Planning for growth no crime

I plead guilty to complaining about traffic congestion and the accompanying air pollution it causes. I believe I’m not alone. It’s much easier to complain than actually do something.

For that reason, among others, I don’t want to be guilty of failing to acknowledge my gratitude to the citizen who did something more and to the Grass Valley City Council.

Steve Enos filed an appeal asking that a thorough traffic study be done by Chapa-de prior to the development of their proposed project at the corner of Sierra College Drive and East Main Street in Grass Valley.

The Grass Valley City Council wisely agreed.

Everyone who is concerned not only about traffic’s impact today, but in the future, benefits from careful and thorough planning and development.
