Why Not Wineries?
Growing grapes seems like a typical agricultural use of land in Placer County,
however local residents are concerned about what they might bring...
What are the cumulative impacts from unlimited winery events? We believe it is mathematically impossible to calculate. Yet the prospect of Placer County approving an EIR which finds no cumulative impacts seems highly probable.
What would it be like if any parcel 4.6 acres and larger with 2 acres of plantings (grapes not specified) can be considered a winery and hold events without a MUP (multi-use permit)?
There is a proposed ordinance... have you read it?
We are not anti-development.
We support APPROPRIATE development that maintains the character and feel of our community,
and that our local services are able to support.
