$7.2M Truckee aquatic center up for review next Tuesday

TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Truckee-Donner Recreation & Park District’s aquatic center project is slated to go before the Truckee Planning Commission at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 17.

If approved, the $7.2 million project is expected to go to bid later this month, with April 15, 2014, being the earliest construction can begin, said Steve Randall, TDRPD general manager.

Once complete, the aquatic 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 other amenities.

It will be located next to the Truckee Community Recreation Center at 8924 Donner Pass Road. It will replace the aging Truckee-Donner Community Swimming Pool located behind Truckee High School at 11725 Donner Pass Road.

The facility is expected to open in either the spring or summer of 2015.
