ISSUE WATCH: Kings Beach Traffic, Truckee Corporation Yard, Ice Rink Plans

The Placer County Board of Supervisors voted to turn Highway 28 into three lanes through Kings Beach and add two roundabouts at intersections.

Before making a decision, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency Board wants to see plans for calming traffic through Kings Beach neighborhoods during peak traffic periods.

Two community meetings will allow people to learn about traffic calming plans today, Oct. 7 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the North Tahoe Conference Center for English speakers and Thursday, Oct. 9 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Kings Beach Elementary for Spanish speakers.

The Town of Truckee is proposing to develop a new public service center on 16.4 acres above Glenshire Drive near Donner Pass Road.

The site will house a new animal care facility and the corporation yard ” where the town stores heavy equipment like snow plows. The site is being shared with the U.S. Forest Service and Truckee Fire Protection District.

The Truckee Planning Commission will consider adopting environmental documents for the project on Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 6 p.m. at town hall.

Ice Rink Plans

In December, John Hugo of Truckee asked the Truckee-Donner Recreation and Park District board of directors for the possible use of three acres of district land for a proposed Olympic-sized ice rink.

Hugo has since downsized the project to a National Hockey League-sized arena to fit within the rodeo grounds parcel, but the board has yet to approve the project.

The Truckee-Donner Recreation and Park District will discuss the ice rink project and will request community feedback at their next board meeting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 9 at 10046 Church St.
