Tonight: Woodside meets on farmers' market

The Woodside Planning Commission will hold a special meeting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, to consider an action that could open the door for a weekly farmers' market near the corner of Highway 84 and Skyline Boulevard in Skylonda.

A market was held in a parking lot there on Aug. 1 and neighbors spoke up for a weekly repeat, but the town shut it down in keeping with the municipal code and, more important, a stipulation on the use of the property. The Skylonda community has the backing of the Town Council.

The conditional use permit for the properties at 17265 and 17285 Skyline Blvd. does not allow outdoors sales, town staff have said. The property owners have asked the Planning Commission to amend the permit and have designated as their agent Maggie Foard, who manages the Mountain Goat Farmers' Market.

The amended permit would allow a market between 3 and 7 p.m., with seasonal adjustments, on Wednesdays, according to a staff report.

The commission meets in Independence Hall, at the corner of Woodside and Whiskey Hill roads.
