June meetings slated for Truckee Vets Hall future

Staff report

Two community meetings are scheduled next month to discuss the future of the Veterans Hall Building overlooking downtown Truckee.

Public feedback and ideas on the best use of the facility are encouraged at both meetings, from 6 to 8 p.m. on June 11 and June 25 at the hall, located at 10214 High St.

According to a press release, during the sessions, attendees will be guided through a professionally facilitated visioning process using interactive techniques that will weigh community values, ideas and perspectives while addressing the site’s capacity and restrictions.

These meetings will be hosted by the Friends of the Veterans Hall, whose mission is to “accomplish a community process resulting in recommendations to the TDRPD board that will ensure the historic and iconic Veterans Hall properties remain in public hands for recreational use and community enrichment now and for future generations.”

A new vision for the Vets Hall then will be presented to the Truckee-Donner Recreation & Park District board of directors at its July board meeting.

In March, the TDRPD board decided to put the potential sale of the hall on hold until additional review and community analysis could be compiled. The TDRRD has owned the building since 1994.
