Concerned Citizens For Responsible Land Use

Concerned Citizens for Responsible Land Use is an ad hoc group of private citizens opposed to the building of a major wine production facility on a site that is too small and not zoned for such use.


What Are We Opposed To?

 We are opposed to amending the General Plan and changing the zoning and land use polices for 2 parcels, which will allow the building of a winery and production facility in a rural residential area.  Learn more...

Concerned Citizens For Responsible Land Use
We the undersigned oppose the Best Family Investors Wine Production Facility with Tasting Room and Planned Events proposed for the Corner of Hwy 116 and Occidental Road, North of Sebastopol. The project requires Amendments to The General Plan, zoning changes and a Use Permit. We believe this project will cause a negative impact on the surrounding Rural Residential neighborhoods and establish an irreversible precedent for all of Sonoma County. By signing below I affirm I am a resident of Sonoma County and  18 years of age or older.

    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.
