The Regional Planning Governing Board (RPGB)
The RPGB has ten members. The Washoe County Commission appoints three members (two of which must reside in or represent the unincorporated area), the Reno City Council appoints four members and the Sparks City Council appoints three members. The RPGB elects a Chairman from among its members to a one-year term; the chair rotates among the three jurisdictions. The current Chair is a representative from Washoe County, to be followed in 2013, by a representative from the City of Sparks and a representative from the City of Reno in 2014.
In January, 2009, the Regional Planning Governing Board (RPGB) invited the Washoe County School District Board of Trustees to nominate a Board member to participate as an ex-officio member on the RPGB. This liaison opportunity is intended to enhance the coordination of activities between the school district and other land-use planning activities in the region.
The Regional Planning Governing Board is responsible for regional planning policy issues and adopts the Regional Plan based on recommendations put forward by the Regional Planning Commission.
