There are many inexpensive treasures hidden in plain sight in our wonderful Sonoma County. The Healdsburg Museum and Historical Society is one local gem that offers free time travel to visitors and locals alike.The Museum is located in Healdsburg’s former Carnegie Library, a National Register Historic Landmark, which was designed by noted Bay Area architect Brainerd Jones and built in 1911. “Roots of Healdsburg Wine Agriculture” opened May 23 and will be on display through November 10. This exhibition focuses on what makes this place special as a wine growing region and the forces that shaped the early wine industry from the rancho era to the first winery in Healdsburg and the growth of an industry up to Prohibition.

On Monday night, March 18th, an Appeal was heard by the Healdsburg City Council. Filed by a dozen concerned citizens, this appeal was asking our locally elected officials who have broad, comprehensive powers regarding Land Use matters, to review an approval made by their appointed Planning Commission in a 4:2 vote with one abstention, the Planning Commissioner who is the builder/contractor of the project. The appeal was denied by the City Council:  5:0. The Citizen’s Appeal was an effort to “Save Our Plaza” from an intense use project. How would this building, created for a 318 seat, three- story restaurant with a rooftop bar, a 100 wine wall, and two luxury penthouse condos impact our already problematic downtown parking, the traffic congestion, our small retail businesses on the Plaza, an already-crisis-level shortage of restaurant workers and affordable worker housing, and, even more unmeasurable, our historic Plaza Park area?  To be clear, the City Council “may affirm, reverse or modify, in whole or part, the project approval. The Council may also make or substitute additional decisions or determinations as it finds warranted.” (Land Use Code, 20.28.085 E.2)

Tensions in the Burg over small town balance become especially acute when our Plaza feels threatened. This month we shine light on “small scale” in our land use code. On February 12, the Planning Commission heard (and approved 4-1-1) the Ramsey/Valette 106 Matheson, mixed-use proposal, on the Plaza. Community members packed City Hall. Many expressed enthusiastic support for a vibrant new venue with chef Valette; others, however, requested a seat reduction of the proposed 231-seat “too-big-on-the-Plaza” restaurant.
