Every time I drive home through the strip malls

Every time I drive home through the strip malls along Highway 49 in Auburn, I thank God I live in Nevada County and pray we don’t grow the way Placer County did. I’ve read that Nevada County will add 40,000 residents in the next 20 years. Will our quality of life survive this influx of new neighbors?

Izzy Martin is fighting sprawl and uncontrolled development. Izzy’s been a planning commissioner and supervisor for the last eight years so she has the experience we’ll need to fight Placer County-style growth in the future. That’s why I’m supporting Izzy Martin for supervisor.
