Document Description
The project is an update to the Nevada City Sphere of Influence (SOI) and includes four project alternatives: LAF Co/City Consensus Preferred Alternative, Original LAFCo Staff Recommendation Alternative, City Recommendation Alternative, and the No Project Alternative. The current SOI occupies approx 2,702 acres and the city occupies approx 1,470 acres, totaling approx 4,172 acres. The SOI Update includes no lands within the existing city boundaries. The annexation would allow for extension of City services but does not include any physical alterations or improvements to any area. No infrastructure extensions, new residential, commercial, industrial or other developments are proposed. The SOI update does not include any changes to existing land uses, land use designation, or zoning.
