Dear Concerned Neighbors,
I am emailing to inform you of an upcoming Protest Hearing granted to our neighbors who live down the road (on the flat part) by the California Department of Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC).
The protest is being made to oppose the issuance of an ABC license to applicants located at 2275 Soda Canyon (the location of The Caves at Soda Canyon).
The applicants seek to obtain a winegrowers license, while our neighbors seek to prevent the issuance of the license on the grounds that granting the license will result in a significant increase in the traffic volume on Soda Canyon Road, an increase in the threat of fire, and a meaningful decrease in the quality of life not only for our neighbors who live nearby The Caves, and all neighbors that use the roadway, but also our neighbors down the road who have to deal with the noise and safety issues of a busy road way on a daily basis.
The Notice of this Hearing is attached for your review.
It is my understanding that some of you are already aware of the hearing and are planning to attend. Thank you for supporting this important cause.
For those of you who may just be learning of these hearings, our neighbors in opposition to the permit would greatly appreciate it if you would consider attending the hearings this Thursday morning to show your support for our neighbors and their efforts to try to improve what has already become a dangerous traffic situation and their efforts to try to help mitigate the potential for fires.
If you are not sure whether you support or oppose this license, please consider attending this hearing as it represents a unique opportunity to learn more about some of the key issues that we face as local residents of Soda Canyon Road/Loma Vista who are concerned about preserving this naturally majestic setting that we have come to love as well as our peaceful, private way of life.
Hearing Date and Times: Thursday March 27th, 2014 at 9:30am and also 11:00am
Hearing location: Napa County Administration Building, 1195 Third Street, Basement Level, Auditorís Conference Room, Napa CA 94559.
Please feel free to forward this email to your neighbors as you deem appropriate. Kindly forward me their email address if they would like to be added to our rapidly growing email contact list.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this email and thank you for considering this opportunity to oppose the issuance of the proposed permit.
