Staff report

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Mountain Area Preservation announced this week a $4,000 donation from Truckee-Tahoe Lumber Co. in support of the Trout Creek Pocket Park, located at Bridge and Jibboom streets in Downtown Truckee.

“Truckee-Tahoe Lumber is passionate about contributing to and doing what’s best for the Town of Truckee and this includes supporting the beautification of the downtown area,” said company president Andrew Cross.

The Trout Creek Pocket Park and Restoration Initiative has been part of the Truckee Downtown Specific Plan’s vision since 1997.

This project is expected to revitalize and restore an urban natural resource and neglected landscape by creating a green open space and park setting for visitors and locals to enjoy along the creek’s edge.
