Top 5 web-only stories this week
1. According to Sierra Sun’s Kevin MacMillan, “The Squaw Valley Municipal Advisory Council [recently] voted to recommend that Placer County deny proposed development plans for The Village at Squaw Valley.
“It proposes construction of up to 850 lodging units, with a maximum of 1,493 bedrooms; nearly 300,000 square feet of tourist-serving commercial space, while decommissioning about 92,000 square feet of existing commercial space; and the 90,000-square-foot Mountain Adventure Camp for indoor and outdoor recreation, among other improvements.
“The council eventually voted 4-0 to recommend Placer County deny the current proposal, indicating it would consider a proposal at roughly 50 percent of the current size — including unit count, commercial square footage and parking — should the county choose to deny the project in favor of another environmental study down the road.”
