NRS 278.780
Legislative findings and declaration.

The Legislature finds and declares that:


The waters of Lake Tahoe and other resources of the Lake Tahoe region are threatened with deterioration or degeneration, which may endanger the natural beauty and economic productivity of the region.


By virtue of the special conditions and circumstances of the natural ecology, developmental pattern, population distribution and human needs in the Lake Tahoe region, the region is experiencing problems of resource use and deficiencies of environmental control.


There is a need to maintain an equilibrium between the region’s natural endowment and its artificially created environment, and to preserve the scenic beauty and recreational opportunities of the region.


For the purpose of enhancing the efficiency and governmental effectiveness of the region, it is imperative that there be established an areawide planning agency with power to exercise effective environmental controls and to perform other essential functions.


It is not the intent of NRS 278.780 to 278.828, inclusive, to rezone areas subject to the provisions of those sections.


Every application referred to the agency created by NRS 278.780 to 278.828, inclusive, must be considered individually as to its effect on the facilities necessary for people and traffic and whether or not the granting of such application would exceed the capacity of the environment to tolerate development in those particular areas under the jurisdiction of the agency.
