Winds Aloft seeks county approval

The future of a residential development with private aircraft hangars proposed to be built adjacent to the county airport will be reviewed during a meeting of county supervisors next week.

The developer of a proposed project known as Winds Aloft filed an appeal after the planning commission took seven actions against the project in March. The commission is recommending that the supervisors deny the project’s general plan 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, May 22 in the Board Chambers of the Eric Rood Administrative Center, 950 Maidu Ave. in Nevada City.

Copies of the agenda may be obtained at the Clerk of the Board’s website at or in the Board of Supervisors’ office, second floor of the Eric Rood Center at a cost of 10 cents per page.
