Canyon Springs Important Update 09.09.2015

SOSG & MAP do not support the Canyon Springs 185+ unit project as proposed.

Canyon Springs will bring unavoidable & detrimental environmental impacts to the Truckee region.

  • Truckee General Plan, Land Use Chart 7 defines this type of development as SPRAWL!
  • Sets a precedent for future sprawl and growth inducing impacts on adjacent Teel property in Unincorporated Nevada County!
  • Canyon Springs proposes 8 phases, 20 years of construction traffic & 2,500+ vehicle trips per day!
  • If approved the Loyalton-Truckee Deer herd and migration corridor will be negatively impacted forever! This is an unavoidable impact under CEQA that cannot be mitigated to a less than significant finding.
  • The environmental analysis relies on outdated and inaccurate studies for traffic, biology and water quality data review!
  • The environmental analysis had NO discussion of impacts to Glenshire Lake!

There were many great comment letters received on the Revised Draft Environmental Impact Report in November 2014 – a total of 69!   A HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE that submitted a comment letter, wrote letters to the newspapers and contributed to our legal/expert costs for this RDEIR.  Our hired experts noted many significant errors and omissions in this RDEIR.
Next Steps: A Final EIR will incorporate response to public comments on the DEIR and RDEIR.  The Planning Commission Hearing to vote on the approval of the project will occur within days of the FEIR release, expected January 2015.   According to Town staff, the Town normally gives 10 days from FEIR Release to the FEIR Hearing; however; Town staff stated the Town would like to give 20-30 days for Canyon Springs project.  SOSG will again be hiring experts, quickly, to review and assist in response to the FEIR.  Public attendance at this hearing is vital – Please stay tuned!  Happy Holidays!
