Measure Y ballot debate for Nevada City on Thursday

I received this press release from the League of Women Voters:

This forum, to be held at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 14 at Nevada City Hall, will focus on the Measure Y ballot proposition to be decided by Nevada City residents in the June 7 election.

The purpose of holding this forum is to provide an opportunity for voters to get as much information as possible about Measure Y before deciding whether or not to support it. Measure Y is “an initiative measure to enact zoning ordinance and general plan amendments to permit and restrict home sharing short-term rentals of rooms in single family residences or guest houses by owner occupying main dwelling.” Details about about Measure Y can be found here.

Speaking in support of the proposition will be Gregg Shiffner and Karla Arends. Speaking in opposition will be Kathy Dotson and Evans Phelps. The forum will be moderated by Polly Bacich.

Audience members may submit written questions at the event. Representatives from local media will ask their own questions alternately with those from the audience. No advance questions are accepted. More information about the June election can be found here.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
