Comments: The environmental impacts are too significant for the proposal. This is a neighborhood and should not be "industrialized" bringing potential problems of well water depletion, pollution, traffic, and other impacts. The winery project as described should not be approved.

Comments: This facility feels much too large for it's intended home. I work in Calistoga.The highway between Napa and Calistoga is dotted with wineries.And the traffic is horrible.My clients are often late due to traffic even when they leave extra time.I do not want to see this county be more and more about wine. Remember we are the Redwood Empire.

Comments: Changing the General Plan usually suggests money interests are working over the best interest of the land and people living there.
