Bishop City Council

Agenda includes a public hearing for a Proposed Development on Home Street

Monday’s Bishop City County meeting will include a public hearing for the environmental review of the Kingston Subdivision. The proposed project is located on a 2.75 acre parcel that is currently home to the Bishop Nursery. As proposed the parcel at 785 Home Street would be subdivided into 15 residential parcels ranging in size between 5,104 and 8,232 square feet. Each parcels individual building pad would cover roughly sixty to sixty-five percent of the parcel area. The project would include the removal of the existing Bishop Nursery. Project proponent Bob Kingston stresses that the Bishop Nursery will stay open as the proposed development moves forward.

The Environmental Initial Study may be reviewed at the City of Bishop’s web site, www.ca-bishop.us. Comments made at Mondays meeting will be reviewed by staff and incorporated into the Initial Study. Final determination of the draft Mitigated Negative Declaration is tentatively scheduled for the July 27th city council meeting.
