The wetland mitigation project represents a collaboration between the North Tahoe Fire Protection District (NTFPD) for impacts associated with their new fire station, and the Tahoe City Public Utility District (TCPUD) for impacts associated with the Lakeside Trail. AEC identified a joint project that would address feasible and appropriate mitigation needs for both sets of impacts. The Station 51 original relocation project included 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. The Lakeside Trail is the final one-mile segment in the largest paved trail system at Lake Tahoe connecting the existing multi-purpose trails through a highly constrained urban core of Tahoe City, along the lake shore. The purpose of this project was to mitigate the permanent and temporary impacts to existing wetlands. The project area that was selected meets the criteria set forth by current U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Final Mitigation Guidelines and Monitoring Requirements, and as mandated by the Water Quality Certification Permits (401 Permits) issued for both the NTFPD and TCPUD projects. The mitigation project is currently being monitored annually by AEC and its biological subconsultants.
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 […]

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.
