Grass Valley to review General Plan tonight

Grass Valley’s General Plan is 5 years old – and standing in the way of some projects that developers have slated for land within the city limits.

A public workshop to review the General Plan and discuss changing it will be held at 6 p.m. tonight in council chambers at Grass Valley City Hall.

“We’re reviewing the General Plan, the adoption process, the status of it in the five years it’s been implemented, talk a little bit about the future vision for the community and allow for some public input,” said city community development director Joe Heckel.

The workshop will include a review of the Southhill Village, Loma Rica, Northstar and Kenny Ranch projects and how they conform or fail to conform to the General Plan.

Developers of the Southhill Village project have modified their plans to conform to the General Plan. Developers of the remaining project have said they would like to see changes to the General Plan.

The projects are called special development areas. City staff will explain the projects, the planning process and options for changing the General Plan.

Developers, contractors and skeptics of the projects are expected to attend.
