The Placer County Board of Supervisors made quick work of Tuesday’s agenda with quick action on agenda items. The 11 o’clock item was the public hearing to discuss extending the Interim Ordinance regarding a moratorium on new applications for Community Centers. Those speaking to extend the moratorium for purposes of working out details for a permanent ordinance were surprised the Board acted so swiftly to grant the extension for 22-months but they did with a unanimous vote. Now the Planning Commission and concerned citizens have their work cut out for them to design an ordinance. Susan Ames is a neighbor of Gold Hill Gardens who received the last approval from the Board for a Community Center Designation before the moratorium. She says she is not against community Centers but believes an ordinance fitting for the land use iis needed.
The group behind save placer county farm land’s facebook page says they don’t want to stop growth but they want to be able to manage growth while preserving agricultural interests.
The moratorium was requested by Supervisor Doran after citizens came out in force to voice their concerns about what such a designation could do to their neighborhoods.
