This informational session is intended to help builders, property owners, fee payers, and other stakeholders understand changes proposed for the start of the 2019 building season. “We really want to reach out to the building community and share these changes before projects are submitted for permits” said North Tahoe Fire Chief Michael Schwartz. “We believe easy access and transparency are hallmarks of good government and will ensure better understanding and compliance.” CATT Government Affairs Manager Pat Davison added, “We are glad to partner with NTFPD on this info-sharing workshop. Builders and others involved in land use and construction appreciate the heads up about potential changes. This is a great way to start 2019.”
