The Town is partnering with the Truckee Donner Land Trust to acquire and preserve the 26-acre Bright Property open space in Downtown Truckee. In 2019, the Town committed $500,000 for the acquisition of this property. We are currently developing plans for a pedestrian bridge, trailhead, and Legacy Trail connection, which will provide a permanent downtown open space and access to the Truckee River.
The Town’s Development Code provides open space requirements for new development. The 2040 General Plan update process also provides Truckee the opportunity to rezone certain strategic parcels to open space.
