want to reach out to the building community and share these changes before projects are submitted for permits,” North Tahoe Fire Chief Michael Schwartz said. “We believe easy access and transparency are hallmarks of good government and will ensure better understanding and compliance.”

Contractor association’s Government Affairs Manager Pat Davison added, “We are glad to partner with (the fire department) on this info-sharing workshop. Builders and others involved in land use and construction appreciate the heads up about potential changes. This is a great way to start 2019.”
