    The assessed value for my home, which I have lived in for almost 40 years, was increased by $100.000 because of the so called impact of the our newest farming activity. That is some $1,000 more in taxes this year on property that has less value to me if I am in this Federally illegal growing area of the stinky weed. Thanks a lot

      Properties in Grass Valley decreased a minimum of 10% when the community banned commercial pot growing. Given that our county has absolutely nothing on the horizon to increase revenue, we can look forward to funding cuts in all areas. Heck, we can't even keep up with road repairs now. Other communities will benefit and our SO will still be chasing around the underground bad boys.

      Prop 13, passed many years ago, only allows property tax to increase 3% maximum unless there is a change in ownership. Even if your assessed value rose $100K, your property tax could only increase 3% over the previous year.

      If it is true that yours went up more than 3% you may want to contact an attorney.

      Regulate Commercial Cannabis Growing. The taxes will benefit us ALL.
      Indoor and Outdoor by permit from our County.
      Out of Residential areas.
      We will all benefit. Our County's climate is ideally suited to grow Cannabis.
      Money for our county to improve our lives. Bike paths and side walks for kids and grandchildren to go to school safely!

      Don't blow it BOS. It is your turn now to Regulate Commercial Cannabis Cultivation so we can all benefit.

        EIR Wine Industry
        Posted on: 2017-10-08 13:36:10   By: Anonymous
         
        I'd like an EIR just as rigorous for the wine industry.
        With the use of Round-Up, and the latest information in Europe on Monsanto's refusal to show independent data on Glyphosate, with Non Hodgekins lymphoma soaring in Round-Up farming areas, and other cancers, Round-Up is not the non toxic herbicide it was touted to be by Monsanto.
        The vineyards in calaveras County are soaked with the stuff.
        All wine samples show Glyphosate residues.
        The wine growers have done grading, and used rodent control this year as the MM growers did due to the Vole population explosion.
        Grapes on steep hillsides also cause erosion and siltation of water ways.
        There are also other issues with the wine industry, they are not benign , they also impact Calaveras County.
        If the MM industry can mitigate it's EIR impacts, as the report states,the Wine industry should also , and both coexist.

          Most of what you say may very well be true. However, my bet would be there are just as many wholly organic vineyards as there are commercial grass operations. Vineyards and wineries operate under strict Federal and State Ag guidelines for a food product and play within the rules given, something which the cannabis industry lacks. You and anyone else are more than welcome to start a campaign to tighten the rules for vineyards as you see fit.
          Of course, you are being misleading and disingenuous by ignoring the elephant in the room which is marijuana is a Federally illegal substance. This brings many problems to the table for you, not the least of which is an enormous black market. In comparison to grapes and wine, the profit margin and ease of processing of marijuana makes it too tempting a product by people that are, I assume, less scrupulous than yourself. I have yet to hear the story of a midnight raid at a vineyard and people running out with an armload of grapes worth thousands of dollars. You? Did not think so. I would recommend spending your time and energy getting the Feds to fully legalize. Also, I would recommend not pushing the medicine aspect as the case for legalization, if only because you would then have to operate under the (possibly) heavy hand of Federal regulation as any other maker of medicine or drugs would have to. In other words, don't screw yourself.
          Until the time for legalization comes, you have to understand that it is not OK to have commercial grows willy-nilly around the county and neighborhoods. It is a different beast than a vineyard, I am sorry if you don't understand or chose to accept that. Comparing the two as apples to apples only undermines your stance as a person/party who can be reasoned with and in effect paints your cause as deceptive and dirty.
