Information on the Town’s Survey and Workshop:
The Town of Truckee is offering a virtual workshop and survey asking for community input for future land use alternatives in five focus areas in the town. Glenshire is Focus Area #5 at the end of the survey. Although all focus areas are important, if you don’t have time for the complete survey, please at least respond to this part. It includes two areas in Glenshire:
- Eastern Town Limits: Although, there is no active Canyon Springs development application, (the past proposal was withdrawn in August of 2018), the town is considering zoning this area to include 200-300 homes. The options don’t reflect the opinions of the Glenshire community. In 2015, 300 community members attended the Canyon Springs hearing requesting no development due to traffic and congestion issues, evacuation concerns, greenhouse gas emissions, the existing and active wildlife migration corridor, etc. SOSG and the community has been advocating for Open Space for many years! If you agree, choose “other” and explain your opinions!
2.In an area near the Glenshire General Store, the survey choices are: re-zoning for a mix of commercial and residential, retaining the existing zoning of commercial, or Other.
This is the chance for the community to give their opinions to the town about how much and what type of development is appropriate in the future. Please let your voice be heard!
