Calistoga Planning Commission delays decision on prohibiting new gas stations

Due to audio difficulties during the Oct. 13 meeting, Calistoga's Planning Commission will take up the issue of an ordinance prohibiting new fossil fuel gas stations anywhere within the city at its next meeting. 

The measure comes at the recommendation of Calistoga's Green Committee, citing transportation emissions as the largest cause of pollution in the area.

The cities of American Canyon and Petaluma have already passed an ordinance banning further gas stations.

In August, the city council adopted resolution declaring a climate emergency and committed the city to zero new emission by 2030. The new ordinance would further support the city in achieving that goal, the Green Committee recommends.

The ordinance would not affect the three existing gas stations but would incentivize the addition of EV charging stations. 

Calistoga's Water Conservation Technician Mitchell Egert shares valuable water- saving advice.
