Winds Aloft development on supervisors’ slate

The future of a residential development proposed for land next to the county airport will be reviewed during the county supervisors meeting next week.

The developer of a proposed project known as Winds Aloft filed an appeal of seven planning commission actions taken in March. The commission is recommending that the supervisors uphold their decisions and deny the proposed general plan for the project to change 45 acres of industrial space to residential.

Supervisors will also decide whether to increase fees at the transfer station, change zoning regulations to permanently remove age and disability occupancy restrictions on second dwelling units and amend the county’s general code to allow for airport commissioner appointments outside of their supervisorial districts.

The County Board of Supervisors will meet at 9 a.m. Tuesday in the Board Chambers of the Eric Rood Administrative Center, 950 Maidu Ave. Nevada City.

Copies of the agenda may be obtained at the Clerk of the Board’s Web site at http://www.mynevada or in the Board of Supervisors’ office, second floor of the Eric Rood Center at a cost of 10 cents per page.
