We are continuing to actively monitor the status of the proposed Canyon Springs development with the Town of Truckee and the developer. See the post below for the current status.
We will post any updates or information about important meetings as soon as we know. Please leave any comments or suggestions you might have.
From the Town of Truckee, January 20, 2016
“The applicant for the Canyon Springs project continues to work on a modified project proposal in response to public comment and Planning Commission questions raised during the November 16-17 (2015) Planning Commission hearing. A future hearing date has not been determined and will not be scheduled until the revised project has been submitted and reviewed by Town staff to determine if any additional information is needed. At the point when the revised project is ready for re-consideration by the Planning Commission, additional public noticing (mailed, newspaper, e-notification, Town website, etc.) will be provided to ensure those interested in attending and/or providing comments on a revised Canyon Springs project will have access to the most current information.
Questions were raised at the November (2015) Planning Commission hearing about a previous Holdrege & Kull geotechnical report cited in the Canyon Springs Final Environmental Impact Report. A copy of this report titled, “Geotechnical Engineering Report for Tahoe Boca” dated September 12, 2003 can be found here.”
We understand the project owner(s) will be submitting a revised Tentative Map in the near future. A new EIR contract would need to be approved by Town Council, wherein public comment would be accepted. SOSG will be preparing for the next steps in this process.
The Canyon Springs 12/1/2015 Hearing has been canceled, Future Hearing expected January 2016. Click here for Town update.

Join us next Thursday, November 5, from 6 to 7:30 pm, at the Glenshire Clubhouse for a community meeting with SOS Glenshire and MAP in advance of the final Planning Commission hearings. We will be providing updates and coordinating our canvassing and speaking campaigns, and we appreciate community involvement!
The final hearing on Canyon Springs is Monday, November 16 and Tuesday, November 17, 6pm Truckee Town Hall, and we need your presence to help us tell the Truckee Planning Commission why Canyon Springs, as proposed, is inconsistent with the Truckee General Plan, why it’s bad for the environment and wildlife, and why it’s wrong for Truckee. Whether you’re willing to speak or not, we need your support at the meeting. Please plan to join us there on both nights!
This isn’t isn’t just about Glenshire — it’s about our vision for the Town of Truckee, and whether we want to set a precedent for sprawl, traffic, fire hazards and irreversible wildlife impacts. Please help us spread the word to all Truckee residents!
SOSG & MAP do not support the Canyon Springs 185+ unit project as proposed. It will bring unavoidable & detrimental environmental impacts to the Truckee region.
The Final EIR Hearing is expected to be November 16th & 17th, 6pm at Town Hall.
SOSG & MAP will host a Community Update & Action Meeting November 5th, 6pm at the Glenshire Clubhouse.
