Truckee aquatic center project review set for Nov. 19

TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Truckee-Donner Recreation & Park District’s aquatic center project is slated to go before the Truckee Planning Commission at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 19.

If approved, the estimated $7.2 million project is expected to go out to bid in December, with April 15, 2014, being the earliest construction can begin. The building is expected to open in either spring or summer of 2015.

Once complete, the center will feature a 25-yard, 8-lane competition pool, and a 2,500-square-foot leisure pool, with a 70-foot current channel and 20-yard warm water lap lanes, among other amenities.

It will be next to the Truckee Community Recreation Center at 8924 Donner Pass Road. It will replace the aging Truckee-Donner Community Swimming Pool located behind Truckee High School at 11725 Donner Pass Road.
