Spencer chooses county planner

Nevada County Supervisor John Spencer announced his choice for a representative to the county’s planning commission Monday, finally filling out the five-member board.

Spencer chose Paul Aguilar, who is currently a Grass Valley Planning Commission member.

Aguilar was born in Grass Valley and has been involved with the city’s planning department since 1996 as both an employee and a planning commissioner, according to a press release issued Monday. In 1999, he was awarded the Mayor’s Award for outstanding service and is currently involved with updating the city’s development code.

“Paul is extremely well qualified and possesses the skill, experience and common sense needed to ensure that future growth in our community is carefully considered and managed well,” Spencer said in the release.

Spencer also disclosed his other choices for appointments to various other county commissions.

• Jack Cramer was chosen for the Nevada County Airport Commission. Cramer is a retired automobile and motorcycle dealer and currently owns the old Gold Bowl and GRA-NEVA commercial property in Grass Valley. He has served as the president of the Grass Valley and Nevada County Chamber of Commerce and as a board member of the St. Joseph’s Cultural Center. He became a private pilot in 1948 and has owned an aircraft since 1971.

• Craig Souter was re-appointed to the Building Standards Board of Appeals and the Limited-Density Owner-Built Dwelling Board of Appeals. The boards hear and decide appeals of decisions made by the chief building inspector concerning building code interpretations.

• Adele Blackwell and Charles F. Jacobs were re-appointed to the Historical Landmarks Commission. Both have served on the commission since 1991.

• Randall Yun was selected again to serve on the Sewage Disposal Technical Advisory Group, where he has served for the past four years.
