Grandma’s keeps pink door

They came out in droves Monday night, braving the rain, filling the parking lot, packing the council chambers and spilling out into the entry room, umbrellas in hand.

And it was all for a pink door.

The controversy over the pink door and façade at Grandma Linda’s Ice Cream shop, located on the Plaza at 408 First St. E., has animated Sonoma to such a degree that some have asked what, exactly, all the fuss is about.

“I have lived in Sonoma since 1977 and the things folks complain about have amazed me over the years,” commented Laura Davis Szanyi on the<i> Index-Tribune’s </i>website.

Nonetheless, council members, hearing an appeal of the color at their regular meeting Monday, made it clear that they took the issue seriously and had given it much thought. And as Mayor Pro Tem David Cook put it, “This is not about the pink door.”
