Notice of Public MEETING



NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on Thursday, January 20, 2022 at 1:30 p.m., or as soon thereafter as the matter may be heard, the Advisory Review Committee will hold a public meeting virtually at City Hall (zoom link below), 317 Broad Street, Nevada City, California, to consider the following: 


PROJECT TITLE: Northern Queen Inn Expansion Project


PROJECT LOCATION:  400 and 402 Railroad Avenue (APN: 05-490-19, 37-050-02, and 37-050-03)


OWNER/APPLICANT: Hamid Kazemi, Heritage Hotel Group


PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The proposed project would include expansion of the Northern Queen Inn to add a new two-story, 8,400-square foot (sf) building to accommodate 20 motel units, as well as 12 new 1,050-sf cabins. The proposed additions would displace 38 existing parking spaces; however, a new gravel parking area is proposed to replace 25 of the 38 displaced spaces, and a new 20-foot driveway would lead east from the new motel building and parking area to two of the proposed cabins along Gold Run Creek. The other ten proposed cabins would be accessed from an extension of the existing driveway that currently provides access to eight existing cabins. In addition, a hammerhead turn-around and overflow parking spaces are proposed on APN 37-050-03. The project would include the removal of 15 trees and the inactive train tracks.

The proposed project would require City approval of a Variance for disturbance within the Gold Run Creek setback; Architectural Review; and a Tree Removal Permit. In addition, a Zoning Consistency finding is required by the Planning Commission regarding the extension of the Service Lodge (SL) zoning to APN 37-050-02. The Planning Commission must also approve the proposed off-site parking.

NOTICE IS FURTHER GIVEN that written comments may be filed with the City Planner during regular working hours at City Hall prior to said meeting.  Comments can be submitted to 317 Broad Street, Nevada City, CA 95959 or via email at [email protected].  A copy of the complete application is on file and is available for inspection at City Hall or review at the City’s website at and attached to the staff report.   Written comments submitted up to the day before the meeting will be provided to the Committee members.
