PC-2 EIR available to public
The Draft Environmental Impact Report for Truckee’s Planned Community 2 became available for public review last week.
The document has been prepared to address the potential environmental impacts of land development occurring on the 789-acre site located on both sides of Highway 89 North immediately north of Interstate 80.
Development proposed for the site includes a mix of commercial, lodging, residential, golf course and open space.
Proposed public uses include a middle school, park, roads and trail system.
Potential significant environmental impacts discussed in the EIR include land use, traffic, noise, air quality, geologic hazard, hazardous materials, biological resources, water quality, wetland resources, prehistoric and historic resources, visual resources, lighting, school facilities, domestic water resources, solid waste and affordable housing.
The draft EIR is available for review at Truckee Town Hall, the Truckee Branch Library and on the internet at http://www.pacificmunicipal.com.
A limited number of copies will be available for check out from the Truckee Library.
A reproducible original will be on file at the Copy Center, 11429 Donner Pass Road, where copies may be purchased.
A CD-ROM version of the document may be purchased for $15 from Town Hall.
Volume II, the traffic modeling calculations, is available for reference at Town Hall and the library.
