Granite View Condominiums
The proposed project would include development of a 214,493-square foot (sf) rectangular building consisting of 52 hotel/condominium units and a parking structure with 121 parking stalls. The hotel/condominium building would be constructed on the 1.31-acre portion of the site designated Village Commercial (VC). A winding footpath would connect the proposed hotel/condominium building to various outdoor amenities to be located within the Forest Recreation (FR) zoned portion of the site. The amenities would include a tea house, a pool and hot tubs with adjacent gas firepits, and a yoga hut and platforms. The proposed project also includes a new road to connect the proposed building to Chamonix Place to the south. The proposed road would be off-site through an access easement on the parcel to the south of the project site.
The 7.82-acre project site, identified by Assessor’s Parcel Number (APN) 096-540-017, consists of an irregularly-shaped parcel located north of Chamonix Place, approximately two miles west of the intersection of State Route (SR) 89 and Olympic Valley Road, in Olympic Valley in unincorporated Placer County, California. An off-site access easement would be located on the 3.7-acre parcel (APN 096-540-015) located immediately adjacent to the project site to the south. The project site is located on a hillside in a primarily forested area in the western portion of Olympic Valley, west of Lake Tahoe. Granite Chief Trail is located west of the project site. Rural residences and private condominiums are located to the east of the project. The Olympic Village Inn is located south of the project site. Squaw Creek is located west and south of the project site, at distances ranging from approximately 800 feet to 1,000 feet. Additional Olympic Valley hotels and resorts are located south of Squaw Creek, such as Palisades Tahoe and Plumpjack Squaw Valley Inn.
Placer County is the lead agency for the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Granite View Condominium Project (proposed project) in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), Section 15082. A Notice of Preparation of an EIR (NOP) was released for public review on April 21, 2022.

NOP Scoping Period and Meeting: In addition to the opportunity to submit written comments during the comment period (April 21, 2022 through May 20, 2022), a NOP scoping meeting will be held in person and virtually via zoom to inform interested parties about the proposed project, and to provide agencies and the public with an opportunity to provide comments on the scope and content of the EIR.
