Sutter Creek Continues To Update The City's General Plan 

The Sutter Creek City Council continued its work on updating the city’s general plan last night with a detailed look at the land use map that will govern development in the city going into the future. The council examined a series of proposed changes in the land use element of the general plan. The land use map designates what kind of development will be allowed in a certain area, such as commercial or residential building, it also sets the intensity of the use, such as single-family or multi-family residences, and light and heavy industrial. The council examined a series of parcels where problems existed, such as a land use designation that didn’t meet the existing building, or disagreements between the general plan and zoning code on how a parcel is to be developed, and discussed the land use best suited for the property and to correct any problems. Individual land owners will be informed by mail of any changes to their properties; as such changes can drastically affect land values. Earlier in the meeting, the council approved an appeal of a site plan, agreeing to a developer’s request that a proposed RV storage facility on Eureka Road not be required to pave its entire parking area, citing concerns over storm water run-off resulting from paving the large lot.
