Letter to the Editor: Concerned about Canyon Springs

Iand#8217;m writing this letter as a concerned resident of the Martis Peak area regarding the proposed Canyon Springs development.

On June 3, a plan for the development was submitted to the Town of Truckee. The property encompasses 284 acres and the project would include 185 lots allowing a minimum of 213 dwellings.

This development as proposed could have significant adverse impacts on us and our neighbors in Olympic Heights, Glenshire/Devonshire, Cambridge Estates, The Bluffs, Juniper Hills and The Meadows related to traffic, fire safety, emergency evacuation, property values, population density and wildlife.

I encourage you to become informed and involved with protecting our area from excessive rural sprawl. Activities that you do include: 1) Request to be updated on the project by going to http://www.townoftruckee.com; then and#8220;eNotifications Sign Upand#8221; and sign up for and#8220;Planning Projectsand#8221; 2) Contact your respective Homeowner/Road Association (if your area has one) and advise them of any concerns you have, and ask that they represent your area during the DEIR process 3) Donate/volunteer/sign your support in addressing the development, and go to http://www.sosglenshire.org; then click on the and#8220;Donate/Volunteerand#8221; and and#8220;Signatures for Supportand#8221; links (important to sign now).

If we donand#8217;t express our concerns now, it wonand#8217;t help to complain later when all is said and done.

Marianne Ryan
