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.
Planning and design for the relocation of the downtown Tahoe City Fire Station to a site located off Fairway Drive in Tahoe City. The project includes site work for a 20,000 square foot public safety center including roadway improvements to Fairway Drive, parking, new utilities and utility relocations, and a storm water collection and treatment system. AEC completed a report outlining environmental review and regulatory strategies, including resource reports covering wetlands identification, biological constraints, traffic and cultural resource issues. AEC prepared the environmental document and was responsible for all permits and regulatory approvals including 404 and 401 permitting for mitigation of wetland impacts as well as SEZ transfers through TRPA from an outside entity. The largest challenges of this project has been the impact of the footprint and siting the development to avoid the stream environment zone and wetlands that surround it. Also important, is the development of a storm water management plan that is acceptable to the TRPA and Lahontan, which provides treatment of runoff at reasonable cost.
Date of completion: Fall 2012
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: 2004
Mr. Auerbach was Project Manager for civil design and infrastructure development for this destination resort development. AEC served as the team civil engineer and land surveyor for this 6-acre multi-family mixed use project. AEC prepared the project base maps, conducted utility surveys for relocation documents, prepared drainage analysis and reports in accordance with Placer County requirements, prepared final maps and condominium plans, and prepared construction documentation for roadways, drainage systems, and utility extensions/reinforcements. This was a complex multi-phase, multi-year development, coordinated with numerous regulatory agencies and utility providers. AEC was the engineer of record for the entire project from preliminary planning and tentative maps, through to construction and project closeout.
