Preserving water and history will be the topics taken up by the Sonoma Planning Commission Thursday.
The commission meets at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Meeting Room at 177 First St. W., Sonoma.
Public Works Director Dan Takasugi will go over such issues as supply, challenges, the situation created by low levels of water in Lake Mendocino, and over-all strengths and weaknesses of the city’s current water system and conservation policies. A similar presentation was made in June to the City Council.
Members of the Planning Commission often question whether the water supply is adequate to meet the needs of new development as several projects move forward in the planning process.
The commission also will address proposed changes to the Sonoma Municipal Code related to strengthening rules regarding historic preservation.
