County general plan forum tonight

If you have been wanting to give the county a piece of your mind, now is your chance.

Nevada County Board of Supervisors and the Planning Commission will meet tonight at Town Hall to discuss a 5-year update to the county general plan.

County officials would like input from Truckee residents on subjects that should be reviewed in the scope of the general plan.

The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. tonight at Town Hall.

“You have to review your general plan every 10 years,” said Barbara Green, 5th district supervisor for Nevada County. “So we are involving the public before we go to our staff.”

The meeting will begin with a review of the planning staff report. Public testimony will be held next.

What will be discussed?

“What is the expected impact of the county’s general plan update in the eastern end of the county,” said Tony Lashbrook, the town’s community development director.

Green suggested that new laws or regulations might also be subjects of discussion.

The county’s sphere of influence outside the town’s boundaries, or how the influence may change is one matter that town and county planners may discuss.

“We need to look at new approaches of affordable housing and rehabilitating older buildings,” Green added.

According to the agenda, the meeting will conclude with the Board of Supervisors directing planning staff to regard changes to the draft scope and to have staff report back with a specific work program, including funding requirements, for updating the general plan.
