Recommendation: Council approve Resolution 98-09 supporting the "Our <br />Truckee River Legacy" project. <br /> <br />Marshall Lewis, Truckee Rotary Member, reviewed the Vision Statement and Mission Statement <br />for the "Our Truckee River Legacy". The trail would link Glenshire, Highway 89, and the Donner <br />Rim Trail. The project would be a gift to future generations and ourselves to honor the river by <br />making it accessible while preserving and protecting it. <br /> <br />Frank Bulkley, First President, Truckee River Legacy Foundation, reviewed the Phase I Plan. <br />They had coordinated with numerous State and local agencies, organizations and homeowners and <br />all had asked how they could help facilitate the project. The trail would be 8ft. wide and was not <br />intended to be a commuter trail or bike trail, but provide access to the river. The trail would be <br />constructed with decomposed granite (natural) and work would start summer of 1998. They had <br />established a foundation for the project which would be a long-term vehicle and used for funding. <br /> <br />Mayor Florian questioned how people and organizations could get involved. Mr. Buckley responded <br />that anyone interested should talk to a Rotarian; a lot of physical work would be required in June and <br />July and volunteers were needed. <br /> <br />Councilmember Schneider stated she had been involved in the project and felt there was a great <br />opportunity for non-Rotarians to become involved. It was an opportunity to restore something that <br />should have never been neglected to the degree it was. <br /> <br />Councilmember McCormack thanked the Rotary for taking leadership in the project and recognizing <br />the importance of the river. <br /> <br />Motion by Councilmember McCormack to approve Resolution 98q09, Seconded by <br />Councilmember Susman, passed unanimously. <br /> <br /> <br />
