Tierra Robles home plan in Palo Cedro brings out neighbor opposition

Decision time has finally arrived for a controversial proposed home development that has spent more than a decade going through the planning process.

The 166-home Tierra Robles planned development east of Redding came before the Shasta County Planning Commission on Wednesday afternoon, a meeting that is expected to go into the evening.

Developer Shasta Red LLC of Beverly Hills wants to build the homes on rolling hills west of Deschutes Road, south and east of Old Alturas Road and north of Boyle Road in the Palo Cedro area.

But to do that, the company wants to change the zoning on the property to allow homes with lots ranging in size from 1.19 acres to 6.81 acres.

Robert Geringer, of Shasta Red, has owned the property since 2005 and told the commission at Wednesday’s meeting that he has built neighborhoods around the country, including the greater Nashville, Tennessee, area.
