What: Placer County Planning Commission meeting to decide the future of Squaw Valley and North Lake Tahoe!

When: Thursday, August 11, 10:00 am

Where: North Tahoe Event Center, Kings Beach (free parking, get there early!)

RSVP: Email Field Representative Chase Schweitzer

The Specifics: The Placer County Planning Commission will hold their public hearing on whether or not to recommend approval of KSL Capital Partners’ proposed development for Squaw Valley.

During the meeting, they will vote on whether the County should put KSL’s bottom line over the  everyday quality of life in the North Lake Tahoe-Truckee Region.  It’s time to stand together and tell them that creating more gridlocked traffic and dangerous fire evacuation paths, straining local water supplies, and threatening the clarity of Lake Tahoe – even undermining regional plans to combat climate change – is a non-starter!

To be clear, KSL is still proposing:

  • A massive indoor water-park, ten stories tall and as wide as a Walmart, with room for one of the tallest indoor water slides in North America.
  • Acres of new high-rise condos and hotels that would dwarf the existing village, block mountain views, and cover the entire parking lot with buildings and garages.
  • 21 Timeshare mansions in the mouth of Shirley Canyon.
  • ~1,500 new bedrooms and more than 200,000 square feet of new commercial space.

All told, the development would be so big they would need 25 years to build it − 25 years worth of construction, noise, and traffic. The stakes couldn’t be higher, so stand with your friends and neighbors to ask the commissioners to KEEP SQUAW TRUE!
