    Supervisor Hopkins wants to hear from you-- Up Close and Personal


    This Thursday between 5-6 PM, Supervisor Hopkins is holding a meeting to hear from residents about their concerns regarding the Winery Event Ordinance. As West County sees increasingly more and more event center projects and winery development, it is critical that we show up and let her know we want guidelines and standards that create balanced growth and protect our neighborhoods, rural character and quality of life.

    We feel certain that many wine industry folks will attend this meeting so residents MUST show up in force to voice our concerns.

    Here is a list of specific priorities to share with Supervisor Hopkins in addition to your own concerns.Please feel free to use this!!!

    If any of you live next door to a tasting room or winery and are experiencing issues with noise, traffic, well water diminishment, she needs to hear about that too!

    Thank you for your continued support. We have Supervisor Hopkins' attention now -- let's show up and be heard!



    You're invited!

    Please join west county constituents and Fifth District Supervisor Lynda Hopkins for a public meeting and discussion on the county's winery event ordinance. The ordinance is still being amended by county staff. The Board of Supervisors expects to hold a public hearing on this initiative during the first quarter of 2019. In the mean time, Supervisor Hopkins would like to hear west county opinions, thoughts, concerns and more about the proposed ordinance.

    West County has been targeted by the wine industry/big wine. We don't have the water, the infrastructure to handle this onslaught. They are creeping into every part of our neighborhoods. It's "right turn only season" as it is. The chemical pollution, cancer rates for adults and children some of the highest in the state, way above national average. Leukemia also sky high and rising rapidly. Enough is enough. If they can't dry farm and stop slowly killing us all, they need to go into another business model.


    August 24th Copperfield's in Petaluma will be hosting a book signing from 2 prominent doctors who claim Sonoma County actually is number one in childhood cancer rates, "What's Making Our Kids Sick". I think it's pretty repulsive that in order for this industry to work, they have to poison us all, take all of our water. Please speak up as Lynda has voted for every single wine industry whim.

    Geologist Jane Nielson just sent out the following, which indicates that the meeting scheduled for today, as noted above was cancelled abruptly yesterday. I wonder why.

    "We should all be informed that on Monday of this week, about close of business time, PRMD belatedly released a geology report on the current Ramey winery proposal. The site is at 7097 Westside Road, right beside the Russian River (just north of the tightest switchback on any part of Westside Road) — you can look it up on Google maps.

    This previously unavailable report, released one day prior to the scheduled BZA hearing on the project (it was suddenly cancelled yesterday), explains that the proposed wine caves are to be bored into a mass of weak rocks, prominently including serpentinite—a rock made of minerals that include (and can be a major source of) asbestos.

    The late report emphasizes the weakness of the rock pile in the ridge to be excavated for construction of wine caves, and makes clear that the construction could lead to collapses, if the excavations are not properly shored up during construction. Collapse of that rock sequence would then threaten to wash asbestos-bearing materials directly into the Russian River."
