Public hearing scheduled Monday for Truckee development

TRUCKEE, Calif. — At 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 25, Truckee Town Council will hold a public hearing on the Coldstream development.

The project proposes up to 300 residential units, including affordable housing; up to 30,000 square feet of commercial space; roughly 109 acres of open space/wetlands; about 4.5 miles of trails; and a public park in the Coldstream area between Donner Memorial State Park and the Boulders.

In June, the Truckee Planning Commission weighed two options, deciding to recommend to council the option that would allow Deerfield traffic to travel through the project area, where as the other option did not.

The 178-acre property was the site of gravel and sand mining from the mid-1950s to mid-80s for Teichert.

According to the company, it’s committed to converting previously mined lands into open space, nature preserves, agricultural land and other uses compatible with neighboring communities.

Monday’s meeting takes place at town hall, at 10183 Truckee Airport Road in Truckee.
