1 <br />Laura Dabe <br />From:Jenna Endres <br />Sent:Tuesday, August 20, 2013 1:59 PM <br />To:Laura Dabe; John McLaughlin <br />Subject:FW: Tahoe Donner Marina project <br /> <br /> <br />‐‐‐‐‐Original Message‐‐‐‐‐ <br />From: Linda George [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] <br />Sent: Tuesday, August 20, 2013 9:33 AM <br />To: Jenna Endres <br />Subject: Tahoe Donner Marina project <br /> <br />To: Town of Truckee Planning Commission <br /> <br />Dear Planning Commission members, <br /> <br />We are writing to express partial support for the resubmitted plans for the Marina Facility Improvement Project. <br /> <br />We would like to see Tahoe Donner make a modest investment toward additional user space and ease of access to our <br />existing facilities. <br /> <br />We request the following further refinements to the plan: <br />‐ Minimize slope disturbance on the western edge of the property <br />‐ Reduce the number of light fixtures and limit hours of lighting on the property <br />‐ Clarify that commercial events ‐ where the facility is rented to large groups (owner or non‐owner), or non‐owner <br />events such as weddings and parties ‐ are prohibited. (Possible exception: occasional large owner gatherings such as the <br />4th of July event, perhaps limited to a specific number per year.) <br /> <br />We are particularly concerned about use of the Tahoe Donner Marina for weddings and other large events. Our <br />concerns include: disruption to neighboring homeowners and wildlife due to amplified sound, increased traffic, and <br />increased parking needs; physical impact on the property from large groups, especially if alcohol is present; and <br />divergence from the character of Donner Lake as a relatively quiet, beautiful mountain lake. <br /> <br />In addition, we have personal experience with a homeowner's association in South Lake Tahoe that has been involved in <br />a lawsuit for several years because a nearby owner was disturbed by the amplified music from on‐site weddings. The <br />lawsuit has been costly to homeowners. The Tahoe Donner Marina is best used ‐ as a family‐oriented facility for <br />enjoyment by Tahoe Donner owners and guests. <br /> <br />The size and demographics of our homeowner's association make it difficult to gauge the overall preferences of owners, <br />and the Marina project extends beyond our residential boundaries. We urge you to take small steps when approving <br />enhancements to the Marina Facility. <br /> <br />Best regards, <br /> <br />Linda & David George <br />11722 Bennett Flat Rd. <br />Truckee, CA 96161 <br />(Tahoe Donner) <br /> <br />
