Glenshire to research development proposal

The Glenshire Homeowners Association is closely monitoring the progress of a proposal to build 250 homes just east of its subdivision.

“We are concerned and gathering information,” said Glenshire Homeowners Association General Manager Jeff Stevens. “We’re trying to get a date where the developer can provide a presentation.”

The proposal, named TahoeBoca, is still in its early stages, according to the Planning Commission. Action on the project is still six months to a year away, said Community Development Director Tony Lashbrook.

The development is planned for a 288-acre space adjacent to the Glenshire development. Once approved by the Nevada County Board of Supervisors as the Tahoe Boca Estates project in 1990, the development plan for the area has changed considerably since, and once again is winding its way through the approval process.

Stevens noted that while the homeowners association has not yet taken a strong position on the proposed development, there are several areas of concern for Glenshire residents.

Stevens listed these categories:

— Increased traffic to the area on roads that in places are already congested

— Access to the subdivision, currently planned as two roads

— The need for a new environmental impact report on an area where wetlands exist

— The relocation of open space in the area

“Our job is to gather as much information as possible, and take a position that is to the overall benefit of the community,” he said.

The homeowners association will try to get information out to its members before the proposal moves ahead, Stevens said.
