FOR FULL PRESS RELEASE
The Truckee Meadows Regional Planning Agency (TMRPA) held a free public workshop focused on helping the Truckee Meadows region develop planning solutions to grow in ways that benefit the local community and support regional economic development strategies.
The draft Industrial Land Needs Analysis (ILNA) report is now available for review. We will be accepting comments through November 11th for incorporation into the final report which will be presented to the Regional Planning Governing Board on December 12th for their consideration and possible acceptance.
We look forward to receiving your comments and would prefer you either send them by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call our office at (775) 321-8385. If you choose to send your comments via email, please indicate specific page numbers when applicable.
The ILNA is a collaborative effort of the Truckee Meadows Regional Planning Agency (TMRPA), Regional Transportation Commission (RTC), Western Regional Water Commission (WRWC) and Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN), supporting regional economic development efforts.
Over the past two years, much effort at the state and local level has been directed toward strengthening and broadening the State's economy. As part of this effort, EDAWN has been working to advance economic vitality and has adopted a Three-Year Strategic Plan identifying target industries that will bring job growth to Northern Nevada.
To proactively support regional economic development efforts, TMRPA staff undertook the industrial land needs analysis, in conjunction with ECONorthwest and the local jurisdictions, as well as RTC, WRWC and EDAWN. The focus of this study is on the current supply of industrial land, the needs of targeted industries, and the demand for future industrial land in the region over the next 20 years, as well as the relationship of existing industrially zoned land to infrastructure, services and resource requirements, thereby allowing for a better understanding of how long-range planning efforts can support economic development.
On October 3, 2013 the Truckee Meadows Regional Planning Agency (TMRPA) was recognized by the business community and government officials at the second annual Greater Reno-Sparks-Tahoe "Existing Industry Awards" reception hosted by the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN).
TMRPA was honored with the “Community Partner Award”. The award distinguishes public sector community partners demonstrating innovative programs and active engagement as a community partner to EDAWN in a way that supports business attraction, retention, or entrepreneurial development.
