Nevada County LAFCo Staff Proposes Sweeping Reduction of Nevada City's Sphere of Influence Boundary
Posted on Tuesday February 14, 2017
Nevada County Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) Officer SR Jones is recommending a substantial reduction of the LAFCo-approved Sphere of Influence (SOI) boundary for Nevada City.
One of the reasons Nevada City enjoys such a special reputation is because of the community's sense of place. Nevada City's "essence" as a small, compact, historic town surrounded by green, wooded hills is embodied in the City's General Plan. Numerous concerns have been raised with the LAFCo staff-developed proposal. Please click here to learn more about the issue.

The City Council invites you to participate in the discussion by sending your thoughts on the matter to City Manager Mark Prestwich via email ( or to the address below:
