The Truckee Town Council announced Jeff Loux as their choice for Truckee’s new town manager this week. Loux brings more than 30 years of management and leadership experience and an extensive background in planning and environmental and land use policy.


“Jeff has an amazing diversity of skills and experiences that will benefit Truckee,” said Truckee Mayor Morgan Goodwin. “He is already bringing leadership to our locals’ housing crisis, climate change action, transportation, and more.”

Loux holds a doctorate of philosophy in Environmental Planning from UC Berkeley, a Master of Science in Geography from UCLA, and a Bachelor’s Degree from UC Santa Barbara. His experiences across California include: community development director of Truckee and the City of Davis, assistant planning director for Santa Cruz County and associate dean and director of Land Use and Natural Resources at UC Davis. Loux is also the author of several books on water, land use planning, and natural resource management.

“I am deeply grateful and very excited to have the opportunity to become Truckee’s third town manager,” Loux said. “We have some challenges, but we also have extraordinary opportunities to keep Truckee moving in inspiring directions.”

The Town enlisted assistance from the consultant firm Peckham & McKenney to recruit for the position, resulting in 56 candidates from across the country vying for it.

Loux will begin his tenure on August 4, 2017.
