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.

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 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 applications with TRPA, and based on the results, preparation and processing of Land Capability Challenge applications with TRPA to re-delineate the Stream Environment Zone on the property. In parallel with the above work, AEC prepared an evaluation of parking options, including a summary of regulatory and engineering opportunities and constraints for each option.
