Staff reports

The Truckee Town Council is hosting a workshop on growth and development issues affecting the community on Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 6 p.m. in the Town Hall Council Chambers.

This workshop is the fourth in a series of monthly workshops covering issues of importance to Truckee.

The workshop will include a detailed update of the development summary presented last winter along with comparisons of Truckee General Plan growth projections and actual development.

An analysis of the amount of residential, commercial and industrial development proposed by applications under review compared to long-term growth projections will also be provided.

In addition, relevant information and recommendations from the recently completed Economic Strategy will be presented. Finally, the effectiveness of the public participation efforts required for major development will be discussed.

The information presented at the workshop will be provided to all workshop attendees and will also be available at Town Hall following the workshop. In addition to the formal presentation and discussion, plans for many of the larger projects under Town review will be displayed along with information regarding process status and opportunities for public involvement.

The format of the workshop is designed to encourage informal public input and discussion and the community is encouraged to attend.

The workshop is not designed to result in formal decisions; however, the Council may provide direction to staff to prepare information for future consideration.
