One Truckee River Management Plan Roundtable, April 24, 2017

What:  In early 2015, the Nevada Land Trust (NLT) and Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB) came together with stakeholder groups, and started looking at how specific issues in and along the Truckee River were being addressed. The One Truckee River concept was born out of knowing that the many existing and successful individual programs and projects could be stronger by working together, and that traditional sectors and boundaries must be crossed to address all the issues affecting the Truckee River. The One Truckee River Management Plan is One Truckee River’s first step toward making the shared vision of a sustainable, clean and thriving Truckee River a reality. The management plan considers and recommends both short- and long-term management objectives that are coordinated across jurisdictional boundaries for a “One Truckee River” approach.

When: Monday, April 24, 2017

Time: 11:30 -1:00 p.m. (lunch and networking from 11:30-12 pm and presentation from 12-1 pm)

Where: RTC Conference Room (1105 Terminal Way, Reno – 1st Floor Conference Room)

Regional Housing Study Report: TMT Roundtable, November 17, 2016

november-17th-regional-housing-studyWhat: The Truckee Meadows Regional Planning Agency (TMRPA) has worked in partnership with ECONorthwest, to develop a Regional Housing Study. The purpose of the study is to describe the current housing stock in the region and evaluate future housing needs over the next twenty years based on demographic, socioeconomic, and economic trends that may impact the region’s future housing needs. TMRPA and ECONorthwest have created two growth scenarios, a baseline trend scenario and a compact development scenario, to identify the impacts of two different development patterns on four regional services: regional roads, regional water and wastewater infrastructure and public schools. The two growth scenarios also include variations on the timing of population and employment growth, utilizing both the Consensus Forecast growth rate, and a more accelerated growth rate over the next five years, as identified in the Economic Planning Indicators Committee (EPIC) in 2015. The presentation will provide up-to-date data about the supply of residential land and the characteristics of housing stock in the region. Information will also be presented that describes the regions likely future housing needs based on demographic, socioeconomic, and economic trends, and a comparison of land supply to the expected needs for housing types.

When: Thursday, November 17th, 2016

Time: 11:30 -1:00 p.m. (lunch* and networking from 11:30-12 p.m.and presentation from 12-1 p.m.)
