Truckee River Recreation Area Plan

The proposed TRRAP would provide public accessibility, connectivity, educational, and recreational opportunities, as well as identify opportunities to restore watershed and habitat ecosystems within the TRRAP plan area.

The TRRAP plan area is located within the County of Placer, 114 miles east of Sacramento, and approximately 48 miles southwest of Reno, Nevada to the northwest shore of Lake Tahoe. The TRRAP area follows the Truckee River corridor from the intersection of Squaw Valley Road and State Route (SR) 89 and extends downstream approximately 8 miles to West River Street near the intersection of SR 89 (Exhibit 1). The TRRAP corridor extends approximately one-eighth mile (660 feet) on either side of the Truckee River.

Placer County is the lead agency for the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed draft Truckee River Recreational Access Plan (TRRAP) project (proposed project) in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), State CEQA Guidelines Section 15082. The purpose of the Notice of Preparation (NOP) is to provide responsible agencies and interested persons with sufficient information to enable them to make meaningful comments regarding the scope and content of the EIR. Your timely comments will ensure an appropriate level of environmental review for the project.

Written comments should be submitted at the earliest possible date, but not later than 5:00 p.m. on August 9, 2021 to Shirlee Herrington, Environmental Coordination Services, Community Development Resource Agency, 3091 County Center Drive, Suite 190, Auburn, CA 95603. (530) 745-3132, Fax: (530) 745-3080, [email protected]

In addition to the opportunity to submit written comments, an NOP scoping meeting will be held virtually via zoom to inform interested parties about the proposed project, and to provide agencies and the public with an opportunity to provide comments on the scope and content of the EIR. Further information on the date and time of the scoping meeting is provided below.
