SOS Glenshire’s mission is to protect open space in Eastern Truckee, and ensure that new developments respect the Town of Truckee’s general plan, the State of California’s environmental laws, and the local wildlife and waterways that make this region so many of us are proud to call home.
We are an all-volunteer organization made up of individuals who care about preserving our
community’s special character as well as protecting the plants and animals we share this space with.


What is your vision for Truckee ?

Please take the Town of Truckee’s Land Use Alternatives Survey by August 16 and help shape the future of Truckee!
This IS the time to let your voice be heard!

Take the survey HERE by August 16.
Glenshire and the former Canyon Springs is Focus Area #5

The survey allows for an answer of “Other” if you do not agree with the options. There are also areas to explain your ideas and concerns. Please let the town know what is important to YOU!
 Things to consider:
-The new draft land use alternatives propose more growth and development than the current Truckee 2025 General Plan (even the “low growth” alternative).
–How many more residential units can our infrastructure support, and what type of units do we need? Each town-wide alternative provides for a total of 5,000 or more dwelling units. The options do not state that the residential units will be deed restricted to the local workforce.
–How much increase in commercial and business does Truckee need? What negative impacts does an increase in commercial development cause?
–The new alternatives create an increase in the amount of greenhouse gas emissions and new vehicle miles traveled.
-Areas such as Canyon Springs, Upper McIver, and protected Open Space at “Soaring Ranch” are examples of sites being contemplated for increased density or a change of use.
As land use advocates, our goal is to reduce environmental threats and advocate for smart growth
and sustainable land use patterns, not growth for growth’s sake.

We need YOUR voice to help us advocate for an environmentally sensitive land use alternative that protects open space and preserves Truckee’s unique mountain character! Please take the survey and help shape the future of Truckee!

Take the survey HERE by August 16.
