As I reported here on April 6th, Idaho Maryland Mine Corporation CEO David Watkinson sent a new letter on March 31st (dated April 1st) signaling his intent to submit some preliminary documents updating their application by April 8th, the deadline set by the City of Grass Valley last fall.
According to a new press release sent today to Yubanet from the Grass Valley Community Development Department, the City has now received “updated components” of IMMC’s application, including a Draft Executive Summary and Project Description.
The central and most important document remaining for us to see is the updated Project Description itself.
Stay tuned for our analysis of that in coming days.
The most important sentence in Joe Heckel’s press release today is this:
“The April 2011 application submittal by IMMC will require the previously prepared Draft EIR to be revised, updated and re-released for a public review period.”
The best, most comprehensive background on this subject is available in the Yubanet series of articles (2005-present), “Golden Gamble in Grass Valley.”
