Planning Commission Meeting

Event Date:
Thursday September 19, 2019
Event Time:

City Hall
317 Broad Street
Nevada City CA 95959

Planning Commission meetings are held the 3rd Thursday of each month starting at 1:30 PM in the City Council Chambers at City Hall, 317 Broad St. in Nevada City.

The City of Nevada City is conducting an update to the 2009-14 Housing Element.  The Housing Element, part of the City’s General Plan, is a policy document that addresses existing and future housing needs for all Nevada City residents and economic groups.  The State of California requires by law that the Housing Element be updated periodically, generally every four to eight years.  For this program, the City is updating the document for the 2019-2027 period.

 The City is now in the process of adopting the document through public hearings with the Planning Commission and City Council. The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on Thursday, September 19, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at 317 Broad Street, Nevada City, CA. All are invited to attend this meeting to find out more and present testimony on the subject. After the Commission recommends approval of the document, it will be reviewed and adopted by the City Council, probably during the month of October, 2019.

During a public workshop held on June 19, 2019, the public was provided and the City received public comments on the preliminary draft of the 2019-27 Draft Housing Element. That draft included public comments received during the initial public review comment period held between March 28 and June 19, 2019. The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) reviewed the draft document, and the City coordinated a number of revisions to the draft. Based on this effort, HCD determined that the document complies with all related State Housing Laws (refer to the attached letter). As noted in the letter, the City now has less than 120 days to adopt the document to fully comply with State Housing Law. The HCD Draft Version of the Housing Element can be reviewed at:
