Input wanted on Donner Lake boat docking issue

Residents concerns have delayed the proposed changes to the Truckee Donner Recreation & Park Districts rules about overnight boat mooring at public piers on Donner Lake from going into effect.Concerned citizens on both sides of the issue those in favor of prohibiting overnight tie-ups and those who dont see it as a problem spoke out at the districts board meeting on April 14, provoking the board to designate a subcommittee to look deeper into the issue before any action is taken.They just needed more time to look at all the facts, said Sue Mitchell, parks district executive secretary.Janet Brady, a member of the districts board of directors and the leader of the subcommittee looking into the boat mooring issue, is hoping to get interested parties together for an April 29 meeting at 6 p.m. at the Truckee Donner Community Center.There were issues that were brought to us at our last meeting that were conflicting, Brady said. So we thought rather than make a decision at that meeting, wed give the community time to give their input … and hopefully come up with an even better resolution.Brady stressed that the meeting was for everybody in the community, not just Donner Lake residents.The piers are for everyone and we want input from everyone, she said, adding, I certainly want the decision to reflect what the community wants us to do.Interested parties who cannot make the April 29 meeting can also call in, fax, e-mail or mail in their concerns to the district. Correspondence should be sent to park district General Manager Steve Randall at 582-7720 (phone), 582-7724 (fax), or 10046 Church St., Truckee, CA 96161.
