Planning Commission Recommends Placer Vineyards
January 26, 2007
By a 6-0 vote on Thursday, the Placer County Planning Commission recommended development of the Placer Vineyards project slated for south western Placer County.
The Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing and make the final decision later this year.
Placer Vineyards is proposed as a mixed-use community including residential, retail commercial and other uses, as well as public facilities such as parks, schools, and open space. The Planning Commission agreed to the applicant’s proposal, which could provide a maximum of 14,132 residential units at project buildout in 20-30 years, serving a population of approximately 32,800 people.
The proposal also includes space for commerce, parks, open space, public facilities such as schools and roadways and off street trails to provide community connections.
If approved by the Board of Supervisors, the Placer Vineyards project would be built at the southwest corner of Placer County, generally bounded by Baseline Roadon the north, the Sacramento Countyborder on the south, the Sutter Countyborder on the west and Walerga Roadand Dry Creek on the east. The proposed project includes approximately 5,230 acres (about eight square miles) and stretches about six miles from east to west.
