The unanimous 4 – 0 vote against luxury resort in community remains in limbo due to county staff failures so it will come back and things could change.
We had super strong testimony from about 25 community leaders, voters and experts along with 300 comments sent in opposing so the BZA agreed 100 percent that the project needs to be denied.
But now it is unclear as it was only a straw vote because Permit Sonoma and County Counsel didn’t even bother to draft a denial resolution. Unbelievable disrespect for the Commissioners and the public. We can only hope the straw man vote holds now.
The decision was delayed because Permit Sonoma did not have a Denial Resolution available. It will go back to the BZA and so they could change their votes or otherwise mess with the vote. This is far from over.
