Public to speak on Forest Meadows



Calaveras County Supervisors could pave the way for more development in the Forest Meadows subdivision east of Murphys this time 24 townhouses, a pool and tennis courts.

Last month, supervisors put their stamp of approval on plans to build 313 new houses on 276 acres in the subdivision.

After a public hearing scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Monday, supervisors will vote on rezoning a 3.35 acre parcel from recreation to multi-family residential. Also, supervisors could decide to subdivide that land into 24 lots for townhouses. A pool and tennis courts would be built close by.

The development would happen on the south side of Forest Meadows

Drive just west of Buckthorn Drive.

Supervisors will also be asked to sign an agreement with the Calaveras Community Foundation to help raise money for a new county animal shelter.

The Calaveras Community Foundation is a nonprofit organization that facilitates charitable giving by individuals, companies and community groups. The foundation manages funds, promotes donations and files all appropriate tax returns.

After discussions with Calaveras County Animal Control Director Jearl Howard and members of the Calaveras Humane Society, the foundation agreed to set up a fund to collect donations for a new animal shelter.
