BOS Rejects Tierra Robles Housing Development

After a unanimous recommendation by the Shasta County Planning Commission in April, a proposed housing development in the Palo Cedro area has been denied by the Board of Supervisors. Opponents packed the supervisors chambers Thursday to speak out against the Tierra Robles Development, which would have been 166 homes on 715 acres accessed by Old Alturas Road and Boyle Road. One of the primary concerns brought by neighbors is the water supply, and a presentation made by the Bella Vista Water District did not bring much hope for those concerns, saying that the EIR used incorrect methodology in water availability, and pointing out that the District is getting no water from the Bureau of Reclamation this year. Other concerns include fire danger and traffic, particularly a lack of sufficient egress in the event of a large fire, as citizens recalled the nightmare of the Camp Fire. In the end, the board listened to the concerns of neighbors and unanimously rejected the proposal.
