<br /> <br />March 4, 2013 <br /> <br />Attention: Denyelle Nishimori, Senior Planner <br />10183 Truckee Airport Rd. <br />Truckee, CA 96161 <br />dnishimori@townoftruckee.com <br /> <br />To Whom It May Concern, <br /> <br />We have lived in Glenshire since 1999 and are proud to call it our home. This letter is to share our <br />comments and concerns regarding the adequacy of the DEIR for the proposed Canyon Springs housing <br />development. <br />We have a young child and one of us works at various schools in Truckee, thus commuting on Glenshire <br />Drive is frequent. The traffic that already exists can be overwhelming and in winter conditions Glenshire <br />Dr. can be ominous at best. The current DEIR did not take into consideration the cumulative impacts on <br />Glenshire Dr. and the DPR from Olympic Heights and the downtown core. The traffic studies need to <br />examine the collective impact for the entire region. <br />In addition, like most that live in Truckee, we spend most of our free time in the outdoors. We enjoy the <br />hiking trails in Glenshire as they are beautiful, easy to access, and the home of native wildlife. We are <br />often in awe of the wildlife that we encounter. We believe that we do not have sufficient evidence that <br />the areas adjacent to the development sites as well as the proposed development itself would not cause <br />destruction and intrusion to the sensitive wildlife that currently reside in this area. As it is known, this <br />project blocks a known deer migration corridor. The deer study data needs to be incorporated into DEIR, <br />as current analysis is not sufficient and updated. <br /> <br />Thank you for allowing me to address my concerns regarding the DEIR for Canyon Springs. Please feel <br />free to contact us with questions regarding our comments and concerns addressing the adequacy of the <br />DEIR. <br /> <br />Sincerely, <br />Dana and Paul Adams <br />Dana and Paul Adams <br />14927 Donnington Lane <br />Truckee, Ca 96161 <br />pndadams@sbcglobal.net
