Whats going on

May 19th - ORD16-0001; Continued hearing for Winery Events Ordinance
1:05pm - virtual
On June 3, 2021 and February 17, 2022, Permit Sonoma staff presented a draft Winery Events Ordinance to the Planning Commission. On June 3, 2021, Commissioners continued the item and directed staff to return to the Commission with a table comparing the definitions of local guidelines prepared by two advisory groups - Dry Creek Valley Citizens Advisory Council (DCVCAC) and Sonoma Valley Citizens Advisory Commission (SVCAC). During the February 17, 2022 meeting, the Planning Commission took straw votes on revised county definitions and directed staff to return to the Commission with a revised definition and criteria for “Agricultural Promotional Events”; and to review the changes made to definitions and any effects on the draft county standards. The item was continued to a date uncertain.
