Qualified Exempt Projects


A project which changes the exterior appearance of your home and does not add coverage to the property is a qualified exempt project. Examples include a second story addition or enclosing a deck for a living area.

Plan Check Review

These types of projects must go through the plan check review process with the city's Building Department to determine code compliance and structural integrity. To learn more about the qualified exempt requirements and download the application, please visit the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency website.


For questions or more information about the qualified exempt process, please contact the Building Division at (530) 542-6010.
