Planning Commission visits process to allow wedding venues on ag land
Do wedding bells and cattle moos go together?
That’s one of the questions the Plumas County Planning Commission is charged with answering by the Plumas County Board of Supervisors.
At the Thursday, Feb. 20, regular meeting of the planning commission, work on developing an ordinance permitting commercial social events, including weddings, on agriculturally zoned land took up the majority of a two-hour meeting.
With several wedding venue-interested business/rancher representatives in the audience, commissioners listened and discussed what other counties are doing on the topic.
Assistant Planning Director Becky Herrin told commissioners that it took some research to find counties with the appropriate ordinances. Among those are Tuolumne, Yolo and Mariposa counties.
Commissioners directed staff to write a draft ordinance. Herrin said that would be available to commissions before the next meeting Thursday, March 5. The venue discussion will continue on that date.
