Timberline at Auburn EIR
The proposed gated age-restricted community will include a total of 860 dwelling units, which includes 78 lofts. The project is proposed to include a range of residential products, including Independent Living buildings (three story), Villa Duplexes, detached Villas, and Assisted Living buildings.
The approximately 25 acres on the east side of the project will be a commercial center that will satisfy most of the needs of the Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) residents as well as area residents and visitors. North of this center will be additional office and commercial uses. Raney prepared a project-level EIR that will provide a comprehensive analysis of the anticipated environmental effects associated with completion of the proposed project.
The primary environmental issues of concern for the Timberline at Auburn project are Aesthetics; Air Quality; Biological Resources; Geology and Soils; Hazards and Hazardous Materials; Hydrology and Water Quality; Land Use & Planning; Mineral Resources; Noise; Public Services; Transportation and Circulation; and Utilities & Service Systems. The Draft EIR was prepared and circulated for public review.
The Final EIR was completed and certified, and the project was approved. A lawsuit was filed, and the judge ruled in favor of the applicant; however an appeal has been filed.
