New Vision For Old Airport

The Old Airport in Nevada City will soon have a visual representation of what the land may be used for in the future. The city has been trying to decide what to do with the vacant property for several years. Many ideas have been discussed and a list of elements was developed. In March city council directed staff to identify a a consultant to create a visual design of what can be done. The biggest element is a solar farm. A representative from the Nevada City 100% Renewables Committee says the solar farm will take less space than originally estimated.
