Planning Commission to consider cooking school

The Nevada City Planning Commission will hold a public hearing today to consider an application for a cooking school in a house on Zion Street.

In her application to convert the 960-square-foot home into a cooking school called the Kitchen, Wendy Van Wagner of Nevada City proposes holding small classes daily at the school. The average class size would be three students, according to her proposal.

The home, which is north of the former Miners Community Clinic is located in an area zoned for offices and professional businesses. It has five off-street parking spaces.

Van Wagner also wants to hang a 30-inch-by-36-inch sign in front of the home at 648 Zion St.

The city’s planning staff has recommended that the requests be approved.

The commission also will consider:

• A request for a sign for an insurance business at 715 Zion Street by Ed and Wanda Mertens.

• A use-permit application by Gary and Patty Anawalt to retain a ground-level office at 206 Main St., which is where Mackey Real Estate was located for 25 years before moving this year.
