Hundreds Of Groups Unite For One Truckee River Plan | KUNR

For the first time a comprehensive management plan is being proposed for the Truckee River. This week, that plan will be revealed to the public.

Along the Truckee River there are more than 130 groups and government agencies. Each one has its own way of managing things like people and pollution. Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful Executive Director Christi Cakiroglu has seen the result of this inconsistent management.

“It’s a lot of user trash and a lot of camping trash, and so we really want to reduce that and make the Truckee River a highlight of our region,” she says.

KTMB, Nevada Land Trust and the US Parks Service spent the last 18 months bringing all the stakeholders together, identifying hundreds of problems and solutions. The result is the 83-page One River Plan. It has 26 goals for the next year, including: Managing bathrooms, public access, restoration, mapping, biodiversity and homelessness.

Cakiroglu says ideally the end result of this plan would be a Truckee regional park to handle of that.
