1 <br />Laura Dabe <br />Subject:FW: TD Marina Expansion Plan <br /> <br />From: Kathleen Doler [mailto:email@example.com] <br />Sent: Monday, August 12, 2013 3:55 PM <br />To: Jenna Endres <br />Subject: TD Marina Expansion Plan <br /> <br />Jenna Endres <br />Associate Planner <br />Truckee Town Hall <br />10183 Truckee Airport Road <br />Truckee CA 96161 <br /> <br />RE: Tahoe Donner Marina Beach Club Expansion Revisited <br /> <br />Dear Ms. Endres: <br /> <br />I would like to take this opportunity to comment on the proposed Tahoe Donner <br />Association (TDA) Conditional Use Permit for the Marina “improvement” Expansion <br />Project.
