New proposal submitted for Peoria-Sunnyside site
A new conditional use permit application and a request for a Downtown Specific Plan amendment were submitted April 18 to the Town of Truckee for the property located at the southwest junction of Interstate 80 and Highway 267.
The permit requests approval to construct a 120-room highway-oriented hotel, two 5,000 square-foot restaurant pads, three retail buildings totaling 26,000 square feet with upstairs loft areas to be used as residential space, and a 16,000 square-foot office building.
The permit application also proposes 329 parking spaces, encroachment improvements and an access road. As required by the Downtown Specific Plan, the access road must be constructed as an extension of Jibboom Street and Jibboom Street must provide a connection through to Highway 267.
The application also requests a zoning modification to the southwestern 2.39 acres from Visitor Lodging to Medium Density Residential. This zoning modification would allow a maximum density of 17 residential units per acre. No specific development proposal has been submitted for the 2.39-acre parcel.
The applicant, Peoria-Sunnyside, LLC, has named the project Truckee’s Visitor/Lodging Center, and will submit as the project’s environmental document the Downtown Specific Plan’s Environmental Impact Report. Archeological, soils and biological reports completed on the site for a previously proposed project will also be used in the Negative Declaration.
Requests for further information and comments related to the environmental documentation or conditions of approval must be submitted to the town’s Community Development Department Planning Division no later than Thursday, May 11.
