City Council to review Ridge Village project

The traffic that would be created by a development proposed for Ridge Road will be addressed during a meeting of the Grass Valley City Council, which starts at 7 p.m. today.

A revised preliminary overview plan was submitted to the council by developers of the Ridge Village and Ridge Meadows projects on Nov. 8.

The Ridge Village project proposes to build 49 single-family houses on 10 acres at the corner of Ridge and Slate Creek roads. Ridge Meadows is a plan for 49 houses north of Ridge Road, part of it bordering on Upper Slate Creek Road.

The new plan sketches adjustments being suggested for Ridge Road from Hughes to Slate Creek roads to address public safety concerns. Both subdivisions will be responsible for improvements, according to the plan.

Improvements include the widening of Ridge Road, access to various driveways on Ridge Road and the continuation of the center turning lane beyond the housing projects.

A traffic engineer determined a three-way stop sign is not needed at Ridge and Slate Creek roads.

In addition, the developer has included two models of houses smaller than 1,000 square feet; the park space has been changed to open space with a trail; and the detention basin would be larger.

Other topics the City Council will discuss include:

• Allowing dogs in Condon Park on a trial basis.

• Reviewing a contract with the consultant doing the environmental impact report on the Idaho-Maryland Mining Corp. project.

• Refunding $380 that resident Steve Enos paid to appeal the city Planning Commission’s decision to approve a use permit for Hospitality House.
