CHICO, Calif. -- The controversial StoneGate subdivision is moving forward to the Chico city council.

Last night, the Chico planning commission approved the project.

The StoneGate project will be a combination of residential, commercial and open space. 

The project is located next to a Meadowfoam preserve. Meadowfoam is a California endangered plant species. The impacts on this species could not be totally mitigated.

Other concerns say the EIR, or environmental impact report is inadequate.

Planning Commissioner John Howlett said he voted against the project because greenhouse gases that will be emitted from the project could not be mitigated.

"There's concerns about indirect impacts from the development being nearby to those preserve resources and what those applicants have to do to mitigate for the impacts they're going to have to the populations where the project will impact them," said Michael Sawley, Senior Planner, Community Development Department.
