The final reading of the amended VHR Ordinance will be heard at the June 3rd BOCC meeting. Approximately 30 days later the amended Ordinance will take effect. On that same day, the moratorium on new VHR permits will be lifted.

The amended Ordinance caps the number of VHR permits at 600 so there will be only a few new ones issued. Anyone interested in acquiring a VHR permit should submit their application on the date the moratorium is lifted.

Also to be heard at the June 3rd meeting will be the appointment of the 5-person Advisory Board for VHRs. To qualify the person must live in Lake Tahoe. In addition, a majority of the board must not hold a VHR permit.

President Biden’s spending spree has provided Douglas County with millions of dollars under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The Board will hear a presentation on how much money the County will receive and what type of projects the money may be spent on.

Before anyone celebrates too much over this new-found revenue... the revenue is coming at the expense of the American taxpayer, and Douglas County will receive far less than many other counties around the country in states like New York and California.

Finally, there will be a discussion on the 24-month review of the development agreements between Douglas County and Meridian Business Park, Sierra Colina, Park Ranch Holdings LLC, Nevada Northwest LLC, Scotsman Dev. Corp., H&S Construction Inc., Sierra, Nevada S.W. Ent. and Virginia Ranch Development Corporation.

All the best, 

Commissioner Danny Tarkanian
