Storage unit, office site go before city planners

The Nevada City Planning Commission will consider an after-the-fact architectural review and an application for an office building project on Providence Mine Road at its next meeting on Thursday.

It’s the second time in a month city officials have been asked to approve a building after it already has been erected.

The after-the-fact review concerns a storage unit that was built without a permit for a portion of the building at 715 Zion St. The applicants, Ed and Wanda Mertens, also submitted a sign application for the business.

Also, Campus Property Group plans to ask planning commissioners to approve its landscaping and building plans for a proposed 30,055-square-foot, two-story building at 330 Providence Rd., which is part of the Nevada City Technology Center previously approved by the City Council.

The request includes asking permission to remove 120 trees for the building project in an area where bears have been known to amble.

Planning commissioners also will review the design of a proposed mini-storage project at 13270 Gracie Rd. According to the application, the first phase of the project will include five buildings for self-storage and an office and manager’s quarters. Roy Arashi is the applicant.

The Planning Commission meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the City Hall Chambers, 317 Broad St., Nevada City.
