The single most important objective of this study is to produce a guidance document for planners and engineers involved in designing the replacement structures in the downtown. This document will provide the criteria and themes that reflect the City of Reno’s vision for interacting with the Truckee River and the downtown core.
In addition, it is the City’s goal to conduct a process that is collaborative with all interested parties, and blends the needs and ideas of the community as a whole. The "vision" must also be feasible. The concepts and ideas must be constructible within the parameters of what is possible to design and build, while meeting rigorous safety standards.
