Mayor Robert Jacob
I am pleased to announce that we have reached a settlement with both CVS and Committee for Small Town Sebastopol. The City Council voted 5:0 in closed session to support the settlement, which will not be official until we have a chance to hear from community members who wish to speak on the issue at a public hearing.  The public hearing is tonight, 10/7, at the normal city council meeting beginning at 6pm at the Sebastopol Community Center Youth Annex, 425 Morris Street.

Terms of the settlement include the prohibition on left-hand turns across the highway, full solar panel coverage for the development, and CVS paying $150,000 to cover a traffic signal synchronization study, mitigation of traffic impacts, and legal fees.

Closing the battle begun prior to my tenure on the council, I am proud of the hard work of our city staff and council to find resolution. Now, I need hear from you, too!
Come out tonight to express your opinions.  Further, I am calling a special meeting for this Thursday to ensure we give everyone a chance to weigh in on this most important decision. Please join us for the special meeting on Thursday, 10/9, at 6pm at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts at 282 S. High Street.
