Shasta County Planning Commissioners want to rezone areas of Burney, Cottonwood and Fall River Mills to create more high-density housing for very low-income families.
Residents in Fall River are up in arms over having low-income families and the perceived rise in crime. And the possibility of devaluing property values is a big concern. Residents were also concerned about little notification of the process.
There is a need for 970 low-income units to keep with updating Shasta Counties General plan. The county is about 800 units short.
Kinda sound familiar?
