Commissioners ask for roof redesign

Nevada County planning commissioners recently asked that the roof be redesigned on a proposed light-industrial building in Penn Valley.

A proposal for three buildings to house 13 businesses off of Cattle Drive near Highway 20 is slated to return to commissioners April 11.

The commission discussed the design at its March 14 meeting.

The commissioners’ only concern was over the mansard-style roof line, said Associate Planner Tod Herman.

Commissioners asked that the roof be redesigned to be more consistent with Penn Valley Village Center design guidelines as well as new county design guidelines.

The site is on 5.5 acres at 17310 Cattle Drive across Highway 20 from Western Gateway Park.

The three buildings’ total square footage would be 58,078.
