WHAT IS THE PROJECT?

  • This project will expand the Glacier Way Trailhead parking lot to add more parking spaces and a permanent restroom facility to the site.

WHY THIS PROJECT?

  • The Glacier Way Trailhead parking area is one of the most popular trailheads in Tahoe Donner for both summer and winter use. The current parking lot is undersized for its current use and causes significant overflow onto the streets, impacting neighbors.
  • There is also a need for permanent restroom facilities in this area.
  • The Glacier Way Trailhead Parking Expansion Project was identified in the 2013 Trails Master Plan and included in the Tahoe Donner 5-Year Trails Implementation Plan entitled (CEQA) with Nevada County and the Town of Truckee in 2016.
  • The project was identified as a key component in the approved 2022 Trails and Open Space Master Plan.

WHAT ARE THE IMPACTS?

  • Impacts will be determined as project design is developed.

WHAT IS THE STATUS?

  • Staff have entered into a Professional Services Agreement with Millennium Planning & Engineering to provide professional civil engineering, planning and environmental services to design and permit the project.
  • A conceptual plan has been developed.
  • We have wrapped up stakeholder outreach and are proceeding with schematic design.

WHAT IS THE TOTAL COST OR BUDGET?

  • The board has approved soft costs not to exceed $106,177 in 2023.
  • The project has a funding plan associated with the Replacement Reserve and Development Funds based on conceptual estimates. $900,000 has been allocated for construction in the 5-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) included in the approved 2024 Budget.
  • Final construction costs will be refined as the design develops.
