First off, we want to thank everyone for the incredible effort and diligence in submitting over 350 written responses to the draft Environmental Impact Report
The responses have been broken up into categories by which group or individuals submitted the responses, so it does not help a lot if you were interested in a particular subject area. The letters range from one page to over 100 pages (not including appendices) and cover a remarkable range of topics. While reading them all would be a challenge, it would be worthwhile to glance through them, since the response by the consultants and County will determine what is in the Final EIR.
On August 17, at 3:30PM Squaw Valley Ski Holdings VP, Chevis Hosea, will give his response to the recommendations made by the Design Review Committee about the proposed Village at Squaw Valley. This meeting replaces the normal “first Thursday” meeting, and it will be at the model at Base Camp (across from Alpenglow conference room and down from Uncorked). Chevis will comment on what changes, if any, SVSH might make to their Village design, including the East Parcel which looks like it has undergone a fairly major redesign. This should be a very interesting meeting, and we hope people will show up, if they can.
