Remove Tahoe Basin portion of Martis Valley West project

We are signing this petition to voice our opposition to the proposal by East West Partners and Sierra Pacific Industries to create a massive new development that includes 112 acres currently zoned forest/conservation inside the Tahoe Basin.  

The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s most recent Regional Plan Update proposes to protect the Basin by, among other things, concentrating new development in urban Town Centers – areas that already have services such as schools, hospitals, banks, retail stores, and so on, plus infrastructure such as roads, sewer, water, and utilities. Building on undeveloped forest land miles from any services is in direct contravention of this goal.  

The public has entrusted Placer County and the TRPA with protecting and preserving Tahoe's irreplaceable natural beauty and mountain environment. Please do not waste taxpayers’ time and money on staff review of this proposal, which would allow the wholesale destruction of a forested ridgeline and further contribute to environmental degradation in the Tahoe Basin. 

We strongly urge you to remove the 112 acre Tahoe Basin Area Plan proposed development from the Martis Valley West project.
