Sierra Meadows/Ponderosa Palisades

Sierra Meadows and Ponderosa Palisades are located across the Truckee River, off Highway 267.  It’s a primary residence area with some second homeowners who want to be close to the airport or Northstar Ski Resort.  Although the two neighborhoods share the same entrance and exit, they differ in services.  Sierra Meadows has a homeowners’ association with annual fees, tennis courts and a pool.  Ponderosa Palisades has more trees, no association and no amenities.  Beyond Sierra Meadows and Ponderosa Palisades there are two subdivisions called Ponderosa Ranchos and Martiswood, zoned for horses.  The neighborhood features underground utilities and a mix of primary and second homes.  Across from Sierra Meadows and Ponderosa Palisades is another neighborhood, Ponderosa Fairway Estates.
