SR 89/Fanny Bridge Community Revitalization Project Final EIR/EIS

Nevada Stateline to Stateline Bikeway North Demonstration Project

NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT

The Notice of Availability, Comment, and Public Hearings for the Joint TRPA and NEPA Environmental Assessment for the Stateline-to-Stateline Bikeway, North Demonstration Project in Incline Village, NV has been released.  The comment period starts March 5, 2014 and concludes on April 11, 2014.

View the Notice

View the Draft Environmental Assessment

The Federal Highway Administration and TRPA have directed the preparation of a joint Environmental Assessment (EA) pursuant to National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) regulations, TRPA’s Compact, and Chapter 3 of the TRPA Code of Ordinances for the Nevada Stateline-to-Stateline Bikeway, North Demonstration Project (Project). The proposed Project is an approximately three mile section of the longer Nevada Stateline-to-Stateline Bikeway Project, which is a proposal to build a premier, shared-used path on the east side of Lake Tahoe between the Nevada state line in Crystal Bay on the north and the casino corridor in Stateline, Nevada on the south. The Project is proposed to be a shared use path connecting Incline Village and Sand Harbor in Washoe County, Nevada on the east shore of Lake Tahoe.

The North Demonstration Project is a high priority section of the larger Nevada Stateline-to-Stateline Bikeway, which encompasses an approximately 30-mile corridor between the Nevada state line in Crystal Bay and the casino core in Stateline, Nevada. This notice addresses only the North Demonstration Project. The first section of the overall project, the South Demonstration Project, between the Stateline casino core and Round Hill Pines Beach, has been approved and construction of this segment is scheduled for the summer of 2012. The alignment between the South and North Demonstration Projects and the alignment between Incline Village and Crystal Bay are undergoing additional alignment planning; future implementation phases will be subject to their own environmental review and are not being evaluated as part of this effort, except in the cumulative context.

More detailed information and maps of the proposed project can be accessed on the project website at www.tahoetransportation.org.

Lake Tahoe Passenger Ferry Project

Notice of Intent (NOI) to Prepare a NEPA Draft EIS and Notice of Preparation (NOP) of a CEQA Draft EIR and TRPA Draft EIS for the Lake Tahoe Passenger Ferry Project
The Tahoe Transportation District (TTD) is proposing the development of an all-season, passenger ferry service between the north shore and south shores of Lake Tahoe. The proposed ferry service would improve mobility within the Lake Tahoe Region, reduce vehicle miles traveled by automobile, and move the Region toward achievement of the regional water quality, air, and GHG goals.

Community Enhancement Program

As a part of the 2012 Regional Plan Update, the Community Enhancement Program expired. The update includes policies supporting the transfer of development bonus units. No new Community Enhancement Program applications are being accepted.

The (Community Enhancement Program) is bringing more rapid environmental gains for the Lake Tahoe Basin through projects which implement environmental improvements, enhance quality of life for residents, improve the visitor experience and contribute to the long-term economic vitality of the Region. The CEP is demonstrating what Lake Tahoe communities can look and feel like over the next 20 years if substantial improvements to our commercial core areas can be encouraged.

Of the original nine CEP proposals, seven projects are still in the program and one, Boulder Bay, has already been permitted. See the links above for more details on each of the projects.

The focus of the CEP is to encourage revitalization projects in downtown and recreation areas that demonstrate substantial environmental, as well as social and economic benefits. The program provides incentives for mixed-use development projects on existing disturbed or underutilized sites. The CEP is competitive and is designed to encourage the “best” projects that will demonstrate the desires of the community captured in the Regional Vision. The Community Enhancement Program is a collaboration between the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, the community, and local government partners. The program provides a means to demonstrate implementation of the Regional Vision through the implementation of selective projects.

The CEP builds upon (Special Programs) criteria in the TRPA Code of Ordinances and incorporates elements of the Regional Vision obtained through the Placed Based planning process. These elements further clarify the goals of Special Projects and are aimed to assist in moving the Lake Tahoe Basin toward attainment of environmental thresholds.

The program is front-loaded to shape projects early in the design stages to ensure they meet the criteria, rather than react to projects that are completely designed before submittal. It is hoped that these projects, in turn, will be catalysts for further upgrade of Basin community centers, transit nodes and neighborhood centers. This is not a code avoidance program and all proposals designated CEP projects must pass TRPA’s thorough environmental review and compliance processes

(News Release July 27, 2007)
(TRPA Editorial September 28, 2007)
(TRPA Editorial November 20, 2007)
(News Release November 2, 2007)

TRPA, local jurisdictions and the property owners hosted community workshops in 2007 to gather additional input to ensure that any projects chosen to participate in the program are in alignment with the community’s vision. The CEP is designed to be as open, transparent, and community-based as possible.

The TRPA Governing Board approved staff recommendations to designate all nine pre-applications as CEP projects in 2008. As part of this approval, the project concepts were each assigned future commodities in the form of development rights reserved by TRPA for special projects. All projects have to apply to TRPA and undertake environmental review. In some cases, TRPA staff may recommend modifications to the TRPA Code of Ordinances for a CEP project to be approved. These modifications must be approved prior to project approval through a separate action by the Governing Board.

As a part of the 2012 Regional Plan Update, the Community Enhancement Program expired. The update includes policies supporting the transfer of development bonus units. No new Community Enhancement Program applications are being accepted.

Boulder Bay

Boulder Bay CEP Crystal Bay, NV

TRPA BOARD APPROVES BOULDER BAY PROJECT

At its April 2011 meeting, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency Governing Board voted to approve the Boulder Bay Community Enhancement Project. Four years in the planning, the project will replace the aging Tahoe Biltmore Casino in Crystal Bay, NV with an eco-friendly, mixed-use resort that will significantly reduce stormwater pollution and vehicle emissions associated with the site.

“With science showing us that we can reverse the decline of Lake Tahoe’s clarity by encouraging environmental redevelopment of our town centers, the cost of doing nothing is just too high for the Lake,” TRPA Director Joanne Marchetta said. “Redevelopment projects like Boulder Bay are an important part of the public-private effort to restore Lake Tahoe.”

Once complete, the Boulder Bay site will include a mix of whole ownership condos, hotel units, affordable housing, a small casino, a health and wellness spa, retail and dining space, pedestrian and transit improvements, and a 4-acre community park. In addition, the project plans to pursue LEED certification, a global standard for green building techniques.

Beach Club Resort

Beach Club Resort 2008

The Beach Club on Lake Tahoe project was approved by the TRPA Governing Board in August, 2008. The project applicant, Beach Club, Inc., proposed to redevelop the existing Tahoe Shores Mobile Home Park located at the end Kahle Drive in Stateline, Nevada. The DEIS evaluated the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed project (Alternative A), two separate development alternatives (Alternatives B and C), and two variations on the no-project alternative (Alternatives D and E).

PREPARATIONS TO FINALIZE THE DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL STUDY OF THE UPPER TRUCKEE RIVER RESTORATION AND GOLF COURSE RECONFIGURATION PROJECT.

Over 700 comments were received during the public comment period for the Draft EIR/EIS/EIS. The comments are being reviewed by California State Parks, the Bureau of Reclamation and Tahoe Regional Planning Agency. The final document is expected to be released in early fall 2011. The document is an environmental impact report/environmental impact statement/environmental impact statement(EIR/EIS/EIS). The three titles are required for compliance with CEQA, NEPA, and TRPA review. Comments on the document were submitted between August and November, 2010.

California State Parks (State Parks) and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) are pursuing a restoration project along the reach of the Upper Truckee River that extends from its upstream entry point at the southern boundary of Washoe Meadows State Park to just west of U.S. Highway 50 where the river exits Lake Valley State Recreation Area. The project is being planned and proposed by State Parks. TRPA is managing the EIS process and helping gather public input as the process moves along.

Numerous public planning workshops, site tours and information sessions were held between 2007 to 2010 to present the project in detail to interested stakeholders and to gather input on the recreation uses in the parks.

The primary purpose of the project is to restore natural geomorphic and ecological processes along this reach of river and to reduce the river’s suspended sediment discharge to Lake Tahoe. The proposed restoration project would require reconfiguration of the Lake Tahoe Golf Course to allow for restoration of the river, reduce the area of stream environment zone occupied by the golf course, and allow for establishment of a buffer area between the golf course and the river. Alternatives to the proposed project are being considered and studied in the EIR/EIS/EIS.

A more detailed description of the proposed project is contained in the following documents:
