Yountville Hill Appeal Update

Mary Ann Moffitt | Aug 4, 2014 on: Yountville Hill

Hello everyone,

As you have probably heard by now, last week a group of appellants (Ren Harris, Christian Moueix, Mary Ann Moffitt) representing Save Yountville Hill filed an appeal of the Planning Commissionís approval of the Yountville Hill Winery project with the Board of Supervisors. The document is attached. We will learn shorty if the Board accepts the appeal and schedules a hearing date. We anticipate that the hearing wouldnít be held until October.

We are using Shute, Mihaly, Weinberger, a San Francisco law firm with a great deal of experience in Napa County:

Shute, Mihaly & Weinberger LLP is a law firm specializing in government, land use, natural resource and environmental law. Since 1980, the firm has provided public agencies and community groups throughout California with the highest quality legal representation, offering an array of litigation, counseling and planning services. Known for its commitment to promoting environmental and community values, SMW is at the forefront of the major land use and development issues facing California today.

The core group of appellants will meet in a few days to discuss our next steps and the most effective way to move forward with the board of supervisors. Once we formalize a strategy and our message, weíll be asking everyone to meet with them on a one-on-one basis.

Thank you so much for your support. Iíll be in touch soon to let you what comes next. In the meantime, please donít hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
