The project manager for the study will be available from 10 a.m. to noon to go over the study with the public and to answer any questions. Public comments are welcomed and encouraged during the review process.

Chapters of the study under discussion for this meeting include Parks, Water System, Wastewater System, Drainage, Administrative and General Government, Traffic and Circulation Improvements.

Draft copies of the six chapters under discussion of the Development Impact Fee Study are available for review during business hours at Grass Valley City Hall and at online. If you have any questions about the Development Impact Fee Study, please contact the Finance Department at 274-4300.
