Who is the Best in the Basin?

The nomination period has opened for the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s 2007 Best in the Basin competition, which annually recognizes the best designed, planned and implemented projects in the Tahoe Basin that also stand out as environmentally compatible.

Whether they are new homes, home modifications, commercial rebuilds, shorezone projects, erosion control projects or defensible space plans, the work showcased by the Best in the Basin program exemplifies the creativity and collaboration required for development to co-exist with a recovering lake.

For 17 years, the TRPA has used the Best in the Basin program to recognize those property owners, contractors, architects and planners who rise to the occasion as examples for others to follow.

The nomination period for this year ends Friday, Oct. 12. Categories are: new residential, residential modification, rebuild projects, new commercial, commercial modification, commercial rebuild, shorezone, shoreland, green building, research, public service, erosion control, restoration, BMP retrofit and defensible space. To qualify, projects must be complete or near completion.

For an entry form and information about last year’s winners, go to http://www.trpa.org .

Winners will be selected by a panel of area professionals in the fields of architecture, landscaping, planning, engineering, and resource management. For additional information on the Best in the Basin Awards, contact Dennis Oliver at (775) 589-5235.
