Regional Data Sharing Model Approved at Smarter Region Summit

TMRPA to lead implementation
and development for the region.

In a first of its kind meeting last week, more than 20 elected officials representing the City of Reno, the City of Sparks, Washoe County and Washoe County School District met to discuss action and next steps in achieving the five recommendations made by the IBM Smarter Cities team in 2013. See the full press release.

The final Industrial Land Needs Analysis (ILNA) report was accepted by the Regional Planning Governing Board on December 12, 2013. 

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 aimed at identifying target industries that will bring job growth to Northern Nevada.

The vision for economic development in Northern Nevada, including the Truckee Meadows Region, calls for the creation of a vibrant, innovative, and sustainable economy, in part by achieving growth in target industries (e.g., advanced logistics, advanced manufacturing, and clean energy) that need industrial land.  This study proactively connects economic development efforts with long-range planning by identifying the characteristics of land (e.g., site size or access to infrastructure) needed by these growth industries, the current supply of industrial land and demand for industrial land over the next 20 years. 

If you have any comments or questions regarding the report, please send them by email (input@tmrpa.org) or call our office at (775) 321-8385.

The Truckee Meadows Regional Planning Agency is pleased to announce that Jonathon Donald, a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Intern at TMRPA, was recently awarded the 2013 Nevada Geographic Information Foundation (NGIF) Scholarship for his work on the Regional Economic Resources Portal.
