Squaw Valley advisory council expected to vote on redevelopment
OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. — The Village at Squaw Valley Specific Plan will be the sole topic of a special meeting of the Squaw Valley Municipal Advisory Council on Saturday, May 14.
The plan proposes to amend the Squaw Valley general plan and land use ordinance in order to develop an all-season resort community.
Following the May 2015 release of the draft Environmental Impact Report, project applicant Squaw Valley Real Estate made changes to its proposed plan.
The final EIR, released earlier this month, outlines mainly building design modifications, including reducing maximum building heights, increasing building separation in the Village Core and Village Neighborhood, and increasing building setbacks in the East Parcel.
The special Saturday meeting, which begins at 3 p.m., will be held in the Mountain Room of the Plumpjack Squaw Valley Inn, 1920 Squaw Valley Road in Olympic Valley.
According to Placer County, meetings of the Squaw Valley MAC (which acts only as an advisory board to the county) are usually held the first Thursday of every month, but this meeting will be held Saturday by request of the MAC and community members to accommodate as many people as possible.

The Squaw Valley MAC is expected to vote on a recommendation on the Village at Squaw Valley proposal at Saturday’s meeting, which would be forwarded to the Placer County Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors.
A Placer County Planning Commission public hearing on the project is slated for late May, with final action anticipated before the county’s Board of Supervisors this summer, according to previous reports.
