‘Public member’ applicants sought

The Grass Valley Community Development Department is seeking applicants for the “public member” spot on the City’s Development Code Update Committee.

The public member will join members of the City Council, the Planning Commission, the Grass Valley Downtown Association, and the Nevada County Contractor’s Association to help prepare and review the City’s Development Code. The code is composed of the zoning ordinance, subdivision ordinance and the City’s environmental review guidelines.

The City’s existing Zoning Ordinance was originally adopted in December 1965 and has been updated by numerous amendments and is in need of a comprehensive update, according to a press release issued Thursday by Clerk-Recorder Bobbi Poznik-Coover.

The goal is to update the Code and incorporate current state and federal laws, as well as, policies from the Grass Valley’s General Plan.

The public member will help review the draft provisions and provide feedback to the consultant team before the document is released to the public for consideration. It is estimated that there will be a minimum of three committee meetings and other workshops, that will be held over a period of nine months to a year.

To apply, submit a letter of interest before Feb. 1 to Tom Last, Planning Director at Grass Valley City Hall. Applicants should include their qualifications and background information. The City Council will select the public member.

Further inquiries concerning the Development Code should be directed to Tom Last, planning director, at 274-4711.
