The Redwood Valley MAC has an Ad Hoc Committee that meets when needed to review proposed developments in Redwood Valley. The Development Review Committee then submits information to the full RVMAC membership for consideration. The RVMAC is the conduit to the County for these projects, giving community members the opportunity to weigh in with their opinions on proposed projects. The Chair of this Standing Committee is Alex De Grassi, with members Debra Ramirez and Cassie Taaning also on the committee. Here are some current and/or recent projects that the RVMAC has reviewed:
- Flow Cannabis Institute on former Fetzer Property--See the HOME page for information on April 9 Open House hosted by Flow Cannabis Institute at the former Fetzer property. Recap: A "pre-application" meeting was held Dec. 9 at Planning and Building Services to coordinate this application for a cannabis processing, distribution, and growing center. The project is characterized as a cooperative for small farmers. A MAC-sponsored Public Workshop on the project was held on Thursday evening, February 9, 2017 at the Guild/Grange at 6:30 p.m. Over 150 local residents and interested parties learned more about the plans and brought their perspectives to the developers. Many residents, especially those living in the Bel Arbres area, asked questions and expressed concerns about the development. A summary of some of the comments is below (Q and A). As of April, 2-17, the property closed escrow and an open house has been held.
