In most of my comments I am <br />unable to reference specific pages or DEIR sections. <br />The following are comments and concerns I have gathered regarding the adequacy of the <br />DEIR for the proposed Canyon Springs housing development: <br />Traffic: Access for development/construction will require use of Martis Peak <br />Rd/Hirschdale Rd/Interstate 80 hwy. DEIR does not consider impact of I -80 closures, <br />inclement weather or accidents. Furthermore, studies were not done to address snow <br />periods. These periods need to be analyzed paying attention to intersections such as the <br />Glenshire Drive /White Horse/Martis Peak Rd.s example have nlvehiclespin that i situation <br />crest of the hill, losing traction and becoming <br />which generally requires calling for a tow service and the road is blocked. <br />If used as a primary access Edinburg Dr would receive large volumes of traffic and use <br />impacts and which the road is not designed for. Were the impacts of parking on <br />Edinburg Dr addressed along with pedestrian traffic? <br />DEIR did not take into consideration of cumulative impacts on Glenshire Dr PR from <br />Olympic Heights and downtown core. Traffic studies need to consider cumulative <br />impacts for the region not just a reference to an existing EIR. <br />ugh a <br />Land Use and General Plan: Goal COS -9 Link open space as able to <br />well- connected network of open space and trails. (p ) From the map I w <br />access the trails within the area are fragmented and do not connect to t other access tf r <br />Town of Truckee trail network, nor is there consideration to gain rig of way <br />a trail connecting to Martis Valley. <br />new <br />Interesting comment, Land Ue the maximum Plan: <br />development so as to presery mount of desired types of op n space, as <br />
