NTRAC To Meet At Homewood October 13th To Consider Homewood Mountain Resort Project

The North Tahoe Regional Advisory Council will meet at Homewood Mountain Resort Ski Area on Thursday, Oct. 13 to review the resort’s development plans.

Council members will meet at 5:30 p.m. to take a tour of Homewood. The tour will be open to the public.

The regular meeting will take place at 6 p.m. in an upstairs meeting room at the resort’s North Base Area Lodge, 5145 West Lake Blvd. Access to the meeting is through the back of the lodge.

“The tour will give everyone a better understanding of existing conditions and the proposed project,” said 5th District Supervisor Jennifer Montgomery. “Holding the meeting at Homewood encourages neighbors who would be directly affected by the project to attend and let council members know their reasons for favoring or opposing the plan. I consistently hear from neighbors that meetings on projects should be held in the communities that would be impacted.”

Supervisor Montgomery represents the Tahoe Basin on the Placer County Board of Supervisors.

Commonly known as NTRAC, the advisory council’s recommendations on the Homewood project will go to the Board of Supervisors for consideration.

Supervisor Montgomery emphasized the public also will have opportunities to comment on the project when it is reviewed by other governing and advisory bodies. The project is scheduled to be reviewed by:

· The Placer County Planning Commission on Tuesday, Oct. 18, 10:05 a.m., at Granlibakken Resort, 725 Granlibakken Road, in Tahoe

· The Advisory Planning Commission of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) on Wednesday, Nov. 9, 9:30 a.m., at TRPA
Conference Rooms, 128 Market Street, in Stateline, Nevada;

· The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Nov. 15, 9 a.m., at Granlibakken; and

· The TRPA Governing Board (date and location to be announced at a later date).

The Homewood project is a joint development application with Placer County and the TRPA. The project is divided into three independent phases: the North Base area, which would include a variety of residential and resort-related improvements; the South Base area, which would include residential and Stream Environment Zone improvements; and the Mid-Mountain area, which would include a variety of ski facility and resort improvements.

The project was developed under guidelines in TRPA’s Community Enhancement Program.
