Grass Valley to review proposed motorcycle, ATV, UTV sale and repair shop in Glenbrook Basin

A new motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle shop might soon be coming to Grass Valley.

The Grass Valley Planning Commission on today is set to decide on a use permit application for a new motorcycle, all-terrain vehicle, and utility task vehicle repair and sales store in the Glenbrook Basin.

The applicants, listed as Lance and Jennah McIntosh, requested to operate an existing 3,150-square-foot building containing two rooms at 148 Olympia Park Road. The area where the shop would be located is zoned for central business district/commercial.

“The retail aspect of it is an allowed use of its zone,” said Grass Valley Senior Planner Lance Lowe. “The motorcycle repair is the one that requires a use permit.”

According to a staff report, one room in the building will be used for the sale of riding gear, clothing and parts. A second room would be used for minor repairs and servicing of dirt bikes, street bikes, quads, all-terrain vehicles and utility task vehicles.

The applicant has also proposed to display motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, and utility task vehicles along the south side of the structure.

A previously approved monopine camouflage cell tower is located at the southwest corner of the property. If approved, the permit application will be valid for four years.

Also on today, commissioners will review a proposal to divide a 1.68-acre parcel into four parcels ranging from 7,706 square feet to 38,853 square feet. The parcel, owned by Michael Wilkie, is located at 258 Jill Road and 347 Hill St.
