Through years of working with the local regulatory agencies including county building departments, planning departments, TRPA and others, Sagan Design Group has gained a thorough understanding of the complex issues encountered when designing and building homes in the Lake Tahoe Basin.  Creative solutions developed by our office during the design process facilitate agency submissions.  Utilizing the working relationships we have nurtured over the last twenty years, we are able to design creative projects efficiently and work smoothly through the permit process.

An important aspect of the development process is the due diligence performed prior to the purchase of a site.  During this process, valuable information can be reviewed to define what can be done on a property.  Entitlement issues such as land coverage, scenic, historic, environmental, utilities and buildability play a large role in the development of a project.
