Commission will review Sierra Terrace

A 28-unit multifamily development off East Main Street is headed to the Grass Valley Planning Commission for review, Planning Director Tom Last said Tuesday.

The development, called Sierra Terrace, proposes a mix of duplexes, fourplexes, and apartments on a 2.3 acre lot on Berryhill Drive. The units range from 800 to 1,250 square feet and each has a single garage.

Matson Creek currently flows through the property in a culvert, and it would remain encased, in accordance with the city’s drainage plans.

Planning Commissioner Gloria Hyde said the creek’s encasement was a “non-issue.”

A traffic study concluded the project would generate 167 daily vehicle trips, a count that falls below the city’s trigger for traffic controls.

The site contains mining wastes, which will be removed prior to construction.

Last said the project could appear before the Planning Commission in mid-March.
