Truckee is located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, just west of the Nevada state line. Donner Lake is located within the Town Limits and Donner Pass over the summit of the Sierra Nevada is just west of Town. Interstate 80, the major east-west trans-Sierra ''all-weather'' highway, passes through the Town on its way between California and Nevada.
The Truckee community has existed for more than 150 years. The Town incorporated as a municipality by a vote of the people in 1993. The incorporated boundaries are nearly 34 square miles and range in elevation from 5500 feet at the Town’s eastern boundary to 7500 feet in the northwestern corner.
Historic Downtown Truckee is the core of the community, both geographically and culturally, supported by the older neighborhoods of Gateway and Donner Lake. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, Truckee expanded dramatically with the addition of the Tahoe Donner, Glenshire, Prosser Lake View, and Sierra Meadows neighborhoods. Truckee is working hard to retain its vitality as a residential and economic hub for the region while its popularity as a vacation destination and second home community continues to grow.
The Town of Truckee includes Engineering and Public Works, The Town Council, Community Development, Police Services, Animal Services, and Town Manager and Administrative Offices.
You are encouraged to contact any town employee whenever you have an idea, question, or concern. Please visit our website for a full staff listing.
