The owners of Ratna Ling and Dharma Press have asked for another continuance and the hearing date with the Board of Supervisors, January 28, 2014 has been cancelled. Sonoma County Permit and Resource Management Department approved this continuance and notified us on December 24, 2013. No explanation was given.
After spending time, energy, and money advertising and preparing for the January hearing date, we must now wait for clarification and new date. Our attorney is working on our current options for action. The owners of Dharma Press first applied for expansion in 2008 and since then they have continued to operate in clear violation of their approved 2004 permit and our General Plan.
We can keep the pressure on by gaining support from allied groups in the county and continuing to contact our public officials, most importantly the Board of Supervisors. Get more information about this and updates elsewhere on this website:
