Outdoor Event Ordinance very restrictive

The Nevada County Board of Supervisors are trying to pass items under the table. I am specifically talking about the Outdoor Event Ordinance which severely restricts our area to holding outdoor weddings. But this is only a beginning to the red tape and restrictions that will follow.

It all starts with the venue. Couples go to where the beautiful venues are. Fewer venues mean fewer weddings; and the local economy suffers. That is $60,000 per wedding spent, spread among wedding venues, vendors, hotels and restaurants etc. How do the local businesses feel about losing a significant portion of their operating revenue?

The supervisors who are in favor of this passing would prefer to live in this area by themselves … if they keep doing the underhanded paper shuffle they may well get their wish!
