The new Walgreens building in Brunswick Basin is in escrow, a lawyer for the buyer said last night at a Grass Valley City Council meeting.
The building had been listed for $13.2 million, as I reported previously.
The Council rejected a request to remove a condition requiring an easement within the Walgreen’s parking lot to allow for potential vehicle access to the CHP/DMV site located to the north, citing concerns about long-term use of the properties — not just a single real-estate transaction (AKA “city planning”).
“Open and close the public hearing, find that the approved condition
cannot be fully implemented, and delete condition of approval number 40,” is what city’s new Community Development director Tom Last recommended.
Last, you might recall, also supported an 11-foot lumberjack statue in Brunswick Basin — a recommendation that also was rejected.
It will be interesting to see how Grass Valley sets community development policy under Last, the longtime city planner who just got promoted into a vacant spot.
