Historical Note

Nevada’s legislature created the Truckee Meadows Regional Planning Agency (TMRPA) in 1989 to foster coordination among the three local governments: the cities of Reno and Sparks and Washoe County. TMRPA is comprised of the Regional Planning Governing Board (RPGB), the Regional Planning Commission (RPC) and the TMRPA’s Executive Director and staff members.

The Truckee Meadows Regional Planning Agency (TMRPA) oral history project was initiated by the TMRPA in 2018 as part of its 2019 Regional Plan update. As part of this update, the TMRPA staff wished to document the origins and development of the TMRPA, and invited participants in this initial oral history project on the basis of their ability to relay their first-hand experiences and knowledge related to those topics.
