Please read the revised LCP – available at local Sonoma County library branches and at some post offices, as well as on-line
and participate in the public meetings on the coast and in Santa Rosa.
Sonoma County is poised to sell out our coastline. The public must speak out en masse, now, to avert the loss of beauty and tranquility that characterize our precious land and ocean.
The Local Coastal Plan has been revised, with new cryptic language to bring water and sewage treatment to the coast, and ambiguous terms allowing for increased wine tourism, coastal vineyards and wine promotion (ie, event centers and tasting rooms), and expanded housing.
Whether you have just a few minutes or have expertise to offer, please read the attached document, do what you can, and let me know if you’d like to get more involved.
Below that, you will find my letter protesting the inadequate time allotted for public input and below that, the schedule of “workshops” the County has planned to hold along the coast over the next 6 weeks.
Please feel free to pass this message on to other friends or copy and send my letter to anyone, including back to the County and Coastal Commission.
Thank you so much for doing what you can.
