News and Notes

08/21/2012 - Ceja Project SVCAC - The SVCAC voted unanimously against recommending a General Plan Amendment to allow an applicant to rezone Rural Residental property to Diverse Agricultural to build a 20,000 SF facility for 30k wine cases, 5k barrels of beer, 5k bottles of liquor, a cheese production unit and a small bakery.

The consensus was that this is an inappropriate rezoning of property in the middle of a 47-home residential area.

There was an issue of lack of notice to the neighbors when the project application was first filed in 2011.
