Schaffer’s Mill is a 475-acre planned development located in Martis Valley, east of Truckee, California. AEC was retained to design and develop improvement plans for the amenity parcels consisting of a clubhouse, restaurant, cart barn and sales center, and a parking lot with 123 spaces. Site amenities included tennis courts, pool, and sport court with separated restrooms. In addition, AEC has provided Construction Documents and Final Maps including field surveys, easement descriptions, utility, roadway, and lot layout, drainage, and construction phase/staking services for golf maintenance facilities, development of 109+ townhomes and over 100 custom lots.

The project included the redevelopment of an existing lakefront residence in Carnelian Bay. Close coordination with the North Tahoe Fire Protection District, the Agate Bay Water Company, and utility providers in order to achieve compliance with fire flows, connections, and the necessary utility relocations were required for this technically challenging project.

AEC prepared the Vesting Tentative Map and Final Map for The Summit and Overlook subdivisions at Northstar-at-Tahoe. The Summit Subdivision consists of 15 custom homesite lots. Lots range in size from 20,148 square feet to 32,720 square feet. Future residences to be constructed on the proposed lots would be primarily custom homes. Roadway and most utility infrastructure for the project exist on the site, and would be extended to serve the new lots. Offsite improvements include two 500,000 gallon high welded steel water tanks, a graded tank access, a graded tank driveway, and approximately 6,950 LF of 12" water line. Two skier access trails (approximately 4.8 acres) into the Summit and Overlook were also approved with this project. The Overlook project consists of developing 26 custom homesite lots to the north and adjacent to the Summit. Lots range in size from 14,200 square feet to 18,000 square feet. The AEC survey department provided topographic design surveys, legal descriptions, property research, Final Map processing and approval and subdivision monumentation.

This lakefront project involved converting a partially built timeshare development into a new single-family residential Planned Development. Completed in 2014, Homewood Shores consists of 6 lakefront homes located in central Homewood, California. AEC provided survey, mapping and Placer County regulatory services. Close coordination with the County was required for re-approval of existing Improvement Plans, and fresh approval of the new Final Subdivision Map.

The Tahoe City Winter Sports Park is a recreation concession provided by Tahoe-XC for the TCPUD on the Tahoe City Golf Course and adjoining property. The Winter Sports Park offers cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and sledding during the winter at the Tahoe City Golf Course. The outdoor seasonal ice skating rink provides an additional amenity offered at the Winter Sports Park. AEC provided planning, design, and permitting services for the project.

The"64 Acres" site was once a trailer park that the U.S. Forest Service wanted to return to a more natural setting. Our job was to design and oversee construction of a new recreational facility that would not only be functional but beautiful. The site also had to be designed with flood and erosion control in mind to protect the scenic and environmental quality of the adjacent Truckee River.

Auerbach was involved in this project since its inception, providing civil engineering and regulatory processing support to the design team of landscape architects. Commons Beach is a public park in the center of Tahoe city owned by the people of Tahoe City and held in trust by Placer County. Aging facilities and needs for environmental restoration triggered a public participation and consensus process for improvements to the park. Alternative design concepts were considered and resulted in the development of a strategic plan for the refurbishment of Commons Beach.

The Homewood Bike Trail now connects two existing bike trail segments along SR 89 through Homewood. AEC was retained to provide topographic and design surveys, and regulatory permitting for this TRPA Environmental Improvement Project. Coordination with Placer County and Caltrans was required for existing plans and information developed as part of their erosion control projects in Homewood and on SR 89.

The Martis Valley Trail (MVT) is part of a planned 62-mile trail network referred to as the “Resort Triangle.” Covering about 9 miles, the MVT section extends between Truckee and the Tahoe Basin. MVT is being completed in phases, X of which AEC has contributed to in various capacities. Our Planning, Surveying, and Engineering teams have provided background reviews, compliance assistance, surveys and mapping services, civil design, and several other services for this section of the multi-use trail. See our other project descriptions for our services on other sections of the trail connecting the resorts and communities in our area.
