Notice is hereby given that the Advisory Review Committee will hold a meeting on Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. at City Hall, 317 Broad St., Nevada City, California, to review the following application:

PROJECT:   A proposed multi-use trail construction project within the Nevada City limits on a 30.52-acre open space parcel (APN 36-020-26) that encompasses all but the northern flank of Sugarloaf Mountain, with easements through two private parcels (APNs 53-310-09 & 53-310-10) and along the right-of-way of State Highway 49. The goal of the trail project is to connect downtown Nevada City to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain. The trail route will be approximately one mile in length. It will commence at the corner of State Highway 49 and North Bloomfield Road, and terminate at a point along an existing gravel access road that goes to the top of Sugarloaf from an entrance on upper Coyote Street.  The new trail will also connect to an existing graveled excavated area, approximately 0.10 acre in size that will be improved to accommodate trail parking for approximately eight vehicles. The parking area will connect via an existing informal, user-created trail, which will be minimally improved (brush clearing and tread improvement for drainage and loose rock removal). The project will also incorporate minor improvements to an existing user-created trail along the eastern side of the City-owned property. The proposed trail also offers connection to Hirschman Trail and Tobiassen Park via a recently established County trail that runs west from North Bloomfield Road to the Nevada County Government Center.

Anticipated Action: Recommendation to Planning Commission of project application and recommendation on the prepared environmental document, an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) pursuant to Government Code Section 15332, CEQA Guidelines).

 A copy of the recommended Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration is available for review at the City’s website at
