CRYSTAL BAY, Nev. and#8212; Next week holds three open houses for people interested in learning about the Boulder Bay redevelopment project and giving input on its plans.

The open houses will take place from 5 to 7 p.m., Monday, June 8, at the North Tahoe Events Center in Kings Beach; 5 to 7 p.m., Tuesday, June 9, at the Boulder Bay offices in Crystal Bay; and 5 to 7 p.m., Wednesday, June 10, at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center in Incline Village.

The proposed resort development on the Tahoe Biltmore and former Tahoe Mariner sites in Crystal Bay has held three other community meetings since November 2007.

In mid-May, developers released changes to the proposed resort including the elimination of timeshare units and more than 125,000 square foot reduction in total floor area.

The new total number of units for the resort totals 359, but that number does not include the 14 units or 38 bedrooms of on-site affordable housing, Boulder Bay project manager Brian Helm said.

The reductions were based on feedback from the community and from the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, Helm said.

The project’s environmental impact study is scheduled to be released for public viewing in mid-July, Helm said.
