City Council approves new apartment complex

By TIM WILLIS

Opponents of a “high quality” apartment complex proposed for Big Cut Road failed to get enough Placerville City Council votes to prevent it. despite their charges that its density was too high.

The council voted 3-2 to uphold the Planning Commission’s approval of the site plan review. The decision came Tuesday night, when nearly 100 people attended the council meeting to watch and debate the issue.

Early last month when the Planning Commission deliberated the project, which calls for a 13-unit apartment complex between Big Cut Road and Benham Court, it met no resistance from the public.

Improvements at the Ohio House

The new proprietors of the Ohio House intend to expend a large sum of money in renovating and improving that property, and they are anxious to have Main and Sacramento streets macadamized in front of the premises. In order to have this done they offered to furnish any kind of crushed rock the city might name, on cars at the depot free of charge.
