The Nevada County Planning Department developed this Plan to guide the review of discretionary projects for new development proposals in Western Nevada County. This plan is intended to be a tool for the Planning Department and decision-makers to work with developers to provide recreational trails consistent with a regional system. This plan also provides a framework for other trail related organizations in Western Nevada County to enhance trail opportunities and become more competitive for grant funding. The primary components of the Plan include: (1) a map depicting existing trails and identifying gaps in the regional trail system; (2) goals and policies developed through collaboration and public involvement; (3) design guidelines for trail development;, and (4) programs to implement the regional trail system. A copy of the Western Nevada County Non-Motorized Recreational Trails Master Plan ("Recreational Trails Master Plan") adopted on September 21, 2010 and other related documents is available for review and downloading.
