California Governor Newsom directed the California Department of General Services (DGS) to identify excess state properties as potential affordable housing development sites (Executive Order N-06-19). The former California Highway Patrol Truckee Office property was identified as an ideal site to fulfill E.O. N-06-19. The proposed project helps provide workforce housing identified necessary under E.O. N-06-19 and it implements the State’s vision of residential development in close proximity to transit, pedestrian-friendly commercial centers, supporting a vibrant and sustainable community. DGS proposes entering into low-cost, long-term ground lease for residential construction and operation of Pacific Crest Commons Project. The proposed project site 1.75 acres and the project would include demolition of all on-site buildings and development of two, three-story residential buildings (Buildings A and B) consisting of 55 affordable multi-family units. Building A would consist of 25 total units and Building B would consist of 30 total units. In addition, Building A would include 3,450 sf of common areas on the ground floor, such as a community space, office space, and meeting room. One hundred percent of the project’s units would be affordable for households at 30 to 80 percent annual median income (AMI). Each building would also include storage spaces and laundry facilities. The project would include 79 surface parking spaces, as well as a playground area, picnic areas, open space, and a public art space. Primary vehicle access would be along SR 89 and a secondary emergency vehicle only access would be provided through a connection to Donner Way. The proposed project includes compliance requirements with all applicable environmental laws and rules pertaining to site work, proper handling of demolition and construction debris, and conservation measures pertaining to site work, preconstruction surveys for nesting birds, and inadvertent discoveries of cultural resources.
