Grass Valley has contended the airport land use plan interfered with its planning for Loma Rica, located one and a half miles east of downtown. Grass Valley says the 452-acre site will be developed as a show piece of smart growth with homes, parks and shops.
Details of the settlement will be made public when the agreement wins formal approval.
