Updates On Plans For Community & Water In Redwood & Potter Valleys

May 15, 2019

May 15, 2019 — We’ll stay in the First District today, as we hear about the latest development in the Potter Valley Project and the most recent draft of the Redwood Valley community plan update, which the Redwood Valley Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) is working to incorporate into the county’s next general plan. On May 14, at the Redwood Valley Grange, over 80 members of the public attended the third of four meetings to refine their vision for how they’d like their community to develop. It’s not too late to comment on that plan, which you can do by contacting the MAC or attending one of the meetings, which take place at the Grange from 5-7 pm on the second Wednesday of the month. Cliff Paulin, who has been facilitating the process of developing the community plan, will share some details, but first, we’ll hear a brief segment about an agreement to pay for a feasibility study on applying for a license for the Potter Valley Project, now that PG&E, which owns and operates the facility, has chosen not to continue doing so.
