UPDATE ON HIDDEN FALLS - PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDS EXPANSION
After a 5-hour long meeting the Placer County Planning Commission recommended to the Placer County Board of Supervisors Approval of the supplemental environmental impact report for Hidden Falls expansion and the conditional use permit, establishing the rules and regulations to develop the park over the next 10 years.
The Commission voted 5 yes on the SEIR and 1 abstention and voted 5 YES on the conditional use permit and one No.
If approved by the Board of Supervisors, the first phase would be the construction of the Twilight ride parking area off of Bell road, with automobile parking and 10 horse trailer spaces this would open up 2,500 acres and 30 miles of trails all the way to the Bear River. (Nevada/Placer County line)
The County received a $3 million grant from the State to go towards building the parking if the project is approved.
Want to thank everyone who sent emails or letters to the Planning Commission. The Public process can be long and arduous. Perseverance pays off.
Mother Lode Trails supports this expansion of Hidden Falls Regional Park which will provide thousands of acres of protected open space and miles of public trails for our citizens.
