Planning board to discuss condos

Discussion of the proposed Walgreens pharmacy at 400 Brunswick Road likely will be continued when the Grass Valley Planning Commission meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 125 East Main St.

But commissioners are expected to discuss an application to build 24 condominiums on the 400 block of Bennett Street.

The planning commission considered the Walgreens proposal at last month’s meeting, but postponed a decision and cited several concerns they wanted the developer to address. Interra Vision Development LLC , the project’s developer, wants the continuance.

Traffic impact, the building’s location and its unmet potential for mixed use were some of the concerns.
