For Truckee, we have both the positive and negative impacts of tourism on the local economy and our residents. A Stewardship Plan focuses on an equitable approach that moves beyond business as usual to protect our core values and manage growth.
Visit Truckee-Tahoe is leading the development of a Truckee Stewardship Plan in 2023. The purpose of a Stewardship Plan is to agree upon a long-term roadmap with a high degree of citizen input that may require infrastructure improvements with metrics, accountability, and partnerships.
This will require community-feedback on which focus areas matter most as most negatively impacting quality of life (i.e. trash/toilets, transportation, trails degradation, etc.).
The Truckee Stewardship Plan will overlap and interconnect with the Lake Tahoe Stewardship Plan in key areas such as regional messaging. However, the two plans have distinctly different geographic boundaries. In general, the Truckee Stewardship Plan map shares similar boundaries to the Truckee River Watershed.
Truckee Resident Sentiment Surveys
Visit Truckee-Tahoe is using FlashVote to measure resident sentiment in 2023. Results will help inform the Truckee Stewardship Plan. The first of two resident surveys was released on June 7, 2023. The survey identified key issues and impact areas regarding summer recreation in Truckee. The second resident survey is planned for end of July 2023.
