Land Coverage and Development Rights

The California Tahoe Conservancy’s Land Bank Program acquires and restores property. The property’s land coverage and development rights may be sold and transferred to eligible buyers. The program helps landowners meet Tahoe Regional Planning Agency permitting requirements to build in appropriate areas.

Example: Auto wrecking yard in meadow. Acquired, removed, and restored.
