Foothill housing sparks debate
Environmentalists opposing 5,100-home Yuba Highlands
Rob Young

Depending on decisions made next year by county supervisors, thousands
of lawn mowers instead of cattle may be gobbling up grass in the low
foothills of Yuba County before the decade ends.

The Board of Supervisors may decide by late spring or early summer
whether a 5,100-home development called Yuba Highlands will begin to
take shape on 2,900 acres northeast of Beale Air Force Base and south of
Hammonton-Smartville Road.

The process is expected to begin early next year when the county
Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors hold at least three
public hearings on an environmental impact report now being prepared by
a consultant. A draft of the report is expected in February, county
Principal Planner Peter Calarco said Friday.

Meanwhile, seven environmental groups have lined up to oppose the
project, citing arguments about the development's possible effects on
traffic, wildlife and groundwater.
