Amazing how the concerns of the many wineries on the mountain faced much smaller scrutiny before the town than this episode...how about neighbors attacking the problem of spilling onto 84 at Wunderlich Park or at Alice's....now there are problems.

The neighbors, the creepy self-righteous neighbors......glad we moved....

I had not heard about this, though I have been to Stillheart Sanctuary in the past. It seems like a shameful misuse of the facility; especially the part about turning the beautiful pool into a smoking lounge (in the midst of a pristine redwood forest, no less).

If the previous comment is about the parking madness around the intersection of 84 and 35, and also the entrance to Wunderlich park, things ARE bad in those areas. Woodside and Caltrans should take note of how that growing situation impacts the neighborhood.

Does anyone know whether the Board of Supervisors denied or upheld the appeal today?
