Board to Resume Deliberations on Orchard at Penryn Project Tuesday
December 07, 2012
The Placer County Board of Supervisors will resume its deliberations on the proposed Orchard at Penryn project during a meeting in Auburn Tuesday, Dec. 11.
Tuesday’s meeting will take place at 9 a.m. in the Board of Supervisors Chambers at the County Administrative Center, 175 Fulweiler Ave. The Orchard at Penryn is scheduled for discussion beginning at 10:15 a.m.
The board held a public hearing on the project during meetings on Oct. 11 and Nov. 6.
At the end of the Nov. 6 meeting, board members finished taking testimony from the general public and began its deliberations on two appeals of the proposed project. The board decided to postpone final action on the appeals to a later meeting after providing guidance to staff and the project applicant on potential design changes to the project.
The Orchard at Penryn project was approved by the Placer County Planning Commission on June 28, 2012. The project proposes 150 multi-family residences for a 15-acre site at the west side of Penryn Road just north of Interstate 80.
The Town of Loomis and an organization known as the Stop 150 Apartments Group filed separate appeals of that approval and the certification of the project’s final environmental impact report.
