Tryggvi resigns after 16 years on planning commission

Scott Hess

Town of Truckee Planning Commission member Britta Tryggvi has stepped down from her role, making way for a new commissioner.

Tryggvi said she wanted someone new to fill the position before the town went into the heart of the General Plan Update process, so the new member will be there for the life of the update.

Also, she mentioned she is very busy and the General Plan Update will require more time than she has. “I don’t have time for more meetings,” she said. “It’s a big commitment.”

Tryggvi has served on the planning commission since 1987 – before the town was incorporated and the commission was called the Eastern Nevada County Truckee Planning Commission – which is also a factor in her resignation, she said.

Tryggvi said she has been involved long enough, and needs to spend more time focusing on her job as the president of CFA, inc., a Reno-based planning, engineering, mapping, architecture, management and inspection firm.

Applications will be accepted until Wednesday, Aug. 13, and the spot should be filled in approximately a month, according to Town Planner Duane Hall.
