Penn Valley Area Municipal Advisory Council
On March 28, 2017, the Board of Supervisors created the Penn Valley Area Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) as a two-year pilot program. The MAC is a formal council established for the sole purpose of advising the District IV Supervisor, the Planning Department and Board of Supervisors on development and land use issues that are located within District IV boundaries that are also within either the Western Gateway Parks and Recreation District or the Penn Valley Fire District. In December 2018, the Board removed the two-year pilot program provision, making the MAC Nevada County's first permanent municipal advisory council.
