2015 - 2016 Projects

D Street Public Works Facility
Project Manager: Jim Marino
Statue: Design
Schedule: 2016

The City acquired a parcel located at 1740 D Street to create an office and industrial facility for the City’s Public Works Department staff and equipment currently located at the Rufus Allen Corporation Yard and the Tata Lane Offices.

By relocating the staff and equipment at the Rufus Allen location, the City realizes potential for increased recreational opportunities and facilities at that location in conjunction with the proposed recreation center rehabilitation and future 56 acres project.

Bijou Bike Park
Project Manager: Jim Marino
Status: Design
Schedule 2015

The project consists of various compacted dirt courses/features and hardscape areas, and has been designed to  include two (2) pump tracks, a BMX race track, kids learning zone, and a terrain park within approximately five undeveloped acres of the Bijou Park area. The park will also include a hardscape paver stone entry area with signage that describes the park and its rules; bleachers for spectator seating; a future announcer booth; storage shed; and water and power utilities to service the park.

The new bike park would replace the less formal BMX track existing at the South Tahoe Middle School and provide a broader biking experience including the ability to host events sanctioned by USA BMX. The park, once constructed, will become a City asset and will be open to the public and available for special events, as approved by the Recreation Manager.

Tahoe Valley Stormwater Improvement Project

Project Manager: 
Status: planning
Schedule: 2016

The Tahoe Valley Stormwater Improvement Project includes much of the densely developed commercial areas near U.S. Highway 50, both north and south of the “Y”. The area is a priority for treatment as storm water runoff discharges directly to the Upper Truckee River, which drains to Lake Tahoe.  The project includes design of water quality improvements to reduce pollutant loads discharged to the Upper Truckee River.

The Tahoe Valley SWIP ties in with the Tahoe Valley Area Plan to reduce pollutant loading while creating a walkable, bikable and scenic connection from one of the more densely populated areas of the City to adjacent neighborhoods. The Tahoe Valley Area Plan is currently under review.
