BriarPatch site comes before council

The Grass Valley City Council is expected to rule tonight on whether the BriarPatch Community Market will be allowed to build a new and expanded store.

The market’s proposal to build a store with adjoining retail shops on Litton Hill has been rejected by the city’s Planning Commission because of traffic concerns.

The market has appealed the decision, saying that the busiest times on Sierra College Drive are not the hours that most people go grocery shopping. Organizers of the co-op plan also contend that a larger store will benefit the community by not only serving as a hub for the area, but also as a source of new jobs and tax revenue for the city.

The meeting is tonight at 7 p.m. at the City Hall,125 E. Main St. in Grass Valley.
