TRPA lists more than 60 grading extensions

Due to the abundance of grading exceptions issued this year, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency recently added a section to its Web site detailing the exceptions’ status.

Dirt moving typically is required to stop on Oct. 15 each year under TRPA regulations, but the agency issued more than 60 grading exceptions this year to allow work after the deadline. Most of the exceptions went to property owners affected by the Angora fire.

Included on the Web site ( are the names, addresses and expiration dates of those companies and individuals who were issued the exceptions.

Also on the site is a color-coded rating letting people know what work can be done on a daily basis: red for stop-work days, yellow for cautionary periods, or green when conditions are acceptable for digging, backfilling and soil disturbance.

As of Wednesday, most of the grading exceptions were listed as expired or within a week of expiring.
