As the past year of 2020 was like no other, we could not meet in person. The Friends of Alexander Valley and the Alexander Valley Association had the first ever – virtual Annual Meeting. The video below is a recording.
Thank You for your continued support of the Alexander Valley Association. 2019 was a difficult year for the Alexander Valley community. So many of our friends & neighbors lost homes in the Kinkade Fire, and the burnt hills of Alexander Valley are a constant reminder of what occurred. The AVA will work to provide information and support the valley through the recovery efforts. We also ask that our fire survivors provide us with updated mailing addresses so we can stay in touch.
In 2019, the AVA participated in the county process to amended the Accessory Dwelling Unit regulations, and the changed to zoning regulations for overnight accommodations. We also continue to monitor the activities around the proposed replacement of the Chalk Hill road bridge. We also continue to receive notifications from PRMD of proposed building permits in Alexander Valley.
The Annual Meeting was held on February 9, 2020 in the Alexander Valley Community Hall.
We gathered as a community of friends and neighbors on November 15th, 2019. We shared many tears and hugs alongside the bounty of our valley with beautiful wine. A private event of Alexander Valley Association members only.
Alexander Valley Association Annual Meeting was held on Saturday, February 10, 2018.
The Alexander Valley Association holds an annual general meeting every February. The meeting brings together AVA members to hear from key area leaders on issues of interest to the valley. Speakers will include county and state elected representatives, Alexander Valley School principal, Geyserville Fire Chief, and a representative from the county Sheriff’s office.
November 2017 River Rock Casino Alcohol License Update
The AVA through its Pro Bono lawyer and in collaboration with the County has been negotiating the details of the River Rock Casino’s ABC license for two years since Nov 2015. The Casino wanted all restrictions lifted and the AVA wanted all restrictions kept in place. In October 2017 the ABC issued a new license to the Casino and an amendment to the county MOU was put in place to describe in detail how events & noise would be handled. Both documents are available on the website Document page.
The Alexander Valley Association annual picnic will be Sunday, August 6th, 2017 at Hoot Owl Picnic Grounds. Photos from past annual picnics are posted on the Alexander Valley Association Facebook Page.
