STOP The LAFCO Proposal to Increase Commercial Development In Nevada City

When:
February 23, 2017 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am
2017-02-23T09:30:00-08:00

Where:
Rood Center

ATTENTION NEVADA CITY AND SURROUNDING NEIGHBORS! VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION.

OUR SPHERE OF INFLUENCE IS BEING THREATENED.

The Sphere of Influence applies to Nevada City in its relationship to the county. All the 2,900 acres of property that surrounds city boundaries is called the Sphere of Influence. It is this Sphere of Influence that a buffer zone is created not just for the city of Nevada City but for the surrounding homeowners and property owners who actually live in the county. It is this buffer zone that protects the city and surrounding neighborhoods from unwanted development including commercial development (expect more Dollar General Stores to pop up in the outskirts of Nevada City if this passes). LAFCO is proposing we reduce this buffer by 1,348 acres of its current size! This is a massive and very aggressive proposal, endangering the well being of the city and the neighborhoods we all live in!

You and all of your neighbors are losing the city’s protection. Many of you and your neighbors will no longer have that “firewall” of protection from Nevada City if this LAFCO proposal goes through as is! There is a public workshop at the Rood Center, Thursday the 23rd starting at 9:30am! Get everyone to show up!

PLEASE SHARE FAR AND WIDE. THIS IS A REAL THREAT FOR NEVADA CITY, ITS SURROUNDING NEIGHBORS AND OUR FUTURE.
