A proposal for a 150-space RV park located in Grass Valley, California, will be considered in a public hearing at the regular Grass Valley City Council meeting on January 25.

According to a report, the 20-acre RV park resort project is just across the street from an established RV park located at the Nevada County Fairgrounds, 11228 McCourtney Road. Spaces are available for rental at $70 per night for a period not exceeding 30 days, and they are also subject to temporary occupancy tax.

It will also have 15 glamping areas, camping in a pop-up camper, or unique shelters like a yurt, tepee, dome, or safari-style tent accommodations.

The proposal was presented to the Planning Commission at its November 16 meeting, followed by the December 8 meeting on the site. At their meeting on December 21, planning commissioners endorsed the proposal to the City Council with a vote of 4-to-1.

The proposal, lodged by Rob Wood, principal at Millennium Planning and Engineering, will include water and sewer hookups to Grass Valley. If approved, those who choose to connect with the city’s system have to pay for the hookup fee. Currently, the homes and offices have separate septic tank systems.

The property is outside city limits in unincorporated Nevada County. The plan proposes incorporating the property into the city with another 25 acres. This is because this proposed RV park would constitute an isolated property, while the total annexation of 45 acres will create a contiguous city boundary.

The annexation process must have the approval of the Local Agency Formation Commission, an agency mandated by the state that supervises boundary changes for special districts and cities.

“There was not a lot of concern with annexation because the proposed zone would be more beneficial than the current office/professional,” Principal Planner Lance Lowe said. “And the possible impacts of added traffic, noise, were addressed through prepared traffic and acoustical studies.”

“This site is fulfilling a need for recreational users in the area,” Lowe added.

“The city looks on it as being consistent with the city’s general plan of office/professional, what it is now. We’ve evaluated the project from an aesthetic perspective, commercial design standards, infrastructure, landscaping, and all are in keeping with the city’s general plan.”

The property is currently zoned as an office/professional. However, the city has proposed a neighborhood flex/mixed-use, including different housing options and alternatives to car transport.
