Wednesday, the Cloverdale City Council decided to delay the vote on the urban growth boundary to a special session on Monday, June 28. The reason: Council directed city staff to adjust the language to protect the agricultural use of the north and west sides of the Asti Winery.
The City Council agreed that no one wants to see wants to see a strip mall or a hotel in Asti, but Councilmembers did want to preserve the “tourist commercial” zoning in order to retain jobs and businesses. Council asked staff to adjust the language to keep expanded uses within the “historic winery/vineyard” category.

Thank you so much to those who came out on Wednesday! Council definitely listened to our requests, but we need to have a presence at Monday’s meeting. Please come to the June 28 meeting to reiterate our position to Council. The meeting starts at 6 p.m. (not 6:30!) and the urban growth boundary is the first item on the agenda [PDF].
