Planners to consider a new trail near Glenbrook

Regina Purcell

A resolution to amend the Douglas County Comprehensive Trails Plan to add a trail to Slaughterhouse Canyon near Lake Tahoe will be discussed today.

The Douglas County Planning Commission will consider the new trail on property at the end of Lands End Road in the Glenbrook area, adjacent to U.S. Forest Service land.

The property is owned by the Rockwell 1997 Trust, represented by Chad Smittkamp and J. Merklebach.

The Comprehensive Trails plan, part of the county’s 1996 master plan, identifies trail heads and linkages to provide the safest outdoor off-road opportunities. Workshops were held with outdoor enthusiasts, who helped map out trails throughout the county.

In other business, planners will consider:

n A proposed road abandonment of 1,840 feet of the Old State Highway 3, west of Granite Way and north of State Route 208 in the Topaz Planning Area.

n A presentation by John Singlaub, executive director of the Tahoe Regional Planning Area on the TRPA process.

The Planning Commission meets today at 1 p.m. at the courtroom at the Douglas County Administrative Building, 1616 Eighth St. in Minden.
