Board To Finish Hearing On Orchard At Penryn Project At Nov. 6 Meeting

October 12, 2012

The Placer County Board of Supervisors heard testimony from more than 20 people Thursday before deciding to complete its public hearing on the Orchard at Penryn project during a regularly scheduled meeting on Nov. 6.

The public hearing will resume at 1 p.m. on Nov. 6. The meeting will take place in the Board of Supervisors Chambers at the County Administrative Center, 175 Fulweiler Ave. in Auburn.

The board held a three-hour special meeting Thursday to conduct a public hearing on two appeals that seek to overturn Planning Commission approval of the Orchard at Penryn, a proposed 150-unit multi-family residential project. It would be built on 15 acres at the west side of Penryn Road just north of Interstate 80.

Board members decided to end the special meeting shortly before 2 p.m. Thursday because a long list of people still wanted to speak and the Placer County Air Pollution Control District was scheduled to hold a publicly noticed meeting in the Board Chambers at 2:30 p.m. Board Chairwoman Jennifer Montgomery and Vice Chair Jim Holmes needed to be at the 2:30 p.m. meeting because they serve on the Air Pollution Control District’s Board of Directors.

At the Nov. 6 meeting, the Board of Supervisors will continue hearing public testimony before deliberating on whether to uphold or overturn Planning Commission approval of the project

The commission approved the project and certified its final environmental impact report on June 28.

The appeals were filed by the Town of Loomis and an organization known as Stop 150 Apartments Group.
