The Meadows Homeowners Association <br />P.O. Box 1696 <br />Truckee, CA 96160 <br />(530) 587 -8647 <br />March 1, 2013 <br />Denyelle Nishimori <br />Town of Truckee Community Development Department <br />10183 Truckee Airport Road <br />Truckee, CA 96161 <br />Re: Canyon Springs Draft Environmental Impact Report <br />The Canyon Springs Subdivision Project is the most recent of several residential <br />developments proposed on this site. Through the years, The Meadows Association has <br />closely followed all of these proposals and has consistently expressed our concerns about <br />density and resulting impacts. Our most recent letter dated April 26, 2011 was submitted <br />for consideration in the scope of the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR). <br />In reviewing the December 2012 DEIR, we found the majority of our concerns were <br />either inadequately addressed or not addressed at all. <br />DENSITY: <br />What is the TOTAL proposed density (not only the proposed 185 lots, but also <br />multi- family housing and second dwelling units)? <br />The DEIR acknowledges that construction of second dwelling units are allowed, and <br />even includes a projection of 50% in the Traffic Study Reference: (TABLE 4.14 -6 <br />PROJECT TRIP GENERATION. Pg 4.14 -30) but does not include them for impact <br />discussion in any other areas. <br />The impact of Second Dwelling Units needs to be factored into the total density and that <br />number should have been addressed in the DEIR. <br />Reference: DEIR (pg 3 -17) <br />Secondary residential units are allowed as a matter of right in the Single - Family <br />Residential (RS) zoning district, subject to Zoning Clearance approval and provided <br />certain size, setback, and design conditions are met The requirements for second units <br />in all permitted zones state that there shall be no more than one second unit per legal <br />parcel and second units shall not be allowed on a parcel developed with two or more <br />dwellings. The construction of secondary units is not proposed as part of this project; <br />
