Truckee Tahoe Lumber Company (TTL) has given Mountain Area Preservation (MAP) a $4,000 donation in support of the Trout Creek Pocket Park, located at Bridge and Jibboom Streets in Historic Downtown Truckee. This donation will cover the cost of the structural footings for the Art Bike Rack and the Rotating Public Art. “Truckee-Tahoe Lumber is passionate about contributing to and doing what’s best for the Town of Truckee and this includes supporting the beautification of the downtown area,” Andrew Cross, President of Truckee-Tahoe Lumber Company.
The Trout Creek Pocket Park and Restoration Initiative has been part of the Truckee Downtown Specific Plan’s vision since 1997. This project will revitalize and restore an urban natural resource and neglected landscape by creating a green open space and park setting for visitors and locals to enjoy along the creek’s edge.
MAP plans to break ground this spring and believes that the Trout Creek Pocket Park will be the catalyst for more green spaces throughout downtown Truckee. We are still in need of donations to support this effort. Please contact Nikki Riley at 530-582-6751 or Nikki@mapf.org to contribute to the Friends of Trout Creek and learn more about this project.
