“The Band,” a set of four 4-foot by 10-foot recycled steel sculptures are on display along Donner Pass Road in Brickelltown for public viewing and consideration ahead of the Sept. 13 Truckee Town Council meeting.


“The Band”

The public is asked to examine the sculptures and submit comments to the town by Sept. 13. “The Band” is being considered for permanent installation.

“We want to gather public input for the Council’s consideration,” said Dan Wilkins, Town Engineer/ Public Works Director, in a press release. “We received dozens of comments from the public regarding the sculptures at SR 89/ Prosser Dam Road roundabout and we’re hoping for the same or greater public input prior to the Council’s consideration of permanently displaying ‘The Band’ in Brickelltown.”

The sculptures, on loan from Mountain Forge, Inc., may be viewed at 10250 Donner Pass Road, across the street from the former Lululemon building. Click here to view the proposal from Mountain Forge.

While no removal date has been confirmed, the public is encouraged to submit comments in writing by Sept. 12 or speak during the public comment section of the Town Council meeting on Sept. 13 at 6 p.m. at 10183 Truckee Airport Road. Comments can be submitted to Wilkins via e-mail at truckee@townoftruckee.com. | townoftruckee.com
