Staff has prepared an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration for the proposed McIver Dairy Restoration and Public Use Project. The document is now available for review using the links below, or in the Community Development Department at Town Hall.
The McIver Dairy site, located at 10755 Donner Pass Rd., has a rich history in Truckee, providing a source of premium butter for much of the west coast in the late 1800s and early 1900s. More recently the site has been dubbed by some as the unofficial Truckee sled hill. Currently, the Truckee River Watershed Council is undertaking a grant-funded ecological restoration project of the wetland and meadow portions of the site. As the landowner, the Town is interested in providing safe and environmentally compatible access to the site and seeking how best to use this public space.
The Town has obtained a landscape architecture consultant, Callander Associates, to develop alternative conceptual drawings which include various public uses on this site.
At an open house-style community workshop hosted by the Town of Truckee on June 27th, 2018, Callander Associates presented project goals, existing site conditions, opportunities and constraints, and two design alternatives for the Site Use Plan for McIver Dairy Open Space. The purpose of this meeting was to receive input from the public on their vision and preferences for the design and program for the project site. A summary of the workshop is linked below:
