Public Hearing – Notice of Public Hearing for Discussion PURSUANT TO GOVERNMENT CODE §25123(d), §25126, §25131 TO Amend Urgency Ordinance 21-1140, Concerning Emergency Interim Housing during Recovery from the Dixie Fire and Beckwourth Complex Fire, previously adopted October 28, 2021.
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Plumas County Board of Supervisors will conduct a public hearing on November 1, 2022, at 10:00AM at 520 Main Street, Room 308, Board of Supervisors Chambers in order to discuss the proposed amendment of Urgency Ordinance 21-1140 concerning emergency interim housing during recovery from the Dixie Fire and Beckwourth Complex Fire.
Urgency Ordinance 21-1140 was enacted for the purpose of temporarily modifying various regulations in Title 9, Planning and Zoning, of the Plumas County Code to allow the fastest possible transition of residents made homeless or displaced due to the wildfires in Plumas County to emergency interim housing.
As Plumas County continues to engage in long-term fire recovery efforts, the need for “Basecamps” or sites for the purpose of providing workforce housing for wildfire recovery efforts are in demand.
The proposed Urgency Ordinance amendment provides for Basecamps on parcels 9 acres or more in size on Greenville Wolf Creek Road, Town of Greenville, excluding parcels zoned GF (General Forest), TPZ (Timberland Production Zone), and Rec-OS (Recreation-Open Space).
Further, the proposed amendment states Basecamps on parcels on Greenville Wolf Creek Road, Town of Greenville, within 300 feet of an occupied residence will maintain quiet hours from 10 pm to 7 am seven days a week and all outdoor lighting will be located, adequately shielded, and directed such that no direct light falls outside the property line, or into the public right-of-way in accordance with Plumas County Code Section 9-2.411 (Lighting facilities).
The Urgency Ordinance amendment also proposes to provide the Planning Director with discretion as to allow Basecamps in additional zones, on a case-by-case basis, if it is determined the Basecamp use is not inconsistent with zoning or the current use of the parcel and surrounding properties, and such parcels will be subject to additional restrictions as determined by the Planning Director.
