Supes approve Loma Rica Drive plan

A plan to turn the Loma Rica Drive area next to the Nevada County Airport into an economic development zone was approved by the Board of Supervisors Tuesday.

The plan did not select a preferred access route into the 474-acre area, which please a crowd of about 50 people who had come to voice their outrage.

They protested a proposed road off Greenhorn Road that would hook up with Loma Rica Drive, the principal access to what already is an active industrial area. Area neighbors followed one after another to say it would decrease their property values and peace.

The development plan was passed with the provision that the new access road route would be chosen in the future, if at all. Several speakers said simply widening Loma Rica Drive right after it leaves Brunswick Road would alleviate backups behind trucks on the busy industrial route.
