Due to staff vacancies, application processing times may take longer than usual.  We appreciate your patience and look forward to serving you as quickly as our capacity allows.


The Nevada Land Bank, operated by the Nevada Tahoe Resource Team, assists the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency in mitigating impacts associated with development in the Tahoe Basin by acquiring and permanently retiring or transferring sensitive land coverage to less sensitive land. The Nevada Land Bank also buys and sells Land Coverage and other transferrable rights to the public.

The Nevada Land Bank’s authority falls under NRS 321.001; Chapter 355, Statutes of Nevada 1993, and a Memorandum of Understanding between the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) and the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Division of State Lands.
