Supervisors Approve Housing Project And Fire Contract

Sonora, CA — The Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors has approved a new 16 lot housing subdivision near Tulloch Reservoir.

The property at 15650 New Peoria Flat Rd. is owned by Steve and Marta Weinstein of Jamestown. The housing lots will range from 10-24 acres in size. The final vote was 3-1-1, with Board Chair Teri Murrison voting against and Supervisor Paolo Maffei choosing to abstain. Concerns were raised about the property being changed from agricultural use to residential. The project had been voted down by the Agricultural Advisory Committee, but recommended by the Planning Commission.

The Supervisors also unanimously approved the annual agreement with CAL Fire for year round protection. The agreement is to not exceed $2.29 million for the current fiscal period.
