A successful round of proposals has just happened for Andy Wirth and company. The man in charge as CEO of the famous resort – Squaw Valley Ski – has demonstrated how redeveloping land in Lake Tahoe could benefit everyone. That’s why the Planning Commission of Placer County just gave his proposal their approval this fall. And now it will move to the next level up: the County Board of Supervisors. If they agree to it, then everything will go forward.
According to CBS and Powder, Andy Wirth has mentioned that he is pleased with how the discussions have gone, with everyone staying civil and focused on the big issues. He has mentioned that a large issue facing the community is that of transit and traffic. He wants to put a proposal in front of voters this fall that will pay for better mass transit for everyone. This way, the traffic would be lessened and it would be easier to get around. He is doing this even though, as he made clear, the resort has nothing to do with the traffic.
One potential challenge is that the board of Placer County is already looking at other proposals for land. And they can only review so many at a time. But Wirth is confident they will do the right thing.
