“I’m a lumberjack and I’m OK,” as the song goes.
But is it OK to have an 11-foot-tall lumberjack statue in front of the new Lumberjacks Restaurant in Grass Valley?
The city’s development review committee will tackle the issue on Tues., Jan. 25, at City Hall. “Development Review Application (11PLN-03) for Scott Bailey to post a Lumberjack statue located at 2075 Nevada City Highway (APN 35-600-08) in the C-2 (Central Business) Zoning District.” A staff report adds: “The applicant proposes to locate the statue near the southwest end of the building within a turf area.”
I’ve dabbled in Lumberjack’s cuisine, as I’ve written before. Though partial to Ike’s and South Pine, a chicken fried steak with the “boys” there is OK once in a while. I’ve seen some local GOP Central committee members eating there, among others.
