Measure D strictly prohibits landings for PRIVATE HELICOPTERS ON PRIVATE PROPERTY. Not those for PG&E, police, Cal Fire and emergency rescue operations or any others. Helicopter landings by these public service providers are not only NOT FOR PRIVATE USE. In addition, they are already protected in existing County Code. They are therefore EXEMPT.
 
Measure D also amends existing Code by restricting helicopter landings at vineyards which perform aerial operations for direct agricultural production only in emergencies. PG&E, police, Cal Fire and emergency services are NOT PERFORMING SERVICES FOR AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION. They are therefore EXEMPT.
 
Why was this part of Measure D necessary? Because existing Code has been abused by wineries by transporting executives, consultants and visitors which is already against the law.
 
THE STATEMENTS ON THE BALLOT BY SENATOR DODD THAT ANY PUBLIC SERVICES WILL BE IMPEDED BY MEASURE D ARE FALSE AND MISLEADING.

All donations are highly appreciated but they are not tax deductible.

    I went to Nextdoor Napa and posted my reasonings for supporting measure D and have gotten a lot of positive responses, only 1 negative. That reaches about 1700 homes I believe as I put it out to all neighborhoods. I also pointed out that Senator Dodd lied in the voter pamphlet. There is now an ongoing dialogue on the chat room site regarding Measure D. Next I’ll do another one on my Facebook page.
    Cheers,
