EIR for Grape Industry
Posted on: 2017-09-26 13:42:13   By: Anonymous
 
I would like to see the same type of EIR scrutiny for the Grape/Wine Industry.
Most grape growers are not organic. There are impacts on steep vineyards. Some have had ponds built some without a EIR.
You have to treat all Ag operations equally, or there will be lawsuits.

    Get rid of the smell and then all can be treated fairly. (oh that's right you can't mitigate that)
    Instead of going to jail for growing illegally you were given a free pass. The rule was if it is built, you can stay. If not, you are not allowed. No other industry gets this treatment. So, be careful what you say here. The only law suit that will be had if this is not properly taken care of is you being sued for being a neighborhood nuisance.

      lawsuits such as those who paid canopy taxes etc to the County vrs the illegals who paid no taxes, and abatement has been sorely inadequate?
      There are adequate grounds for law suits against the County.

            Interesting if you read the eir for Humbolt which is written by the same group hired to write the eir for Calaveras. They give two different opinions regarding a ban. Obviously, political pressure from Calaveras forced the change in outcome

        there will definitely be complaints filed by very experienced law firms against the county and others. I hope there are enough funds to fight them all. Bansters you as I am aware are the target multiple suits. Lawyer up big talkers

    Define organic. Organic means lower levels of certain products, problem with growers is they use a truck load of 'organic' and it is bad for the soil and the water. Organic is not as good as it sounds nor is it as healthy and natural as we want it to be.

      No, keyboard ranger, being organic has nothing to do with 'lower levels of certain products' but thank you for inaccurate attempt at 'splainin' something to all of us feeble-minded fools.

      Being organic means that every input is carbon based and formerly living.

      Nothing more.

      You're dismissed.

    Hmmm
    I thought a County could set up land use guidelines. If they do not want to allow a certain type of industry or business, they don't have to allow it. Our adjacent counties all have a ban in place and we aren't hearing about lawsuits by growers there? Are there any?

    I find it intriguing that growers are okay with regulation (like the UO) as long as the regulations are in their favor. When there is a potential regulation they don't like, they threaten lawsuits.

    And who knows, maybe there was an EIR done years ago when grapes started to be grown here. It does not make a difference now. Our attitude toward the earth has adjusted over time for the better. We no longer are willing to just let any industry do what it wants with no regard for animals, water, air, land, adjacent people.

    Pot growers will need to accept the fact they are under scrutiny. There are zones in which commercial farms do not belong. There are rules to which growers must adhere. There are approved growers that abuse the resources just like the unapproved growers. As a letter to the editor stated . . . growers are in it for the money; most care little about the county resources; most consider non-growing neighbors an irritant; most don't follow the rules.

    Another view on a ban.

    Cannabis Eradication. Who is responsible?
    Since the state passed this at the voter box it should also be on the state to enforce eradication by Law Enforcement for those counties wanting to ban it. If not the state then on the citizens themselves for allowing this to pass in the first place. Counties should NOT have to depend on their own funds or fees from legal growers. It is the state's responsibility in this issue to enforce eradication.
    After all if you allow it to pass you should own it too. Fair is fair.
