Village at Palisades Tahoe Specific Plan

Palisades Tahoe Development Company (formerly Squaw Valley Real Estate, LLC) requests approval of a mixed-use development that includes resort residential, commercial, and recreation uses, as well as parking and other visitor amenities, and employee housing. No changes to the project description have occurred since the project was approved in November 2016. The 85-acre main Village area proposes up to 1,493 bedrooms in up to 850 units, including a mixture of hotel, condo hotel, fractional ownership, and timeshare units. Approximately 297,733 square feet (206,211 square feet net new commercial) of commercial space is proposed for the entire plan area. The 8.8-acre East Parcel proposes employee housing for a maximum of 300 employees, off-site parking, shipping and receiving, and a small retail market. A conservation corridor is proposed for the length of Washeshu (formerly,  Squaw) Creek through the plan area to support improvement of terrestrial and aquatic habitat conditions, improved water quality and sediment management, and increased flood conveyance capacity. Other improvements include circulation improvements, bicycle facilities, a transit center, new/extended utility infrastructure, new/improvements to existing recreational facilities and amenities, and a Village open space network. The Specific Plan would be developed over an estimated 25-year buildout period.
