Washoe Co. moving forward with Incline community plan
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Later this month, Washoe County will ask residents for more ideas to help shape the next Tahoe Area Plan Master Plan.
The community’s comments are essential to shape how Incline Village and Crystal Bay should plan for the next 20 years, said Eric Young, a planner in the county’s department of community services.
An open house scheduled the afternoon of April 24 at the Incline Village Library will show residents where county planners are in the process, Young said.
“It’s a check-in, so to speak, to make sure we’re not heading in the wrong direction,” Young said. “It’s to say, this is what we think we’ve heard … and it’s your chance to tell us if we’re off base.”
The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s recently approved Regional Plan Update cleared the way for Washoe County and other Tahoe governing agencies to update master plans.
Through several community planning efforts over the past decade in Incline Village — including Independent Incline, 2020 Vision, Pathways and the Incline Vision effort back in 2005 — Young said the county feels it has a solid understanding of what the community wants.
Based on feedback this month, the county should have a draft plan available for review by this summer at various board meetings and other community meetings, Young said, before a final plan is developed for eventual approval.
For more information on the update process, contact county planner Eva Krause at 775-328-3796 or Young at 775-328-3613.
“We’re on the cusp,” Young said. “Eva and I are very sensitive to the community up there — this is both of our priories. We don’t have any other work on our desk that’s above this.”
