As you might infer I live in Glenshire and have <br />so for 14 years. I have lived in the Tahoe Truckee area for 30 years. I have watched bad projects <br />come and go. I have watched both good building happen and bad building happen. Bad building has <br />been happening in the Truckee area for many years now. Not all of it is bad but much of it is. I <br />continue to see building for the sake of keeping people employed, which is good, but not for anything <br />else but line the pockets of the town. The town has way too many vacant lots and scantly developed <br />subdivisions now. Allowing developers to tear up the open space in our town simply because you are <br />afraid of saying no is getting old. We do not need another subdivision.We have plenty of vacant ones <br />now. The open space we have is rapidly disappearing in the name of developement. Canyon Springs <br />is a bad idea for this town. It is 8 miles from town and not going to do anything for the people that are <br />looking for affordable housing, such as it is. The type of people that need that housing need to be <br />closer to town with access that is not on a 9% grade. So where does that leave us. With 185 lots that <br />were developed and another bankrupt developer. I think most of the local residents are getting very <br />tired of this. That particular piece of land should not be developed as a subdivision. Did anyone <br />remind the town that it is a deer migration corridor? As if we don't have enough dead deer on <br />Glenshire drive now. A skateboard park would make more sense.
