Re: “Protect or Preserve?

The lack of objective standards in Sonoma's General Plan leads to endless interpretation of what reinforcing "small town character" means. For Sonoma, any objective standard must include the idea of "small" and the Hotel Limitation Measure is built on that presumption. Developers today bring an army of planning experts, traffic consultants, design professionals and so forth to the approval process, effectively overwhelming any effort a single individual can offer in objection to a proposal. Thus each large hotel application commits the community to an exhausting and complicated effort to influence outcomes. Measure B simply limits the overall size of hotels until the occupancy rate justifies large hotels; the approval process remains exactly the same, but the citizens will no longer have to worry about over-sized, out-of-scale hotel projects being built as the 25-room limit insures a more predictable outcome.
