SVCAC to review GE home; Kenwood cell tower

At its May 22 meeting, the Sonoma Valley Citizens Advisory Commission (SVCAC) will review a proposal to build a single family residence along Sonoma Creek in Glen Ellen, a project that is asking the county for an exception to creek setback requirements.

The area on O’Donnell Lane has been the subject of flooding before, raising concerns among some neighbors about the impact of the home construction on the rest of the residences.

Also on the SVCAC agenda is a review of a proposal to build a 61-foot-tall wireless communication facility in a vineyard off of 8350 Sonoma Hwy. in Kenwood. The 12 eight-foot-tall antennas would be positioned 51 feet above the ground and be hidden by a faux water tower. There would be five outdoor equipment cabinets enclosed by a chain link fence within the foot print of the faux water tower.

The facility is proposed by AT&T Mobility, and would be located on vineyard property owned by St. Francis Vineyards.

The SVCAC reviews development proposals in Sonoma Valley and makes recommendations to the appropriate decision-making bodies at the county level as well as at the City of Sonoma.

The May 22 SVCAC meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. and take place at the Sonoma Police Department’s Community room, 177 First Street West, Sonoma.
