Grass Valley planning senior apartments, housing

The Grass Valley Planning Commission will meet Tuesday to review a proposal to subdivide a 14-acre parcel on East Main Street into single-family homes and 160 senior apartment units.

The project includes a 3,300-square-foot community building and a 2,350 square-foot senior center building with common area and open space.

The project includes covered and open parking for the senior units.

It also includes extending Joerschke Drive from East Main Street west to Sierra College.

No action is expected to be taken at the meeting, which is Tuesday evening at 7 p.m.

The project is being considered as the Northern Queen Inn in Nevada City is proposing converting some of its motel rooms to senior apartments.

The demographics of the area’s aging population is resonating with developers.

Grass Valley also is home to Eskaton, a major senior housing project, which includes homes and assisted living.
