TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; A decision will not be handed down today regarding the Railyard development lawsuit, Judge C. Anders Holmer announced.

Attorneys from both sides of the Friends of Truckee v. Town of Truckee case met for a hearing Friday at Nevada County Superior Court in Truckee.

and#8220;I have no intention of ruling today,and#8221; Holmer said during the hearing.

Check back at http://www.sierrasun.com Monday morning for a recap of Friday’s proceedings.

The Railyard site on the east end of downtown Truckee was used for transcontinental railroad operations and as a lumber mill, which closed in 1989.

The Sierra Business Council and Town of Truckee began working to promote infill development on the site, and in 2004, Holliday Development purchased a significant portion of the property.

The draft Truckee Railyard Master Plan was released November 2007, and town council voted unanimously to approve in June 2009. The Friends of Truckee filed suit shortly thereafter, and the case has been in pre-trial hearings since.

The group takes issue with the project’s restoration plans for Trout Creek, an old railroad building on the site, and the re-routing of Donner Pass Road.
