None. <br /> <br />APPROVAL OF MINUTES. <br /> <br />3.1 November 26, 1997 - Regular Meeting <br /> <br />Zoning Administrator Tony Lashbrook approved the November 26, 1997 meeting minutes. <br /> <br />PUBLIC HEARINGS. <br /> <br />4.1 <br /> <br />97-100/CUP (Conditional Use Permit); Carl Granger, owner/applicant; Staff Planner, <br />Gavin Ball. <br /> <br />Applicant Carl Granger was not present. Neighbors Cai and Eileen Boyes were both present. <br /> <br />Mr. Ball presented a brief staff report and history of the property. He mentioned that three <br />letters in opposition of this project were generated from the public notice. <br /> <br />Zoning Administrator Lashbrook clarified that the second dwelling unit was on the bottom <br />floor and Mr. Ball confirmed. <br /> <br />Mr. Lashbrook opened the public hearing. <br /> <br />Mr. Cai Boyes, second home owner at Donner Lake since 1970, explained that he notified <br />Nevada County and the Town of the illegally built and established second unit, and stated <br />that nothing was done to stop the use of this second dwelling unit. He pointed out that all <br />lots in this area are approximately 5,000 s.f. with steep slopes allowing owners to fill in the <br />unfinished floors below with second units. The roads are one lane wide with few fire <br />hydrants and are not wide enough for even Nevada County standards. He mentioned there <br />were 4 to 5 similar uses in this same area, and he expressed concern that approval of this <br />request would open the door for Mr. Granger and the rest of these illegally established units <br />with others following suit. He requested that the RI zoning be retained, and that second <br />units should be built in those areas zoned for multifamily residential. <br /> <br /> <br />
