Update of Rise Grading Violations


The grading work that was done was reportedly not in conformance with the submitted plans, resulting in failed inspections failing in December/January. In addition to failing to protect against storm runoff into South Fork Wolf Creek, grading work was done in violation of the 100′ setback from the creek and a large number of trees had been logged and staged within the setback. Because of these violations and encroachment into the setback zone, a comprehensive Management Plan, to be prepared by a qualified biologist, was requested. (as per Nevada County Land Use and Development Code Section L-II 4..3.17.) County reported back that RISE must submit revised plans showing accurate depiction of work completed, erosion control measures, 100ft setback, and site survey. This submission and a biologist recommendations will be reviewed by county.
