Land Trust hosts community PC2 forum Friday, Feb. 5

Staff Reports

For those who want to know more about the development of Boca Sierra Estates on Planned Community 2, a public forum is planned tomorrow.

The Truckee-Donner Land Trust will host a “Community Forum on PC-2,” Friday, Feb. 5, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Truckee Community Center on Church Street.

Residents will have the opportunity to find out what has happened with PC-2 since the public meetings and workshops were conducted last year, and find out what the current status of the proposed development is.

Executive Director Dan Wendin of the Truckee-Donner Land Trust will serve as a neutral moderator for the forum, which will feature presentations by Stefanie Olivieri and Steve Frisch of the Mountain Area Preservation Foundation, and a presentation by Brian Mullins, who represents the Hopkins family, owners of PC-2.

Each group will present their positions, followed by a brief rebuttal and question and answer period.

Planned topics include an overview of the project, open space and trail alignments, and specific changes to the plan since the community outreach meetings last fall and discussions with the Town of Truckee.

Anyone unable to attend may send questions to the Truckee-Donner Land Trust at P.O. Box 8816, Truckee, CA, 96162, fax them to (530)582-5528 or email them to tdlt@sierra.net before Feb. 5.

These questions will be presented to the speakers and written responses will be provided after the meeting.

The forum will begin with a short introduction by Wendin, followed by a 50-minute project overview, a 25-minute discussion of open space and trails and a 40-minute presentation of changes made since the conclusion of the town workshops.

Presenters will be available after the meeting to answer questions and receive comments.

Communications Director Kris Norris said representatives of MAPF and Boca Sierra Estates requested that the land trust serve as a moderator for the forum, because the organization has remained strictly neutral on the issues involved in the development.
