Sarah Glade Gurney is currently on the Sebastopol City Council
When a new business development is proposed, the state of California currently has a requirement for an Environmental Impact Report: a massive document prepared by an objective third party that outlines potential ecological threats and suggests changes to offset them.
We’re experiencing construction projects scattered throughout town, with pile-driving noise and dust blowing, not to mention the traffic congestion created by lane and sidewalk closures.
“Is it happening this summer?” folks have been asking about Jim Corbett’s summer concert series.
YES! Mr. Music has put together another great line-up, including local talent, for the free Peacetown Summer Concert Series, for the fifth year in a row.
Chimera Arts and Makerspace is a growing community of creative people in Sonoma County interested in art, making, and creative pursuits of all shapes and sizes. We meet regularly to talk about our interests, work on projects, and share knowledge.
Perhaps you remember vacations like I do.
During grade school, I saw a lot of the USA in our Chevrolet – as many states as my parents could drive through, several National Parks, and historical spots like Boston and Washington DC. Old enough to travel alone for several weeks, I spent time with my relatives in Utah, as well as with my best friend who had moved far away to Southern California. After high school, I toured Europe with a train pass. As a new homeowner and working mother, I didn’t have time or money to spend on vacations any fancier than camping. Now semi-retired, I chose activities, like hiking or bicycling trips.
Listen for Your Doorbell
Citizen volunteers continue to seek support for the renewal of Sebastopol’s Urban Growth Boundary [UGB] during the first half of May. If you’re a registered voter within Sebastopol’s city limits, they’ll be at your front door, providing information and asking for your signature to qualify this initiative.
It’s already April? What happened to January, February and March? The time went by too fast, maybe because there’s so much going on in Sebastopol!
On March 1, the Council will hear important safety issues. Please read the packet, attend, and participate. These issues involveeveryone on our sidewalks and roadways.
“OK, love your pet…”
“…just don’t use my front yard!” Seb-towners voice this concern with increasing energy. No one wants to clean up after someone else’s dog. It’s not even pleasant to pick up after your own dog while you enjoy a walk around town. But it’s the right thing to do. So be courteous and pick up after your dog.
