By way of background, my organization is building a bike <br />trail from Lake Tahoe to Pyramid Lake, including connecting Truckee's Legacy Trail to a future trail along the Truckee <br />River east of Glenshire. We hope to keep connectivity for non-motorized travelers in mind during decisions by all <br />entities in two states, five counties and four cities along the Truckee River. <br /> <br />My comments are: <br /> <br />1. At page 4.14-20, the statement about Hirschdale Bridges should be updated to reflect Nevada County's recent <br />decision NOT to remove the bridges. <br /> <br />2. The project proposes no bike lanes, but a substantial safety enhancement for both new residents of the project <br />and the public could be achieved by implementing bike lanes on Glenshire Drive from the terminus of the new Legacy <br />Trail to Hirschdale Drive. <br /> <br />3. Traffic volume at school start and end times is cited as a concern in the traffic study, which could be reduced by <br />implementing the trail plan for Glenshire. <br /> <br />Thank you for the opportunity to comment. <br /> <br />Janet R.
