1 <br />Laura Dabe <br />Subject:FW: Beach Club Marina <br />  <br />From: Suzan Lynn Knisley [] <br />Sent: Tuesday, September 10, 2013 2:43 PM <br />To: Jenna Endres <br />Subject: Re: Beach Club Marina <br /> <br />Jenna, <br /> <br />Thank you for taking the time to read my email. The Marina improvements in the General PLan were originally <br />approved on a much smaller scale to address certain areas. <br /> <br />The much larger scale and scope of the project currently proposed was generated by staff and the architect they <br />hired, and not by the Board or by members. The current expanded size of the project was presented to the <br />Board as a means of saving money by combining the needs of today with eventual improvements that might or <br />could be under consideration by a future Board in a number of years, by doing it all at once. <br /> <br /> The vast majority of our members have overwhelmingly given the Board feedback that they come to Tahoe <br />Donner to get away from city life and developed land, and to enjoy the out of doors in it's natural state. <br /> <br /> Because 75% of our members live elsewhere, they do not have the time to attend Board meetings or a good <br />venue to speak out. Therefore when there is a loud and clear message by a large majority of members that they <br />value open space above all our other amenities in a survey, it worries me that the kind of development <br />proposed by staff at the Marina will not conform to that atmosphere or meet the needs of the majority of our <br />members. <br /> <br />I think the open grassy area is more important to the members than another restaurant area. <br /> <br />Thank you also for forwarding the email to the Town Council <br /> <br />Suzy Knisley <br /> <br /> <br />916 201 5735 <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />On Sep 10, 2013, at 10:07 AM, Jenna Endres wrote: <br /> <br />Good morning, <br />
