Mountain Springs Requests More Time For Negotiations

Sponsored by:

Sonora, Ca — The Mountain Springs Developers have requested more time to reach a compromise with the opponents, so further discussion on the project has been postponed until September 2nd by the Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors.

Currently the project would construct 897 new homes around the existing golf course. ?We are working very hard to make it work with 600 homes, which is where the opposition group would like to see it go,? says Mt. Springs Developer Ron Kopf. ?That needs to be balanced against some of the mitigation that the County was requiring. A lot of it isn´t warranted now, but at the same time, some of it is still desired.?

A vote on the Mountain Springs project was scheduled for this afternnon, but the Board voted in favor of delaying any action. Following the September 2nd Supervisors meeting, the project will likely go back to the Planning Commission for a recommendation. It would then come back to the Supervisors for public hearings and a vote.
