Land Coverage and Development Rights
The California Tahoe Conservancy’s Land Bank Program acquires and restores property. For a small portion of the Conservancy’s restored properties, the parcel’s related land coverage and development rights may then be sold and transferred to eligible buyers. The program helps landowners meet Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) permitting requirements to build in appropriate areas.
Example: Auto wrecking yard in meadow. Acquired, removed, and restored.
