Update on: “No Pot on Purvine” has issued their final call to action: Hearing on September 30th at 9 a.m

Update: Supervisor Rabbitt suggested to the NPOP folks that everyone send letters again and also solicit new letters in opposition. NPOP knows it doesn’t make a lot of sense because all the previous letters are in the file packet on page 68. Take a look. Nevertheless, please resubmit your letter and just change the date to reaffirm your continuing opposition.  If you haven’t written, now is the time! Be sure to send your letter to Darin.Bartow@sonoma-county.org as well as Crystal Acker. Acker may not get your letter added to the packet if not received 10 days before the hearing, but Darin will send upon receipt. It’s  important that the Supes receive your comments before the meeting and not at the meeting.

Hello friends and neighbors, 

As you probably know, in April, the County voted to allow this San Francisco based, large size, commercial marijuana operation to go in on Purvine road, in our neighborhood, right next to a fourth generation Sonoma County family home.  

We have appealed their decision and are gathering a large opposition group at the Supervisors special appeal hearing for this project.  

PLEASE pick this one time to speak up, show up, and or voice your objection.

If you have showed support in. the past, as always we thank you and urge you to show just one more attempt at stopping this operation. 

Please let us know if you will be there, wearing red in opposition to this grow.  

As the date approaches we will provide updates on the time, if it changes, but it is now scheduled:  

9AM in the Supervisors Chambers Room 102-A 

575 Administration Drive, Santa Rosa CA  

Please also forward this email to anyone of your neighbors that will show up wearing red! We are looking to pack the room with RED  

As Always, 

We thank you,  Neighbors on Purvine
