Plymouth Donates $5,000 To Help Promote The Four Fires Festival

The Plymouth City Council has voted to donate $5,000 to help promote the Four Fires Festival. Responding to a request form the Amador Vintners Association, the council voted to approve spending the money to help promote the fourth annual festival of food and wine, which will be held this year on May 5th at the Fairgrounds in Plymouth. The council also discussed options to address problem buildings in the city, especially neglected structures along Main Street. Council staff both rejected the concept of a blighted building ordinance mainly because there was no way to set objective standards. The council instead directed staff to update the city’s rules for unsafe buildings, which can identified thru criteria found in the state’s building code. Finally the council approved moving forward with a traffic study for zoning changing in the city. The study will look at traffic impacts of moving the City’s designation for high density residential zoning to a different location, and to bring back industrial zoned property to certain areas of the city.
