Document Description
Residential Development The proposed project site is designed to be a rural residential subdivision within a working commercial vineyard. Single-family residences will be situated amid the vineyards and will be constructed with a consistent architectural theme. Each home will be desgned in a European/Mediterranean architectural style consistent with a vineyard-themed setting. Large lots and clustering techniques will be utilized in accordance with the Nevada County General Plan Directive - Policy 1.18, which will allow the project to retain roughly 85 percent of the existing vineyard land for continued agricultural use. Future Winery and Tasting Room The applicant is considering plans to create a third party entity to develop and operate a potential commercial winery with attached tasting room on a separate parcel within the project. The potential winery and tasting room would each front along Indian Springs Road and have dedicated parking.
