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.

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 existing boat ramp and pier at Lake Forest is one of few public use facilities of its kind around the lake. Due to its design and location it provides safe and convenient access to thousands of users every year. The rehabilitation project included replacement and widening of the boat ramp in accordance with the California Department of Boating and Waterways’ design standards, and dredging of lake access to the previous dredged elevation of 6219’ to enable boat operation at lower lake levels. AEC was retained for civil design, permitting, construction support, as well as topographic and bathymetric surveys for design and planning purposes.
This project consists of a double-loaded 90-degree bay parking lot accommodating 20 parking spaces, located in Kings Beach, California. Landscaping is proposed around the perimeter of the project to provide screening of the lot from surrounding properties. The storm water treatment system is designed to meet County standards per the Storm Water Management Manual (SWMM), as well as TRPA standards. Utility relocation was also required for the project.
The Jackpine Public Parking Facility, located in downtown Tahoe City provides parking for approximately 40 vehicles. AEC began this project with the Redevelopment Agency providing topographic and ALTA surveys of the site for acquisition purposes. Initial steps were then taken by AEC to evaluate the development potential of the site, including processing of site assessment […]

This Lake Tahoe Environmental Improvement Project on U.S. Forest Service Land involved construction of a 6-bus inter-modal transit facility, 131-space parking lot, relocation of 450 feet of recreation access road, relocation and extension of 1,600 LF of multi-purpose recreational trails, and all storm drainage and water quality treatment systems. Roadway and drainage improvements to State Route 89 were required for left turn channelization and highway intersection improvements for the relocated recreation access road. The project design incorporated low-impact design principles, extensive use of permeable pavements and advanced stormwater management systems.
Date of completion: Fall 2012
AEC prepared a BMP work plan to improve/restore function of existing drainage, treatment and disposal systems as well as design additional facilities/treatment including drip line trenches, curbs, snow storage area, including revegetation and mulching. Review and evaluation of previous construction plans, and existing digital mapping resources were utilized to streamline this project and minimize costs.
Date of completion: Summer 2012
The Lakeside Trail Project connects existing multi-purpose trails through the urban core of Tahoe City, along the lake shore. The project involves roughly one mile of trail and includes amenities such as plazas, landscaping and interpretive signage.
This water quality project included construction of curb and gutter, storm drain facilities and relocation of existing utilities within Placer County roadways throughout the Kings Beach grid area.
