TAHOE REGIONAL PLANNING AGENCY


JOB TITLE: Legal Intern, Summer 2018

FLSA STATUS: Non-Exempt

SALARY RANGE: $16.00 per hour


THE TAHOE REGIONAL PLANNING AGENCY

The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA)—created in 1969 by a Compact between the states of Nevada and California, then ratified by the U.S. Congress—protects and restores the environment of Lake Tahoe. The Agency is the nation’s first and oldest bi-state regional environmental authority, a one of a kind organization - not purely federal, state, or local, but a unique hybrid organization - and a vital avenue working at the crossroad of private and public interests to protect and restore Lake Tahoe, its environment, and its communities for generations to come.

The Bi-State Agency is charged with regional planning, development and redevelopment oversight, implementation of environmental protections, and restoration programs for the Region. TRPA has both planning authority and the land use regulatory authority to back up, implement, and enforce regional-scale plans. Agency executives, managers, and employees are responsible to lead programs that weave together science, policy, public and private financial investment, and collaborative partnerships as foundations critical to Lake Tahoe’s long-term preservation. Agency staff functions at the complex intersection of environmental protection, land use planning, and real estate development in a highly sensitive environment.
