Soda Springs Area Plan
Published on: 4/6/2014 12:00 AM
Board of Supervisors Action

On October 25, 2016, the Nevada County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a new Area Plan for the community of Soda Springs and surrounding Donner Summit area.  The Area Plan outlines a comprehensive and consensus-built development plan with a central focus to offset the economic seasonality of Soda Springs and attract more visitors and business investment for improved prosperity and sustainability, while honoring residents’ values and protecting the bountiful natural environment.  The Planning Department worked closely with the engaged community for two years to craft the Area Plan and many local residents and business owners attended the Board meeting and spoke in support of the Plan, a truly collaborative project and a good sign for the future of Donner Summit.

The Soda Springs Area Plan Negative Declaration Resolution (No. 16-518), General Plan Amendment Resolution (No. 16-519), General Plan Land Use Amendment Resolution (No. 16-520), Zoning District Map Amendment Ordinance (No. 2422), and Zoning Ordinance Amendment Ordinance (No. 2423) are available to download. 
Planning Commission Hearing
On August 25, 2016, the Nevada County Planning Commission voted 4-0 (1 absent) to recommend the Board of Supervisors approve the Soda Springs Area Plan.  The Planning Commission staff report may be downloaded or is available for review at the Nevada County Planning Department, 950 Maidu Ave. Suite 170, Nevada City, CA.
