A total of 269.8 acres of the Martis Valley West Parcel Specific Plan (MVWPSP) area are within the Tahoe Basin: 130 acres of the East Parcel and 139.8 acres of the West Parcel. Of the West Parcel acreage within the Basin, 112.8 acres are proposed to be rezoned as Resort Recreation and are the subject of the proposed Area Plan. The remaining 27 acres of the West Parcel and 130 acres of the East Parcel within the Basin would retain existing zoning. A map of the MVWPSP area that identifies lands within the Tahoe Basin is provided on Page 5 in the September 23rd Presentation (PDF).

The Martis Valley West Parcel Specific Plan (MVWPSP) site includes two parcels-the West Parcel and the East Parcel-which total approximately 7,568 acres. Both parcels are undeveloped and forested lands, located on either side of State Route 267 between the Town of Truckee and the north shore of Lake Tahoe within the Martis Valley Community Plan (MVCP) in Placer County.
The approximately 1,192-acre West Parcel is located southeast of the Northstar California Resort, and uphill and east of Sawmill Reservoir. The proposed MVWPSP would allow for development on approximately 775 acres of the West Parcel.
The approximately 6,376-acre East Parcel includes 670 acres designated for residential and commercial development by the Martis Valley Community Plan. The Specific Plan would transfer development potential from the East Parcel to the West Parcel (760 of the 1,360 allowable units), retire development rights for 600 units, and convey the entire 6,376- acre East Parcel to conservation groups for permanent open space preservation via either fee simple or a conservation easement.
