Review of Tahoe Donner XC center delayed again

TRUCKEE, Calif. — A decision on the new Tahoe Donner cross-country ski center has been further delayed.

The Truckee Planning Commission’s Tuesday meeting was canceled due to no projects being ready for review, a town spokeswoman said.

While the cross-country center was slated for that meeting, town staff and Tahoe Donner are working to revise the project description to answer questions about use and environmental impacts, said Jenna Endres, associate planner with the town.

An updated project document should be done by the end of this week, she said, and will be recirculated for a 30-day comment period, remaining open until the planning commission’s May 20 meeting.

The last time the commission reviewed the project was at a special March 4 meeting, when members chose to delay a decision in lieu of more review time.

The roughly $6 million project would replace the current 8,271-square-foot facility at 15275 Alder Creek Road and have similar offerings — a food and beverage station, kitchen, dining area, retail shop, rental area, restrooms and offices.

It would be 23 percent larger, at 10,220 square feet, with an expanded parking lot that could accommodate 150 vehicles, up from 110. In addition, the center would feature a public locker room, public waxing room and a multi-use room.
