TAHOE CITY, Calif. — The Placer County Board of Supervisors will continue its deliberation of the Martis Valley West Specific Plan on Tuesday at 9:40 a.m. in the County Administrative Center located in Auburn.

The board initially heard the proposal on Sept. 13 at the North Tahoe Event Center in Kings Beach, where it tentatively approved the project in a 4-1 decision. Jennifer Montgomery (District 5-Tahoe) was opposed.

Now, the plan is up for a final decision, and residents of the Tahoe-Truckee region have a couple of different viewing options if they don’t or can’t drive to Auburn.

The hearing will be streamed on the county’s website for viewers who want to watch at home or at work. Those wishing to participate in public comment may visit the Placer County Administrative Office at 775 North Lake Blvd. Tahoe City, where staff there will stream the meeting for the public to view.

“We offer a way to participate in public comment for Tahoe folks that’s a lot more convenient that the drive to Auburn,” Placer County spokesperson DeDe Cordell said in an email.

To be clear, there is no guarantee public comment will be allowed during the continuation of the Martis Valley West hearing on Tuesday — that will be decided by the board chair (Robert Weygandt-District 2) as the meeting begins.

But, for concerned residents who can’t drive to Auburn and hope to get a word in if allowed, or for those who just have slow Internet connections, the Tahoe City Administrative Office is an option.

For those planning on attending the meeting in Auburn, the Board of Supervisors meets at 175 Fulweiler Ave. The meeting begins at 9 a.m. on Oct. 11, and the Martis Valley West plan is scheduled at 9:40 a.m.
