Supervisors Allocate Recreation Mitigation Funding

Nevada City’s Pioneer Park will be getting a much improved picnic area, and the Madelyn Helling Library will be able to build a new stage and seating area behind the library with Recreation Funding approved by the Nevada County Board of Supervisors today. Planning Director Brian Foss says AB-1600 provides for developer fees to be collected to fund recreation projects in the benefit zones which are the Grass Valley, Twin Ridges, and Nevada City areas.
