February 18, 2013 <br />Ms. Denyelle Nishimori <br />Senior Planner <br />Town of Truckee <br />10183 Truckee Airport Road <br />Truckee, CA <br />Re: Draft Environmental Impact Report - Canyon Springs at Truckee <br />Dear Ms. Nishimori: <br />1.-' %t cA%C t tom rrlk´┐Ż rlf 11 T.3 <br />Founded in 1990, the Truckee North Tahoe Transportation Management Association <br />(TNT/TMA) is a nonprofit mutual benefit corporation with a focus on involving employers, <br />developers, governmental entities, and others in the community in the furtherance of our <br />common interest to improve the general traffic and transportation conditions in the North Tahoe - <br />Truckee region. Our purpose is to proactively address situations associated with traffic <br />congestion and transportation systems, thereby making our region a more attractive and <br />advantageous place to reside, recreate, and conduct business. <br />The TNT/TMA has reviewed the Transportation and Traffic Chapter (4.14) of the Canyon <br />Springs DEIR. Based on our reading, we believe it is appropriate for mitigation measures in this <br />chapter to include a requirement for Canyon Springs to be a member of the TNT/TMA. This <br />requirement has been included as a mitigation measure for other major developments in the <br />Truckee North Tahoe region. Membership support allows the TMA to conduct on -going <br />transportation and transit advocacy, marketing and transit program management, coordinate <br />planning in the region, hold monthly public TMA meetings, and undertake related activities <br />throughout the year. <br />As Town staff considers comments submitted on the DEIR and next steps in the development <br />review process, please incorporate this requested mitigation measure. The amount of annual <br />membership can be selected from the TMA Schedule of Membership for New Development. <br />Proposed language for the mitigation measure is attached for your consideration. <br />
