Input on proposed Walgreens sought

Residents have until April 16 to comment on potential environmental impacts a proposed Walgreens would have on the Glenbrook Basin area.

This week, the city’s Development Review Committee tentatively agreed that the Walgreens proposed for Brunswick Road and Sutton Way wouldn’t have a “significant environmental impact.” The city now seeks public comments on the project.

Residents wanting to comment can contact Dan Chance at 274-4333. Written comments can be delivered to Community Development Department, Planning Division, 125 E. Main St., Grass Valley, 95945.

The project calls for demolishing the former Jim Keil Chevrolet building. Jim Keil Chevrolet closed for business in July of last year.

Construction of a new 14,500-square-foot building on a nearly 99,200-square-foot site is proposed. The building would be one-story with an average height of 29 feet. It would include a drive-through pharmacy and 65 parking spaces.

Planning Director Tom Last said the committee could consider the project with the public’s comments again in late April or early May. After the committee’s potential approval, the Planning Commission would accept or reject the project.
