Supervisors Convene at Squaw Valley for Tahoe Issues
Placer County, CA -- Under warm and partly cloudy July Sierra Nevada skies, the Placer Board of Supervisors held a regularly scheduled two-day meeting in Squaw Valley.
The Board typically meets in the county's high country quarterly and tries to bundle as many Tahoe-area issues as it can into these meeting agendas.
On Monday, the Board heard a presentation on the project to expand the Village at Squaw Valley. Standing around a scale architectural model of the Village, the board and local residents and interested parties heard an update from Placer County Planning Services staff on the project. Also speaking about the project were Squaw President and CEO, Andy Wirth, Chevis Hosea, Squaw Vice President of Development, and Mike Geary, Squaw Valley Public Service District general manager, who addressed the project's water supply analysis.
As the Village at Squaw project item was a workshop, there was no official public comment. However the Board invited those in attendance to ask questions of county staff, the developer and the service district. Afterwards, the group moved to High Camp at 8,200 feet of elevation to experience the recently expanded 1960 Winter Olympic display.
On Tuesday, the Board convened its meeting at the Resort at Squaw Creek. The day's agenda included:
* A public hearing on two appeals from a Placer County Planning Commission decision;
* An update by the Community Development Resource Agency regarding the Tahoe Basin Community Plan Update project;
* Receipt of a status report on the Tahoe Basin Investment Incentives Business Plan;
* Approval of a two-year contract with the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association to promote tourism and provide guidance on infrastructure and transportation projects;
* Hearing a presentation on a concept to build a Squaw Valley Olympic and Winter Sports Museum;
* Approval of a contract to build trails from highway turnouts to the Truckee River along Highway 89; and
* Approve expenditures for improvements on the county's Hidden Falls Regional Park.
After Tuesday's meeting was adjourned, the board, staff and members of the public traveled to Tahoe City to tour the newly improved County offices in the Customs House building in Tahoe City where multiple county agencies have Tahoe offices. The improvements include a Tahoe office for Fifth District Supervisor Jennifer Montgomery, County Executive Officer David Boesch and Tahoe CEO manager Jennifer Merchant.
