Agenda and documents
7A Caldwell Winery Custom Crush Major Modification
[continued from March 7th PC meeting]
10,000 more g/y, 18600 more visitors/y, 9 more employees, 75 daily trips, catered food.
(71% increase in capacity, 660% increase in visitation)
County Caldwell page
[Revised application adds crush pad cover and permit to process grapes outside caves, and traffic calming measures on Kreutzer Ln, Visitation to go from average of 38/day to maximum of 35/day with no average - seems like a very modest change.]
7B American Canyon Solar Project
A trend-setting industrial power plant on ag land. Less than significant impacts in using up ag land for vineyard sized power generation facilities? What is PBES thinking? What will generate the most money - 18 acres of vines or solar collectors? 45,000 acres of underutilized vineyard land, already optimized for solar collection, could provide a lot of very profitable power for the Bay Area.

Proposed joint BOS-PC meeting?
3/10/15 Redux? (see here)
After 3 plus years, and an extensive APAC process nominally devoted to the issue, and 65 more wineries and winery expansions approved and almost two million more visitation slots approved, the issue of winery growth gets another hearing before a joint session of the Board and the Planning Commission. 400 residents showed up at the last meeting to voice their concerns about the encroachment of winery tourism on their quality of life, and nothing in the intervening years has slowed the process.
