The Town is embarking on a comprehensive update to its General Plan. In the last decade there has been new State legislation including General Plan requirements, new growth and development pressures in the region and focused community interest in affordable locals housing and sustainability that are not adequately addressed in the Town’s current 2025 General Plan. The General Plan Update process provides an important opportunity for the community to provide direction on how Truckee might best fulfill its community vision and how development should occur in the future. An important part of the update process is to gain input from a broad cross-section of the community through a collaborative approach. This is a two- to three-year community commitment, initiated by the Town Council.       

General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC) 

With the Council's initiation of the General Plan Update, the Council approved the creation of a robust community-based public engagement process. The creation of a General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC) was one of several opportunities for public participation supported by Council to involve a variety of stakeholders, community perspectives, and interests. The GPAC will play a critical role in developing an inclusive planning effort that ensures broad public participation. The GPAC is a temporary Council advisory committee tasked with making recommendations on amendments to the Truckee General Plan to the Truckee Planning Commission and Town Council. The membership will consist of volunteer community members representing a wide variety of backgrounds, perspectives and interests. To learn more about the GPAC, visit our GPAC page here.
