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 project included a complete refurbishment of the park area. This involved upgrading the playground to meet current safety standards; relocation of the restroom building to a more accessible location; reconstructing the sewer pump station and force main; highway streetscape improvements including removal of existing boardwalk and railing, installation of a depressed walkway surfaced with concrete pavers and cable railing. Beach improvements included placement of 12,000 cubic feet of imported sand in former grassed areas. Shoreline stabilization was necessary to protect the beach, and a dynamic rock revetment was designed to mimic natural conditions. Other work included restoration and stabilization of the steep slopes and existing foot trail, providing ADA access to restrooms, interpretive displays of Tahoe history, a picnic terrace area and overlook areas, and a reconstructed parking area with advanced stormwater BMP’s due to proximity to Lake Tahoe.

The Lakeside Trail is a one-mile segment in the largest paved trail system at Lake Tahoe, connecting the North Shore, West Shore, and the Truckee River and Squaw Valley. This segment courses through the core of Tahoe City in close proximity to the Truckee River and Lake Tahoe and was developed in seven phases due to its complexities. Water quality and coverage mitigation strategies were successfully implemented throughout the trail and allowed for enhanced restoration of areas that had been previously disturbed. Managed public access and friendly barrier features have kept users on the trail and away from sensitive areas. Major utility upgrades and relocations as well as storm water treatment facilities and source control measures on and off site were key benefits of the trail.

Relocation of the downtown Tahoe City Fire Station to a 20,000 square foot public safety center. The largest challenge of this project was in siting the development to avoid the stream environment zone and wetlands that surround it. Also important, is the development of a stormwater management plan that is acceptable to the TRPA and Lahontan, which provides treatment of runoff at reasonable cost.

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.

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.
