Town of Truckee
As Truckee (“Town”) begins a General Plan update this year, it will develop a vulnerability assessment to identify the risks of climate change to the community and guide the creation of adaption goals, policies and actions. The assessment’s outcome will inform community workshops, adaptation strategies for the general plan, and a new, robust safety element meeting the requirements of SB 379. The process will include innovative public engagement involving stakeholders, special districts, and the public with an emphasis on reaching disadvantaged and transit-dependent community members. Through the General Plan process, the project will better allow the Town to integrate climate change impacts in its planning and investment decisions and meet state and local greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals.
