Town of Truckee to host public workshop regarding redevelopment of the former Nevada County corporation yard site

Special to the Sun

TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; In the continuing effort to collect community input regarding future redevelopment of the former Nevada County corporation yard site at 10257 W. River St. in downtown Truckee, the Town of Truckee will host the second of three public workshops in the Council Chambers at Town Hall on Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 6 p.m.

BMS Design Group, based out of Nevada City, will lead the discussion with Town staff support. The agenda will consist of a presentation, followed by an open discussion, focusing on the two site design alternatives that have resulted from input received from the design team, as well as input contributed from the community at the first public workshop held in October 2010.

This site represents an opportunity to design a project that embraces the Truckee River as a community asset, while also acting as a catalyst to encourage revitalization of other properties in the vicinity of this project. It is envisioned that this project will help create a gateway entrance for this portion of downtown Truckee, thus also benefitting properties along West River Street eastward towards Bridge Street. It is also hoped that this project will encourage future development of a foot bridge to the south bank of the Truckee River, which could potentially tie into a future leg of the Legacy Trail running along the south side of the river.
