TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Nevada County Transportation Commission will host a public information sessions this week in Truckee to gather feedback on the update of its Regional Transportation Plan.

According to the commission, the plan’s purpose is to document short-term (10-year) and long-term (20-year) regional transportation needs, and set forth an effective, cost-feasible action plan to meet these needs.

The RTP will document policy direction, actions and funding strategies to maintain and improve the regional transportation system in Nevada County.

The outreach session will take place from 5 to 8:30 p.m. during Truckee Thursdays in downtown.

It will feature an open-house format for residents to discuss transportation needs, issues and concerns with NCTC staff and Fehr & Peers, the consultant hired to update the plan, according to the county.

One meeting was held last week in Grass Valley, and another is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 15, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Nevada City Farmers Market.
