The mission of the California Tahoe Conservancy (Conservancy) is to lead California’s efforts to restore and enhance the extraordinary natural and recreational resources of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Through its Tahoe Livable Communities (TLC) Program, the Conservancy seeks to acquire, sell, lease, or exchange land and development rights to meet State, regional, local area plan, and sustainable community goals.
At the Conservancy, we know the importance of building an organization that is as diverse as the communities we serve. We believe in maintaining a workplace where employees from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and lived experiences can thrive. Working together, our team is positioned to better improve the lives of all Californians.
The Conservancy launched the TLC Program in 2014 to focus Conservancy’s land acquisition, transfers, and development rights programs to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, restore environmentally sensitive land, and revitalize the Lake Tahoe Basin’s urbanized areas. The goals of the TLC program are to: 1) Acquire aging developed properties, restore the environmentally sensitive lands, and retire or transfer the development rights to town centers; 2) Sell, lease, or exchange vacant Conservancy land in town centers to support housing, multi-modal transportation, and economic development; and 3) Acquire the remaining private properties in several of Lake Tahoe’s roadless subdivisions to remove the threat of development.
The TLC Supervisor works under the direction of the Conservancy Director of Lands to oversee and manage the TLC Program. The incumbent:
- Supervises and directs the work of staff engaged in land acquisitions, exchanges, sales, and land banking of development rights;
- Collaborates with both internal and external stakeholders on Conservancy land and development rights policies and strategies to achieve equitable and resilient communities and landscapes.
- Provides leadership in integrating Conservancy program priorities with various State and regional agencies to achieve sustainable communities and climate resiliency goals.
