Canyon Springs on Hold

According to the Town of Truckee, the proposed Canyon Springs housing development project is on hold while the project applicant continues to work on a modified project proposal.  The Town states the public will be notified when the project is ready for re-consideration, and the public will be able to attend and/or provide comment.

It’s important to keep the many issues this project proposes in the public eye.  Please help us spread the word to all Truckee residents!  An effective way is to write letters to our local newspapers – an easy method would be to submit portions of your comment letters or public hearing comments.

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!

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  • The environmental analysis relies on outdated and inaccurate studies for traffic, biology and water quality data review!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!

HELP SOSG & MAP stop Sprawl! The environment, people and wildlife deserve better!
