Nevada City, CA
Tentative Map -The Grove
Project Description: Application for a tentative Final Map to subdivide a 12.97 acre portion of a 19.57acre parcel into 59 individual lots in two development phases including 12 second units to conform to the applicant’s affordable housing plan. Development Phase 1 proposes the creation of the 15 “large-lot” single-family lots, to be sold as undeveloped lots suitable for custom homes, along with supporting infrastructure improvements. Of these 15 lots, 8 and 4 cottages are proposed to incorporate a second dwelling in order to comply with the Affordable Housing Plan. Development Phase 1 will also include mine waste remediation associated with a Removal Action Work Plan (RAW), all site preparation, grading and road and utility installation of the entire 12.9 acres.  Development Phase 2 will encompass the development of 32 clustered townhouse units along with 12 clustered single-family lots and supporting infrastructure.  The clustered housing units and condominium units will be developed by the applicant and will include four floor plan variations and sizes. The total number of housing units for both phases, including single-family, multi-family and second dwelling units amounts to 71 units, an approximate 5% housing increase in the City’s housing stock.  

Project Status: This project was approved by the planning commission  in July 2017. However, the tentative map expired 24 months from the date of approval and a request for tentative map extension was not timely filed.  The applicant  has not changed any aspect of the application. However, a comprehensive update to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines went into effect in January 2019 and requires the City, acting as the lead agency, to evaluate the application in light of this update. See applicant statement here.

Environmental Document: Staff is recommending adoption of a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) for this project. Please click on the link to view the Initial Study/MND adopted in 2017.
