$7.2M Truckee aquatic center plans moving forward
July 29, 2013
TRUCKEE, Calif. — Plans are progressing on the new $7.2-million Truckee-Donner Recreation & Park District aquatic center.
The site plan layout and building footprint have been finalized, allowing property surveying, civil engineering and site design to begin this week, project architect Mark Wilson said in a statement.
Additionally, pool, mechanical, plumbing, electrical and structural engineers will soon begin project drawings in their respective fields.
"Plans are moving along just fine," reported Steve Randall, district general manager, to the TDRPD board of directors last Thursday.
A TDRPD design committee and the board of directors will review the project's design plans at various stages of completion, with potential approvals by Aug. 15 and Sept. 15.
Final drawings would be submitted to the town of Truckee Planning Commission and other government entities in September for approval.
If approved, the project should be ready for bid by Nov. 1, with April 15, 2014, being the earliest construction can begin, Randall said in a follow-up interview. Construction is estimated to take roughly a year to complete.
When finished, the center will feature a 25-yard, 8-lane competition pool; 2,500-square-foot leisure pool, with a 70-foot current channel and 20-yard warm water lap lanes; locker rooms; and a party room, among other amenities.
It will be located adjacent to the Truckee Community Recreation Center at 8924 Donner Pass Road.
