Subject: June Resort At Tahoe Update 2022
Dear Crystal Bay, Incline Village, and Tahoe Basin Communities,
The Resort at Tahoe commercial project, formally named “Boulder Bay” is a commercial project within Crystal Bay, Nevada. Very generally, the project is located at the current Biltmore location. The address is 5 State Route 28 and includes multiple surrounding parcels.
Construction during the 2022 Tahoe Basin construction season is limited to issued building permits including: the demolition of structures, site cleanup, demolition preparation, and asbestos abatement. Under review by Washoe County is a resubmission of Wassou connector road limited to “Upper Wassou.” The applicant notified Washoe County that they intend to apply for remaining regional and local approvals to redevelop the site during 2022 and 2023.
Washoe County partners with multiple regional and local agencies to facilitate the review and approval process. Currently, the Regional Tahoe Planning Agency (TRPA) Project Approval Permit remains valid. Applicant has submitted the fourth plan revisions to reflect grading and construction of “Upper Wassou” on June 21, 2022. No other applications are submitted to TRPA at this time. If you are interested in this process, please contact the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, Paul Nielsen, TRPA Special Projects Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Property activity during Summer 2022 is expected to include public safety support and field work to support traffic studies. With the 2022 SR 28 road construction, EKN indicated that they will initiate demolition after following summer months to limit traffic impacts. The site is being utilized by Washoe County Sheriff, SWAT, and regional fire department for training. In addition, required traffic studies and field work is scheduled for July 2022 to meet current and future permitting requirements.
Please note: the Biltmore property is closed to the public and is an active construction site, which means it should not be accessed without authorization. The site is monitored by security personnel, as well as the Sheriff’s department. The Crystal Bay Motel is currently being used to accommodate local workforce housing.
As with any mixed-use commercial project, regional and local application, permitting, licensure, and community integration is complex. Please feel free to contact email@example.com for information regarding the review and approval process. For specific project information, please contact the project applicant. If you would like to register directly with the developer to receive project updates and to be informed about upcoming events, please register at revitalizetahoebiltmore.com.
We invite you to contact Washoe County if this brief update on the Resort at Tahoe commercial project does not answer your regional and local permitting questions. Our intent is to be transparent in the local review process. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
