Alternative 2 proposal for re – development of the West River Street property

.

By Michelle Portesi

As most everyone knows, the Town of Truckee during recent years has been working diligently to upgrade infrastructure and develop public use projects. We’ve written here quite a bit about these projects, including:

The Mini Mouse Hole on Highway 89 (mostly completed) yourfriendinhighplaces.net/2016/09/15/truckees-mini-mousehole/

The Legacy Trail – yourfriendinhighplaces.net/2014/09/25/legacy-trail-connects-downtown-truckee-and-glenshire/

And Brickelltown’s Makeover – yourfriendinhighplaces.net/2016/07/08/truckees-brickelltown-is-getting-a-makeover/

Last summer, a lot was accomplished in Brickelltown, with additional parking spaces, road improvements,  walkways and gathering spots added. Now The Town of Truckee is revisiting a re-development project on West River Street that had been put on the back burner when the economy hit the skids several years ago.

The area in question is a vacant lot along the Truckee River. Present proposals include a public plaza with river access and possible restaurant building. This would certainly be a much desired addition to Downtown Truckee, creating a much more centralized gathering place for the community adjacent to retail and dining. You can read more about the proposals in the Sierra Sun.

To participate or just stay informed, you can also keep up on any scheduled community workshops on this project on this Town of Truckee’s page and any progress on the project on this page. www.townoftruckee.com/government/town-manager/economic-development/west-river-site-project

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words…   Leave a comment

By Michelle Portesi

We here at ‘Your Friend in High Places’ have talked a lot about the importance of sprucing up your house and yard along with good staging when trying to sell your property. We haven’t however, discussed the importance of taking good real estate photos after you’ve put in all that elbow grease and effort.

As the saying goes, A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words. Nothing gives a potential buyer a more enticing incentive to call about seeing more of your property or a sense of your home’s features than good photos.

So when I ran across this website of ‘Epic Real Estate Photo Fails’, not only did I get a good laugh out of it, but they were certainly prime examples of what NOT to do.
For your viewing enjoyment, here are a few examples:

.

pool-in-living-room-58b8bb323df78c353c0c730f (1)

One Question Remains…WHHHHYYYYYY? Is this ‘indoor pool’ considered a feature?

.

pig-58b8bb775f9b58af5c79135f

Really? A pig AND a piano? I’m rather confused as to this room’s actual intended use.

I’m not sure how they managed to do this, but it feels vaguely like the photo equivalent of one of those cubist Picasso paintings.

For more photo amusement, some of which were in such poor taste I didn’t dare post them here, go to this website: https://www.thoughtco.com/hilariously-terrible-real-estate-photos-1924229

…and then call Lynn Richardson, Your Friend in High Places. She would NEVER take photos like these to sell your home!
