The public and Truckee Town Council members will get a chance Thursday to vet Planned Community 1, otherwise known as the Coldstream development.

Town staff and representatives from Teichert, the project developer, will make a presentation on the project, then council members will ask questions, after which public comment will be taken.

The Coldstream development is in summary plan mode, which is a preliminary step to allow for more feedback from the town council and the community, said Tony Lashbrook, Truckee town manager.

“Planned communities are big and have town-wide implications,” he said. “That’s why we are taking this extra step.”

Lashbrook said one of the main issues will be the Deerfield Drive connection. The Truckee Planning Commission is recommending a study be done on the possibilities of re-connecting the two ends of Deerfield Drive.

Another key issue will be how development will occur on the Donner State Park boundary and how key trails and public access will be affected, Lashbrook said.

The town, the Truckee River Legacy Foundation, and the Truckee Trails Foundation are working on a project for the extension of the Legacy Trail through the new development.

According to the Coldstream PC-1 summary plan, the development will include;

– A total of 178 acres at the base of Coldstream Canyon in west Truckee.

– 30,000 to 50,000 square feet of retail and office space.

– Over 100 acres of open space and recreation uses.

– A neighborhood recreation center.

– 30-50 residential units

– 209 single-family units.

– 55 cabin attached units.

– 25 to 50 multi-family units.
