Notice of Chipping and Brushing

NOTICE OF BRUSHING AND CHIPPING OPERATIONS

The Town of Truckee Department of Public Works will commence its brushing and chipping program in various areas throughout Tahoe Donner. In accordance with town policy, Town of Truckee crews will be removing and thinning brush, trees and limbs from roadsides, ditches and drainage easements. Staff will work hard to minimize the impact of chipping and brushing operations, from both a convenience and an aesthetic point of view. The project is anticipated to continue through October.

Comments or questions can be submitted to Riley Morrison, street maintenance supervisor, at 530-582-2908; please leave your name, physical address, and phone number if/when leaving a voicemail.

Sustainability at The Lodge Restaurant & Pub



The Lodge Restaurant & Pub is proud to offer guests greener and healthier dining options. When possible, The Lodge uses the finest products available, including organic meats, locally grown produce and no trans fats in preparing your meals. Beyond the plate, The Lodge has an extensive sustainable wine list. Sustainable wines are harvested using renewable resources to protect our soil, air, water and animal life while producing high quality grapes.

“With growing health trends, many people want to know where their food comes from and how it’s prepared, and the same principles apply to wine,” said Christen Holland, Lodge general manager. “Fresh, organic ingredients are a priority to us and our guests, which is why we support wineries that commit to organic and sustainability practices.”

The Lodge is pleased to offer over 30 sustainable varieties to choose from that pair wonderfully with all of our dishes, including summer favorites: pan-roasted chicken in bourbon bbq sauce, braised Angus short ribs with a port wine demi, or even our watermelon and arugula salad topped with lime and balsamic gastric.

A few sustainable wine selections we encourage you try on your next lunch or dinner visit include Elizabeth Rose Pinot Noir, Praxis Pinot Noir, Keenan White Blend, Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvée and Rex Hill Pinot Noir. When viewing our wine menus at the restaurant or online, sustainable and eco-friendly wines are adorned with a green leaf next to their names for quick and convenient viewing. We hope you enjoy our sustainable wines as much as we do.

Ready for Wildfire



Please consider that dangerous fire conditions are currently in effect! For more information about fire danger and what is allowed, please visit our covenants page.

Information on Defensible Space:

Unprecedented weather conditions in Truckee and Tahoe this past winter means dangerous fire conditions will prevail.

Since 2007, Tahoe Donner has actively pursued improved defensible space through the Defensible Space program implemented by the Forestry Department. If you have any concerns or questions about your defensible space, our friendly forestry staff will be glad to assist. It is important to review your defensible space and maintain your property on an annual basis in preparation for a potential wildfire event. The requirements of our defensible space program mimics a low-intensity wildfire, which helps reduce the risk of a wildfire moving from the ground to the tree canopy.

Even tiny fires can quickly spread into a major problem. Extreme caution should be used when using outdoor fire pits and BBQs this summer! When enjoying these outdoor activities, be sure to have rapid response items in place to extinguish embers, including but not limited to: a water source (a bucket of water if not near a hose or spigot), a rake, and a shovel.

Learn how you can prepare your property for defensible space and reduce potential fire hazards this summer by visiting Tahoe Donner’s forestry pages and CAL Fire’s website ReadyForWildfire.org. Additionally, it is encouraged that each household review their emergency preparedness and evacuation plan in the event of an actual emergency. A hard copy of this plan is available at our Member Services and Architectural Standards offices. Call our professional Forestry Department at 530-587-9432 with further questions.
