 The Placer County Board of Supervisors agreed Tuesday to postpone a public hearing on the Orchard at Penryn project until Thursday, Oct 11.

The Oct. 11 hearing on the proposed 150-unit multi-family residential project is scheduled to take place at 10:30 a.m. in the Board of Supervisors Chambers at the County Administrative Center, 175 Fulweiler Ave. in Auburn.

The focus of the public hearing will be an appeal that seeks to overturn the Placer County Planning Commission’s approval of the project on June 28. At the meeting, commissioners also certified the project’s final environmental impact report.

The appeal was filed by the Town of Loomis and an organization known as Stop 150 Apartments Group. The latter asked the Board of Supervisors to postpone Tuesday’s public hearing because one of the five board members was unable to attend the meeting.

Penryn Development LLC, the property owner, and the Town of Loomis informed Placer County they did not oppose postponing the public hearing.

The Orchard at Penryn would be built on 15 acres at the west side of Penryn Road just north of Interstate 80.
