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.
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.
