PC-3 public workshop June 6

The Town of Truckee will be holding a public workshop Wednesday, June 6 to discuss Planned Community 3 (PC-3) and its proposed development.

The workshop will be held in Town Council chambers at Town Hall from 4 to 6 p.m.

Planned Community 3, owned by the Joerger Family Trust, is located next to the Truckee Tahoe Airport off of Highway 267, and is bisected by the 267 Bypass currently under construction.

The focus of the workshop will be to discuss a proposed specific plan for PC-3.

A specific plan is a planning document that will determine the types and intensities of land uses that will be permitted on the property and how these land uses will be developed.

The Town General Plan requires a specific plan for this property because of the amount of development that may occur on the property and its important location at the southern end of the Highway 267 Bypass that will create a key gateway to the Town of Truckee.

The Joerger Family Trust has prepared a summary plan for their PC-3 property, which consists of 100 acres.

The summary plan proposes a mixed use development for the property that includes general, highway, and service commercial uses; multi-family residential uses; industrial uses and open spaces.

The summary plan includes:

— A land use plan that identifies the location, types, and intensities of land uses on the property including open spaces.

— A preliminary circulation plan and typical road sections that show the alignment of streets in the property and a cross-section of the improvements proposed for these streets.

— A preliminary utility plan that shows connections to existing utility lines in the area.

— Architectural character images that show the design of buildings.

— A matrix that discusses the consistency of the development with the General Plan policies found in the Land Use Element.

The specific plan will go through an extensive public review and public hearing process including the preparation of an environmental impact report, and must ultimately be approved by the Town Council.

Those who cannot attend the workshop may pick up a summary plan at the Town Community Development Department.
