Truckee Meadows Regional Planning Agency – Regional Governance Models Report


The Regional Planning Governing Board (RPGB) directed Truckee Meadows Regional Planning Agency (TMRPA) staff to contract with a consultant to research different regional planning entity governance models. HEC prepared a report that explores the many types of solutions and collaborations of local governments to address regional growth issues, including economic development, to fulfill the RPGB’s desire to research different regional planning entity governance models.

The report details the current regional planning efforts in Washoe County and presents options for evolving the program of regional planning in Washoe County as it relates to the structure of the TMRPA and its affected entities. Options presented are based on research and analysis of different governance models used across the US and their applicability to Washoe County.
