No. The proposed Martis Valley West Parcel Specific Plan and associated Area Plan would not rely on a “transfer of development rights” from outside the Basin. Rather, the Area Plan would provide for development within the Basin, pursuant to Tahoe Regional Planning Agency Code of Regulations Chapter 13 (Area Plans) and Chapter 51 (Transfer of Development). Transfer of development for the 112.8 acres in the Basin would comply with Chapter 51 and would occur entirely within the Basin. In other words, units proposed for the 112.8 acres within the Basin would have to be transferred from other locations within the Basin.
For the Specific Plan as a whole, there is no formal transfer of units within Placer County. The discussion of retirement or “transfer” of development potential in Placer County is practical. That is, the East Parcel would be rezoned to non-developable designations, and the West Parcel would be rezoned to allow development. Because the East Parcel is zoned to allow up to 1,360 units, and the proposed rezone of the West Parcel would allow only 760 units, there would be a net reduction (600 units) in residential development potential within the Martis Valley Community Plan in Placer County.
