AUBURN CA - A seniors development proposed for South Nevada County is on tap to reach the Nevada County Planning Commission Thursday. The Rincon del Rio project’s environmental impact report is to be considered during a public hearing scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Thursday, March 8 in the Board Chambers of the Eric Rood Administrative Center at 950 Maidu Ave., Nevada City. The project borders Placer County and is just south of Lake of the Pines. Plans call for 345 detached or attached residences and 415 residents on the 210-acre property, located off Rincon Way and fronting the Bear River. Current zoning allows 72 single-family dwellings. Buildings would be clustered within a 40-acre area on the western half of the site. The other 170 acres are to be retained as open space. – Journal Staff Report
