Protest changing of R1 neighborhood zoning

(Regarding the drug and alcohol treatment center’s proposal to go in on Cedar Avenue): The Planning Commission will vote on Nov. 14 about a zoning change in R1 neighborhoods to allow drug and alcohol treatment centers.

We cannot allow this change in our R1 neighborhoods. If this passes, all of Nevada County’s neighborhoods could have these facilities next door or down the street from their homes. CC&Rs or deed restrictions do not protect us. Therefore, we rely on our district representatives to keep our neighborhood zoning R1, as it should be.

Knowledge is power. Wake up, Nevada County! How our Planning Commission votes, if you live in R1, will change the quality of your neighborhood and property values for a very long time. People should not be able to petition a zoning change to fit their personal and/or financial gains.
