Idaho-Maryland Mine EIR out next month

Grass Valley planning commission members set a date for 2 p.m.. Oct. 21 to visit the Idaho-Maryland Mine, after which a regular Planning Commission meeting will

be held at 7 p.m. at City Hall.

The long-awaited environmental impact report for the mine will be ready

sometime in October, with a 45-day public review scheduled before any

Planning Commission or City Council votes are cast.

At Tuesday night’s commission meeting, commissioners also enthusiastically embraced the proposed Gold Country Village, though they took no vote on the matter.

The village would have 160 apartments and 15 home lots on 15 acres on East Main Street, according to developer Zach Stamas of Roseville.

The village also would include a new home for the Nevada County Gold Country

Community Center senior building at the Fairgrounds, which is losing its lease and has been looking for a new home for months.

The city has been working with Stamas and the existing senior center to create a new home for the center within his project, Planning Director Tom Last said.

³The senior center there will be a nice fit,² Stamas said.
