Tuscany Hills Gets Nod Of Approval From Calaveras Board

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — 335 more homes in Copperopolis could soon be a reality after the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors gave a Tuscan themed development an initial nod of approval Tuesday.

Tuscany Hills would boast a Jack Nicklaus golf course along the shores of Lake Tulloch.

Four of the five supervisors indicated that they favor the project and some of the concessions the developer has made such as a park with beach access and building away from the lakeshore. Supervisor Steve Wilensky was absent.

Other features of the 1,100-acre development include a 27-boat dock and marina and the creation of the Tuscany Hills Foundation aimed at balancing growth with the needs of the community. The developer, Red Mountain Resorts of Los Altos, has promised the foundation $2,000 from every parcel sale to ensure its viability.

Before the development can be formally approved, the Planning Department requested two weeks to make sure all of the findings of approval are correct. The board will make its final decision at the July 24 meeting.
