Placer County’s draft environmental report is out: This Sunday, it’s time to get informed, get involved, and get a t-shirt

One of several 100′  buildings in KSL’s plans

What: Community meeting regarding Placer County’s Draft Environmental Impact Report on KSL’s development proposal.

When: Sunday May 24th at 4:00 pm.

Where:  Squaw Valley Public Service District

305 Squaw Valley Rd

Olympic Valley, CA 96146

On Monday, Placer County released the Draft Environmental Impact Report KSL’s proposed development in Squaw Valley.  And there’s lots to talk about including the County’s confirmation of a long list of “significant and unavoidable” impacts–to local and regional traffic, peace and quiet, scenic views, greenhouse gas emissions, starry skies, and Olympic history–and the importance of the public comment period scheduled to run until July 16.

We hope you can join us, and the Friends of Squaw Valley this Sunday May 24th, 4:00 pm at the Squaw Valley Public Service District building 305 Squaw Valley Rd, Olympic Valley, CA 96146.

There will be brief presentations on the study, the latest version of KSL’s proposal, where the project stands in the application process, and an important tutorial on how you can most effectively make your voice heard through the public comment process.


$10 suggested donation per shirt/hat

And, as always there will be opportunities to ask questions of Sierra Watch and others who have been following this process closely from day one.

It will also be your first opportunity to get your hands on brand new Keep Squaw True hats and T-shirts, or pick up some stickers and a drink koozie.

Sierra Watch is committed to using every tool, from citizen participation to legal action, in order to ensure that these important, lasting land-use decisions are made for the right reasons, with the best information, and with the timeless values of the Sierra at heart.  Squaw Valley − and the entire North Tahoe region − deserve no less.

Hope to see you there.
