Truckee Council could approve Railyard by June 18
TRUCKEE ” Truckee Town Council has decided on a potential approval timeline for the Railyard development that could put it in contention for a piece of $200 million in Prop 1C funding from the state.
Thursday’s vote sets up a tentative schedule for the public review of the Railyard development east of downtown Truckee, potentially setting the mixed-us development up for approval by June 18.
“There is always the potential to add additional tasks, presentations, or workshops if we feel they are needed,” said Council Member Richard Anderson. “The town priority is still the public process itself, making sure its thorough and adequate.”
The schedule gives owner Holliday Development the opportunity to apply for California Prop 1C funding to help with infrastructure work like roads, moving the balloon track (loop of railroad for snowplow trains to turn around on) that sits on the property, and fixing up Trout Creek.
Rick Holliday, owner of Holliday Development, estimated the work at about $15 million.
“I’m pleased we’ve got a schedule, I’m looking forward to the next seven weeks,” Holliday said. “If we hold to this schedule we will be considered to have the necessary level of approval to get the funds.”
