Sonoma County Supervisors: Where’s that study you promised 3 years ago?

It’s been almost 3 years ago that the Supervisors promised a study on the impacts of events in this county.




WHO: Dominic Foppoli/Foppoli Family Vineyards has applied for a Use Permit for a new Wine Tasting Room with events. PRMD File No. UPE15-0060.

WHAT: Request for a Use Permit to convert an existing 1,800 square foot garage to a tasting room, with limited barrel storage, a waiver to covered parking and to include two (2) wine club events, up to 30 people to take place during tasting room hours. The site location for the tasting room is 5107 Slusser Road, Windsor. APN: 066-280-036. Supervisorial District 4.

Zoning on the parcel is: DA B6-60, Z, F-2, RC50/50 VOH (Diverse Agriculture; Riparian Corridor 50/50; Flood Plain; Valley Oak Habitat Combing Districts).

The Sonoma County Board of Zoning Adjustments will hold a public hearing to consider adopting a Mitigated Negative Declaration and an action approving the Use Permit in which all interested persons are invited to attend and provide comments.
