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.
To review the Canyon Springs Revised Draft Environmental Impact Report (RDEIR) Chapters go to the Town of Truckee’s website. Public comments regarding the adequacy of the revised chapters should be submitted to the Town of Truckee Planning Division to Denyelle Nishimori, email; firstname.lastname@example.org
The public comment period will close on Wednesday November 12th at 5pm. MAP urges concerned community members to review the revised chapters and submit written comments. For more information or questions regarding please contact SOS Glenshire at email@example.com.
DEIR is now available online for review and comment. Deadline for comment is March 1st. You can also check out a hard copy or purchase CD of DEIR at the Town of Truckee, or read it at the Truckee Library. SOSG has made CD’s (organized by chapters) – please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like us to get a CD to you.
