Change in Donner plans

November 22, 2005|Hugo Martin

CALIFORNIA state parks officials have revised plans for a new $6-million museum at Donner Memorial State Park to ease local opposition to the project.

A previous plan to replace the 5,000-square-foot Emigrant Trail Museum on Donner Pass Road in Truckee called for a 10,000-square-foot structure on the shores of Donner Lake, served by a new paved entrance. But locals and visitors to the park complained that the structure would ruin views of the lake's 3-mile-long shoreline and create traffic problems.

The revised plan locates the new museum closer to the existing museum, says Hayden Sohm, superintendent for the Sierra district of California State Parks.
