Public Input sought on Proposed Placer Sports and Event Center in Roseville




Scoping meeting Aug. 29  in Roseville

Roseville, CA-  Placer County is seeking public input for the proposed Placer Sports and Event Center project at the Placer County Fairgrounds in Roseville, with a public meeting on the proposal set for Aug. 29.

The proposed project is a collaboration between Placer Valley Tourism and Placer County, which consists of at least two phases. Phase one would see construction of the 130,000-square-foot, indoor sports and event center, with the potential for adding a 60,000-square-foot expansion and a 6,000-square-foot culinary building in future phases.

The county has released a notice of preparation for the project, available for public comment until Sept. 8.

The purpose of a NOP is to provide information about the proposed project and its potential environmental impacts to allow agencies and interested parties the opportunity to provide a response related to the scope and content of the project's environmental impact report, including mitigation measures that should be considered and alternatives that should be addressed.

A scoping meeting will be held Aug. 29 from 7-9 p.m., at the Martha Riley Community Library, 1501 Pleasant Grove Boulevard, in Roseville.

The facility for the meeting is accessible to people with disabilities. Those needing special assistive devices will be accommodated to the county's best ability. For more information, please contact Suzy Vose (at the contact information below) at least 48 hours before the meeting.
