Letter to the Editor: To the town of Truckee – what is your vision?

Is it just me or is the Truckee area feeling a bit claustrophobic lately? How many neighborhoods are finding that their open spaces, beyond a designated area, are inaccessible due to asphalt and signs.

For example, I remember a time when I could traverse freely from the eastern end of Truckee to Lake Tahoe. Now, I am hearing that a development of more than 200 homes, referred to as Canyon Springs, will be blocking this access.

My question to the town of Truckee is: What is your vision? My question is simply – do you value open space or do you pave paradise?
