Since 1972, when he missed a Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors meeting and got assigned an unwanted task, Phil Buchanan, 79, has worked on putting up Gilroy’s downtown Christmas Tree and banners. But what started as an unexpected chore, has become a real labor of love for the retired dentist and his wife, Joan, who was the city’s woman of the year in 2015 for her community service. They were out there again Monday night, helping a professional crew install the artificial tree that’s been part of the celebration for the past 17 years.

What could be more representative of Gilroy than a play in the two languages of most of its residents? Community Solutions presents Historias de Mi Madre XI: Un Mundo Raro (A Strange World) on Saturday, December 2, 2017 at 6:30pm at Gavilan College Theatre, 5055 Santa Teresa Boulevard. This bilingual play focuses on how topics of domestic violence, sexual assault, gender roles, and LGBTQ were addressed from the 1950s to present day. “We are very excited to present Un Mundo Raro (a Strange World) to the South County community,” said Perla Flores, author and director of the Historias de Mi Madre series. “Through this play, we want to begin a multi-generational dialogue on healthy relationships, gender equality, and respect,” she concluded. The play follows the lives of Jorge, Lucha, and Manuel, three elderly individuals living in a nursing home and reflecting on how issues of domestic violence, sexual assault, gender roles, and LGBTQ were addressed during their youth. Several members of the elderly community residing throughout Santa Clara County were interviewed to ensure an adequate portrayal of their experiences as Latino men and women growing up during a time of deeply entrenched social norms and gender stereotypes. This play is intended for a mature audience. There is a suggested $10 donation, but no one will be turned away. Proceeds from the evening will support Community Solutions' programs for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. For information regarding Historias de Mi Madre Un Mundo Raro, call (408) 776-6294.

In an effort to take local control before new state laws go into effect in January, the Gilroy City Council passed two “emergency” ordinances last week, one to stop commercial cannabis sales and the other to limit the size of “grandmother” units to 600 square feet. When recreational cannabis is legalized statewide in January, Gilroy will not be profiting from it. It joins most of its neighbors in Santa Clara, including Morgan Hill, in banning dispensaries and commercial growing of marijuana. The council voted unanimously to keep the ban on medical marijuana dispensaries it had passed earlier in the year and strengthen it to include recreational dispensaries. “I think it’s pretty clear, at least from the people I’ve spoken with, that people don’t want these in their neighborhoods and I don’t think the city is in a position to enforce the laws around dispensaries,” said councilmember Dan Harney. “I think in a year we should revisit it, once the law goes through.” Other councilmembers said they were concerned by the fact that marijuana is still federally illegal and the dispensaries are forced to operate as cash businesses because banks are fearful of taking illegal funds. The city’s planning commission recommended that the council consider and not close the door on the possible tax revenues from having dispensaries, however, the final vote ignored that. In Colorado, where recreational marijuana has been legal since 2012, sales of cannabis were at more than $1.1 billion in 2016 and the state has collected more than $150 million in taxes, $50 million of

SIENA ARIOTO, WHO LIKES ART, THEATER, SCOUTING, IS 8 By Brad Kava Editor

Siena Arioto, 8, had just written a letter to Santa when she got the big news– she was selected to be the Grand Marshal at the Gilroy Holiday Parade Saturday. 0

Now, she will hand deliver the letter when she rides in his sleigh, surrounded by friends from the third grade at Gilroy Prep School. “I think it’s pretty amazing,” said her mother, Laura Arioto, a lifelong Gilroy resident whose grandparents, Kelvin and Peggy Ashford used to own Western Auto downtown. Her aunt and uncle own

Ashford’s Heirlooms in the same location. “It was so surprising. We found out about it at a school assembly. Melanie Corona (of the Downtown Business Association) presented Siena with a letter from Santa. All my friends knew and kept it a secret from me.” Laura said she hopes having Siena at the center of the parade will help bring awareness to the

rare disease her daughter suffers from, Friedreich’s Ataxia, a genetic disorder that saps her energy and makes it hard to keep her balance. It also causes heart disease and scoliosis. Some 6,000 people suffer from it. The family found out she had it last year. “We hope a cure is around the corner,” said Arioto. “They are working on it.”

Meanwhile, the family, which includes children 24 and 5, try to stay upbeat. Siena makes it easier. “She’s a very positive, happy little girl that can make anybody laugh,” said Arioto. “She’s handling it gracefully.” Siena will not only ride with Santa, but she’ll be on stage helping to light ➝ Grand Marshal, 12

more than $1.1 billion in 2016 and the state has collected more than $150 million in taxes, $50 million of which went to build new schools, according to the Denver Post. The city of Aurora, Colorado, three times bigger than Gilroy, raised its tax on cannabis sales from 5.75 percent to 7.75 percent and has raised more than $1.5 million for homeless services and $2 million for a recreation center. Most cities in the county, including Morgan Hill, have banned commercial marijuana sales. Gilroy neighbors Hollister and Santa Cruz are hoping to jump on a different band wagon, allowing and taxing recreational sales. Prices of large industrial buildings in Hollister have skyrocketed as speculators hope to grow crops indoors, according to business people there.

Gilroy’s ordinance allows private cultivation of marijuana, with each home allowed to grow six plants indoors or in adjacent buildings such as greenhouses. The city can also not ban delivery of marijuana to private homes from legal dispensaries, according to city attorney Andy Faber. The council voted 4-3 to restrict accessory homes, so called “granny units,” to one bedroom and 600 square feet. State law would allow accessory homes of up to half the size of the main unit on the property, or 1,200 square feet. Councilmembers Cat Tucker, Peter LeroeMuñoz and Fred Tovar voted against the ordinance saying that 600 square feet was too small. The other four members, Daniel Harney, Mayor Roland Velasco, Dion Bracco and Paul Kloecker, supported the small units, saying they

wouldn’t have much impact on housing limits in the city. Tovar said he thought such small units wouldn’t help people who need affordable housing. “I don’t want people to view accessory dwelling units as a way to house four or six people,” said Harney, who added they should be for more vulnerable single people and in-laws. Dwellings of 800 square feet trigger use charges of $34,000 to $48,000, making them unaffordable. Those impact fees are assessed because larger units are thought to bring in problems such as parking, overcrowding and environmental impacts. In the city’s ordinance, one of the units on the property must be occupied by the owner. The council will look at the ordinance again later in the year as it studies zoning and impact fees.

I think it’s pretty clear, at least from the people I’ve spoken with, that people don’t want these in their neighborhoods and I don’t think the city is in a position to enforce the laws around dispensaries —COUNCILMEMBER DAN HARNEY

Those who love collectible classic sneakers have a new place to try and win rare Michael Jordans and other brands. It’s in a kind of gambling machine at the Outlets. You pay $5 for a chance to put a key into a arcade game device that holds the pair you want, like those claw machines kids get stuffed animals in. You get one shoe and then send the Portland, Oregon-based company, Sneaker Chest, the number with it and they send you the other. The company has put Air Jordan 10 “OVOs,” Supreme x Jordan 5s, Don C x Air Jordan 2s and the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 in machines, some of which sell for as much as $1,000. The machine is in the southeast quadrant of the Outlets (the first right off Arroyo Circle heading south), by the restrooms and near Zumiez. Be warned, however. The company’s website was down Wednesday and the machines had a number of complaints from frustrated gamers on the web.

New shop brings the ocean to Gilroy PADDLEBOARDS AND KAYAKS WILL BE ADDED TO PACIFIC OCEAN WATER SPORTS By Brad Kava Editor

Brad Kava

The 30 miles between Gilroy and Monterey Bay didn’t seem like a great distance for diver Mauricio Muñoz–it seemed perfect. After years in the Silicon Valley corporate world, the lifetime scuba diver decided to open a business that reflected his passion and took a risk on the Garlic Capital of the World, starting the city’s first dive shop, Pacific Ocean Water Sports at 431 First St. in November. It sells scuba gear, gives lessons and will soon add kayaks and stand-up paddleboards. “When I found out there was no dive center in Gilroy, I conducted a marketing study,” said Muñoz, 48, a Southern California native who was raised in Costa Rica. “The numbers indicated it would be a great idea. My goal was to find a place a mile from the 101 corridor because I know there will be a tremendous influx of Bay Area scuba divers who go to the ocean on weekends.” The fact that Gilroy has a college and three high schools also helped. “It’s a young and vibrant community that has never been serviced for scuba diving,” he said. “It has tremendous potential. A lot of people here don’t get certified because it’s too expensive and too far away.” Muñoz, who started diving when he was 8, said being underwater is a lifestyle. He started teaching diving at Gavilan

NOT LANDLOCKED Diver Mauricio Muñoz hopes his new shop is the key to get Gilroyans into the water in Monterey Bay, Lake Tahoe and around the world. College in 2015 to start to spark more local interest. He’s banked his future on bringing the love for the ocean inland. He had a great chance to learn diving in Costa Rica, where it was only a two-hour drive between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. “I have played many sports in my life, basketball, soccer, football. But I think scuba diving is the best. It’s a lifestyle.” After 18 years in Costa Rica, he enrolled at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota where he got his masters degree in business. “People said, ‘How on earth could you pick the frozen tundra?’ I was there to do my

graduate education. I needed a place with no distractions. I couldn’t have done it with the distractions of Costa Rica.” That led him to a corporate job in Boston, working in finance, which led to financial positions with IBM, Levi’s and the Gap. After 20 years, during which he and his wife dived and taught diving, a friend offered him a chance to buy a dive shop. He turned it down, but it got him thinking about being an entrepreneur. He started a business in 2012 called Cocos Island, which offered investment consulting for businesses in Asia that wanted to sell in the U.S. and Latin America

and this year, decided to make his hobby his profession. He will lead diving trips around the world. His second favorite dive spot is Cocos Island, 33 hours by boat of the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, the spot that inspired Michael Crichton to write Jurassic Park. His favorite place? He won’t exactly say because he doesn’t want to see it ruined, but he says it may have to do with the lifting of the Cuban embargo in 2016, where there’s a reef that is unspoiled by tourism and mostly pristine. Not so for many reefs around the world, which are rapidly degrading. Muñoz teaches

environmentally friendly diving techniques to help preserve the reefs around the world. “My wife and I have gone to Hawaii for over a decade and I can witness to the fact that the reefs have been deteriorating as a result of multiple forces–irresponsible tourism, overfishing and the warming of the water.” Plastics, pollution and even the use of sunscreen has also badly damaged the ocean. Locally, he said, everyone thinks of Monterey as the main dive spot, but he likes to take people to Lake Tahoe in the summer, one of the most underrated sites.

OPINION LETTERS Time to ban smoking at outdoor restaurants I vividly remember celebrating my fourteenth birthday with my family. We sat on the patio of my favorite restaurant, enjoying the perfect weather. I could see the waiter coming with my meal and as I was expecting to smell my bacon cheeseburger, instead, I was shocked by a whiff of cigarette smoke. According to the Surgeon General, there is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke. Knowing this, why should non-smokers be subject to deleterious health risks while trying to enjoy a meal on the patio of a restaurant? Is it necessary to expose restaurant staff to concerning risks when they are just trying to do their job? It is vital to protect our communities from harm. Children are more susceptible to facing significant health detriments, including more frequent and severe asthma attacks, respiratory and ear infections, and sudden infant death syndrome. Youth can also be influenced to accept tobacco use as normal, acceptable behavior. Having a smoke-free outdoor dining policy would also support individuals who are attempting to quit. These paramount reasons are why we, Youth for Lungs, want to urge the city to make outdoor dining areas smoke-free to protect the public’s health. Melissa Renteria

An American hero from Gilroy received a hero’s welcome

A

n American hero came home Friday, Nov. 17, 2017. Frank Louis Masoni returned home from the war. Not the Middle East, not the Vietnam War, but World War II. Frank was 20 years old when he volunteered for the Marine Corps. He had been a farm boy. He worked in the fields with his father and younger brothers. He had had been trained to use different tools–guns, rifles, grandees, and even pots and pans, so he was made an assistant cook. Frank was mortally wounded on Nov. 21, 1943 as American troops, for the second day, attempted to storm the island of Betio in the Tarawa Atoll located in the South Pacific. His remains were eventually interred in an unknown soldier grave in Hawaii Five years ago, Frank’s family in Gilroy was notified of an attempt to return fallen service men to their families. DNA samples were requested. This past August, the family was informed that Frank had been identified. Frank was coming home. His plane landed at the San Jose Airport and was greeted by family and a military Honor Guard. The passengers remained seated on the plane as Frank’s coffin was slowly removed. His American flag draped coffin was placed in a hearse for the last leg of long overdue journey. Frank’s motorcade processed down Highway 101 with motorcycles and police vehicles flashing their blue lights. Family followed as did a military Honor Guard and a civilian group of Veterans Motorcycle Association. On every highway overpass were police and fire vehicles. Standing atop a fire truck were firefighters standing at attention and saluting. This continued at every overpass all the way to Gilroy. On Saturday, he was buried in the hometown of his birth, Gilroy. Frank came home 74 years after his death on that South

Pacific island. Family, friends of the family and even strangers gathered to see that Frank received the hero’s burial he so deserved after all this time away from home. They gathered at Habing Family Funeral home hear how the Masoni family waited all these years, for Frank to come home. Frank’s mother, Clorinda, wrote many letters to the War Department in Washington asking for her son’s remains. Her letters and prayers have finally been answered, but she is no longer here to welcome her son home. In her stead were

On every highway overpass were police and fire vehicles. Standing atop a fire truck were firefighters standing at attention and saluting. This continued at every overpass all the way to Gilroy many wonderful people of Gilroy. They came out of their homes to stand at the curbs as Frank passed. They lined First Street. The veterans saluted, the women and children held flags over their hearts. There were “Welcome Home” signs. At the intersection of Wren Avenue, the procession was met by two Gilroy Police Department horses and riders. They escorted Frank down the street to his final resting place. No traffic moved. It was eerily silent. All you could hear were the horses hooves on the pavement, in step and so solemn. They knew what all of Gilroy knew, an American hero came home on Friday.

Will retail survive? As far as shopping, the handwriting is on the wall. Even if you see a lot of shoppers, many are only looking and the search for the best price online. Stores to survive in Gilroy need to be service or restaurant oriented and I don't mean a chain restaurant or another Taqueria. Niche stores are another option but usually don't do well as a rule. Gilroy needs to rethink what kind of retail growth they want and grant permits accordingly. The Outlets were very busy yesterday but I predict many closed stores by end of March 2018.

The view from a city council member’s desk By Daniel Harney Guest Column

contributed

Streets are used to keep our city moving, they drive our economy by getting kids to school, parents to work and local business supplied with goods and the ability to provide services. Maintaining safe streets, upgrading streets and ensuring our city traffic can flow efficiently from point A to point B is an essential part of city services to maintain a quality of life for all of Gilroy. But what should our priorities be given the limited resources available to fund the ongoing expenses of maintaining our streets? Local residents have been very clear with the City Council. In the last election, voters demanded that our roads be better maintained and repaired by approving an increase in sales and gas taxes. Recent conflicts in Gilroy neighborhoods over speed and traffic volumes have been brought to the Council’s attention with residents demanding action to alleviate pain points. Traffic studies were conducted, workshops were hosted and policies, including a new traffic-calming program, were developed. Government, as the old saying goes, “…is a process” and sometimes it

feels laborious and needlessly slow. Residents and City Council must expect more from our City Staff especially when it comes to traffic and road improvements. We need to ensure that we prioritize our projects and maintain accountability by setting clear timelines and deliverables to ensure that improvements our residents demand occur. We need to deliver on our promises. True, we do have limited financial resources (and until Measure B and SB1 funding is released, major road improvements will be delayed). However, there should be no excuses for not maintaining existing traffic systems, particularly those that have been designed to slow traffic, build awareness and protect pedestrians and cyclists. Recently, during a Council discussion regarding a $250,000 contract renewal for traffic and lighting system maintenance, City Staff stated that solar powered speed signs and crosswalks, designed to build awareness reduce speed and protect pedestrians, were not being maintained and have not been for an unknown period of time! When it comes to streets, our city priority

He’d like to see them used full time, but they need new batteries. should be safety first! Since pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists all share the roads, we need to ensure that our road traffic systems are being maintained and fixed immediately when they fail. Pedestrian crosswalks, speed control signs, line stripping, and pothole repairs need to be the foundation of

our road program. Traffic enforcement around schools, parks and at the most dangerous intersections need to be enforced with zero tolerance for violations. Citizens should demand this from elected officials and hold city staff accountable. Residents needs to engage and make use of the traffic calming

program and policies, report problems and insist that the city investigate and correct safety problems in a timely fashion. If systems and policies fail we should not turn a blind eye or accept excuses. If you see a disrepair that is causing an unsafe condition or behaviors, report to our public works

department and demand a timeline for correction. To contact Public Works call 408 8460451. Daniel Harney is currently serving a twoyear appointment on City Council which expires November 2018. He can be reached Daniel.Harney@ cityofgilroy.org

OBITUARIES BIRDIE STEVENS July 25, 1941 - October 27, 2017

B

irdie Dean Stevens passed away peacefully in her sleep on October 27, 2017. Her parents chose the perfect name for her because she was beautiful, happy and tiny. However, her small size belied her inner strength. She always told her children nobody could hurt them because “you can’t hurt steel”. She was most proud of her large family and will be greatly missed. She was raised in Seaside, California and loved walking to Lover’s Point as a child with her younger sisters. She was extremely intelligent and could have chosen a college degree, but decided to become a mother instead and never looked back. She was the most fun mother ever and never knew an empty house. Not only did she raise her five children, she also raised her two grandsons, Zack and Cody. She was the first woman to run for Board of Supervisors in San Benito County back when women weren’t into politics. It was a close race and although she didn’t win, it taught her daughter’s how strong women could be. She was the president of the PTA and Boosters club and a Girl Scout Leader and was involved in all her children’s and grandchildren’s activities. She rode a motorcycle for many years and loved going to Yosemite and Big Sur to camp. She loved sports, especially the SF Giants, 49ers and Warriors. She was employed by the Hollister Freelance and Western Farms. She is survived by her wonderful husband of 53 years, Ken Stevens and her five children, Teri (Steve), Cindi (Jon), Guy, Keith (Laura) and Phil (Cindy). She is also survived by her two sisters Diane Robinson and Maxeen Reynolds as well as seventeen grandchildren, six great grandchildren and several cousins and nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Dean and Phyllis Gruenwald. She knew how much her family loved her and we had a family reunion in her honor that was filmed by her grandson Conner. There was a celebration of her life on November 11, 2017 that was attended by many family and friends and we danced and sang as was her wish. She will be be forever cherished, loved and missed.

Volunteers keep tree trimmed and ready ➝ Tree, 1

Francisco, after having a Gilroy practice for years. They switched to an artificial tree a decade ago because it was easier than getting a fresh one in a truck and delivered. The current 22-foot tree is stored by Sierra Display and has its decorations on the pieces that fit together on a steel frame. Phil had put up banners in the years the city used a real tree, but he stepped up in 2000 when they started using the artificial one. Volunteers and the city put up decorations for years but now it’s done by Sierra Display, which is paid $5,000 a year by the Chamber of Commerce, which is funded by the city, according to Phil. Banners have replaced a lot of

the garlands and decorations the city used to use. Before Sierra Display took over, the Buchanans would store all of the decorations and ask Eagle Scouts to help maintain them and bring them out for the holidays. Now, Joan and Downtown Business Association President Gary Walton add fresh decorations every year. “We’re really proud of it,” said Phil. “Other cities don’t decorate the way we do.” Walton paid tribute to the couple as they stood out in the cold Monday night and returned Tuesday to do more. “They’ve been involved trying to make it a better community for a long time,” said Gary Walton, president of the Downtown Business Association, who also helped.

a great little community.” Siena is a Girl Scout who loves to draw, act and play Pokemon and Minecraft. She takes art classes at Dabble Art Studio and appeared in the Lion King and Alice in Wonderland over the summer.

“We took a small step this year. We fundraised for muscular dystrophy. She goes to their summer camp. I think gradually we’ll go out there and do a big fundraiser. I think creating more awareness at this time is good.”

SUMMARY On November 17, 2017, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) filed its Gas Transmission and Storage (GT&S) application with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) requesting to increase rates for the following: •

Comply with new regulatory requirements for the safety of gas transmission and storage facilities

Infrastructure investments to ensure gas transmission pipelines and storage facilities continue to operate safely and reliably

Retirement of two gas storage fields in order to reduce costs to customers in the long term, reduce risk and streamline operations

Related to the programs above, PG&E is requesting a total increase of $1.317 billion to be collected in rates from customers during the period 2019-2021. BACKGROUND The GT&S Application is submitted approximately every three years by PG&E. The scope of the Application includes gas transmission and gas storage facilities. In this Application, PG&E forecasts the costs necessary to operate gas transmission and storage facilities in a safe and reliable manner. This Application also proposes how the costs to operate PG&E’s transmission and storage business will be assigned to each customer class. The Application covers the years 2019-2021, although PG&E has also forecast the costs necessary for 2022 should the CPUC or stakeholders wish to consider extending the case into a fourth year. HOW WILL PG&E’S APPLICATION AFFECT ME? A summary of the rate impact for PG&E’s gas customers was provided in a bill insert sent directly to customers in December. For each year covered in this Application, PG&E is requesting increases of $289 million in 2019, $135 million in 2020 and $180 million in 2021. If approved, this application would increase rates effective beginning January 1, 2019. Based on rates currently in effect, the bill for a typical residential non CARE customer averaging 34 therms per month of gas usage would increase from $54.85 to $55.96, or 2.0 percent. Actual impacts will vary depending on energy usage across the months. HOW WILL PG&E’S APPLICATION AFFECT CUSTOMERS WHO BUY GAS FROM A THIRD PARTY? Certain residential customers only receive gas distribution services from PG&E and purchase their gas from a third party. PG&E does not purchase gas for these customers. The impact of PG&E’s Application on the transportation component of the bill is an average increase of $0.65, or 1.6 percent. Transportation components of the customer bill are the same regardless of whether the customer obtains gas service from PG&E or from a third party. HOW DO I FIND OUT MORE ABOUT PG&E’S PROPOSALS? If you have questions about PG&E’s filing, please contact PG&E at 1-800-743-5000. For TTY, call 1-800-652-4712. If you would like a copy of PG&E’s filing and exhibits, please write to PG&E at the address below: Pacific Gas and Electric Company 2019 GT&S Application (A.17-11-009) P.O. Box 7442 San Francisco, CA 94120 A copy of PG&E’s filing and exhibits is also available for review at the CPUC’s Central Files Office by appointment only. For more information, contact aljcentralfilesid@cpuc.ca.gov or 1-415-703-2045. PG&E’s Application (without exhibits) is available on the CPUC’s website at www.cpuc.ca.gov. CPUC PROCESS This Application will be assigned to an Administrative Law Judge (Judge) who will determine how to receive evidence and other related documents necessary for the CPUC to establish a record upon which to base its decision. Evidentiary hearings may be held where parties will present their testimony and may be subject to cross-examination by other parties. These evidentiary hearings are open to the public, but only those who are formal parties in the case can participate. After considering all proposals and evidence presented during the hearings, the assigned Judge will issue a proposed decision which may adopt PG&E’s proposal, modify it or deny it. Any of the five CPUC Commissioners may sponsor an alternate decision. The proposed decision, and any alternate decisions, will be discussed and voted upon at a scheduled CPUC Voting Meeting. The Office of Ratepayer Advocates (ORA) may review this Application. ORA is the independent consumer advocate within the CPUC with a legislative mandate to represent investor-owned utility customers to obtain the lowest possible rate for service consistent with reliable and safe service levels. ORA has a multi-disciplinary staff with expertise in economics, finance, accounting and engineering. For more information about ORA, please call 1-415-703-1584, email ora@cpuc.ca.gov or visit ORA’s website at www.ora.ca.gov. STAY INFORMED If you would like to follow this proceeding, or any other issue before the CPUC, you may use the CPUC’s free subscription service. Sign up at: http://subscribecpuc.cpuc.ca.gov/. If you would like to learn how you can participate in the proceeding, have informal comments about the Application, or have questions about the CPUC processes, you may access the CPUC’s Public Advisor Office (PAO) webpage at http://consumers.cpuc.ca.gov/pao/. You may also contact the PAO as follows: Email: public.advisor@cpuc.ca.gov Mail: CPUC Public Advisor’s Office 505 Van Ness Avenue San Francisco, CA 94102 Call: 1-866-849-8390 (toll-free) or 1-415-703-2074 TTY: 1-866-836-7825 (toll-free) or 1-415-703-5282 If you are writing or emailing the PAO, please include the application number (2019 GT&S Application; A.17 -11-009). All comments will be circulated to the Commissioners, the assigned Judge and appropriate CPUC staff, and will become public record.

GILROY DISPATCH

Chemistry professor wins jazz music award BROADCAST FROM THE TOP FLOOR OF HIS GILROY HOME, BRADLEY STONE HAS THE FORMULA FOR SUCCESS By David Goll

San Jose State University

James Tensuan/San Jose State University

Even as a toddler, Bradley Stone had an uncanny ability to choose music to entertain visitors to his parents’ Chicago home. “When I was one and a half years old, my mother would ask friends and relatives to make a musical request,” Stone said. “They would look at her and say, ‘How can he do that when he’s so young?’ She would just laugh and say, ‘Go ahead. He can do it!'” It was an early indication of what would become a lifelong passion and avocation. This past August, a very grown-up Stone observed the 32nd anniversary of his hire date at SJSU. But he is not a professor in the School of Music and Dance or even the Department of TV, Radio, Film and Theatre. He has been professor of Chemistry at SJSU since the 1985-86 academic year and served a stint as the department’s chair between 2003 and 2012. Along with all of his accomplishments in his chosen academic field, Stone takes great pride in winning the 2017 Bobby Jackson Award for Jazz Programmer of the Year by the weekly online industry publication, JazzWeek. It’s the third time the San Jose State professor has won the honor (tenth time overall as Jazz Programmer of the Year), this time for his weekly jazz music program titled “The Creative Source” available through the SoulandJazz. com website, based in the United Kingdom. Stone records the show, surrounded by his extensive collection including tens of thousands of CDs, in the radio studio he built in his Gilroy home. Nominations for

the award come from jazz artists, record label executives, promoters, publicists and other programmers. “It’s extremely gratifying to win this award,” said Stone, who received his award in the Internet and Non-Terrestrial category during an August ceremony at San Jose’s Hotel De Anza. “It’s wonderful to be recognized for your work by other members of the jazz music family. I like to think I’m recognized as a good programmer in the industry, and that others look to me for my playlists.” Jackson, a legendary Cleveland-based jazz programmer, became a good friend of Stone’s after the pair met years ago at industry gatherings. Jackson introduced Stone to Brian Hurst of SoulandJazz.com via a phone call just days before he died suddenly at age 57 in December 2013. “I felt it was meant to be,” Stone said of the collaboration with Hurst at SoulandJazz.com. Hurst, CEO of SoulandJazz. com, said Stone’s weekly selection of music — emphasizing jazz fusion and progressive jazz — is marked by his devotion to providing a platform for new artists, premiering music that would otherwise “fall between the cracks.” “His accolades over the years suggest he’s a man to be both respected and trusted and in that word trust, you can begin to understand why people would consider his music selection to become the starting point to discover new artists, new styles, new sounds,” Hurst said. It is motivated not only by Stone’s love of this Americanborn musical genre but of a variety of musical styles, including rock. He played in a rock band during his undergraduate college days at the University of Illinois, Chicago in the 1970s, then had his first disc jockeying job at campus radio station

JAZZ FORMULA Chemistry Professor Bradley Stone has been named the 2017 Bobby Jackson Award

for Jazz Programmer of the Year by the weekly online industry publication, JazzWeek. He has a studio and piles and piles of CDs in his Gilroy studio. WQAX while pursuing a Ph.D. in chemical physics at Indiana University, Bloomington in the 1980s. He later became jazz music director at radio station KUCI while a postdoctoral research associate at the University of California, Irvine. “I’ve been a music head my entire life,” Stone said. He further honed his radio skills and expanded his knowledge of jazz and other musical styles just a week after arriving at San Jose State. That was when he launched a Saturday deejay gig at campus radio station KSJS that lasted from 1985 to 1997, then again from 2001 to 2012. He served as the station’s jazz music director for virtually that entire time, as well as a faculty adviser to students in the university’s Department of TV,

Radio, Film and Theatre, before stepping down in early 2013. “I have mentored literally thousands of students at KSJS,” Stone said of the job he did teaching on-air and behind-thescenes skills, as well as radio station management. “He was instrumental in helping KSJS win national awards for being the best collegiate jazz station, besides all of the individual awards he won for programming,” said William Reckmeyer, a retired professor of anthropology. “I’m a rock ‘n’ roll guy, and I know a bit about jazz, but when you have a good friend, you take an interest in what they love. Brad is so knowledgeable and passionate about jazz.” Stone developed an interest in the sciences at age 6,

becoming fascinated by chemistry, physics, astronomy, entomology and geology as a youngster. Though focusing his academic career on the interdisciplinary field of chemical physics, Stone has also worked in molecular astrophysics, astrochemistry, biomedical engineering, computational fluid dynamics, forensic chemistry, nonlinear optics and spectroscopy. “I would say there is the mathematical connection,” he said. “Music theory definitely has a mathematical basis. The mathematical relationship between frequencies of notes is the basis for harmony. So, I don’t think it is particularly surprising that a large percentage of scientists are also musicians, at least on some level.”

Art Atax

Contributed

A new Gilroy gallery in the yellow Victorian across from Station 55 opens Saturday and in what is a local tradition, the space houses two unlikely partners. In the front, there is art. In the back, you can get your taxes done. Mother and daughter team Deborah McEwan and Emily McEwan-Upright have done tax work together, but Emily is also an artist and will display her work in the front space. The two live in Gilroy but have been working in Monterey for years. They finally found a space to call home in their home town. “We wanted to be part of the downtown revitalization,” said Emily, 33. Emily, who paints under the name Emily May, did these paintings during an artist residency in College Station,Texas last summer and exhibited at a solo show ““Experiential Art: (Re)Use & (Re)Imagine,” at the Arts Council of Brazos Valley.

HOME-GROWN ARTIST Two paintings are among those on exhibit by Emily May, known to friends and family as Emily McEwan-Upright, at a new Gilroy gallery across from Station 55 in Gilroy.

Solar to bring 75 percent of Gav power INVESTMENT EXPECTED TO SAVE $12.5M IN ENERGY COSTS OVER 30 YEARS

Contributed

Gavilan College has gone solar. The community college has selected SunPower to deploy a fully integrated solar and storage project at its Gilroy campus. A SunPower Helix Carport system, totaling about 1.4 megawatts, will be installed across two of the college’s largest parking lots, enhanced by a 250-kilowatt (500 kilowatt-hour) energy storage solution from Stem, Inc. to help deliver significant demand charge savings. System construction is currently underway, with completion expected before the end of 2017. “Investing in cleaner energy while providing covered parking for our students with this solar carport system made complete sense for us,” said Frederick Harris, Vice President of Administrative Services at Gavilan College. To help finance the $5.5 million project, Gavilan Joint Community College District secured U.S. Department of Treasury clean renewable energy

bonds with a 1.05 percent interest rate after a federal tax credit, which allow public sector entities to fund renewable energy projects. The district will own the solar power system along with the associated renewable energy credits. “Together with SunPower, we have designed a unique system that will offset approximately 75 percent of our electricity use on the Gilroy campus,” said Harris, also noting that the project “includes a storage system allowing us to avoid expensive utility demand charges, feature enhanced parking lot lighting, and incorporate up to 102 electric car charging stations in compliance with the California Green Building Code.” The investment is expected to bring the school upwards of $250,000 to $280,000 a year in energy and related savings and an estimated $12.5 million in energy costs over 30 years, according to Gavilan’s announcement. SunPower offers a 25-year Demand Assurance Guarantee that covers product performance, energy production, operation and maintenance, according to Harris. “With more than 32 years of experience in solar, colleges across the country rely

SAVING SUN Gavilan’s new parking structures will provide shade for cars while harnessing the sun to pay for electric costs. on SunPower to deliver leading renewable energy solutions that best fit their needs,” said

Nam Nguyen, SunPower executive vice president. “We look forward to helping Gavilan College

GILROY AIMS TO FINISH UNDEFEATED Cheeto Barrera Sports Editor

Gilroy took one more step toward one of those rare seasons thanks to its 34-14 win over Hillsdale Friday. The Mustangs improved to 12-0 overall and advanced to the Central Coast Section Division V title game next week. This will be Gilroy’s first trip to a CCS championship game since losing to Oak Grove in the 2007 Division III title game. Gilroy will play No. 2 Menlo School who advanced with a tight

26-21 win over Scotts Valley. Gilroy will shoot for a perfect season and the first CCS football championship in school history 7pm Friday at Westmont High School “The kids have earned it,” said coach Jubenal Rodriguez. “This was the expectation and we just got to finish.” The win comes a year after the Mustangs had their hearts broken in the Division IV semifinals game in Soledad. “This time last year we made promises that we kept. We made those promises a reality and this is huge for the city of Gilroy and for our team,” said runningback Joseph Barnes. “We’re the first ever to go 12-0 into the finals and it feels great.”

The 8-4 Menlo-School Knights are looking to avenge a loss of their own, in returning to the CCS Division V a year after losing to Half Moon Bay. Menlo will likely feature the best quarterback the Mustangs will have seen since Christopher early in October. Emilio Simbeck has thrown for slightly more than 2,000 yards and 24 touchdowns. He is paired with runningback David Schmaier who has nearly 800 rushing yards. But the Mustangs will have seen three quality quarterbacks this season, including Live Oak and Carmel. Both those games, however, were early in the season. To get there, Gilroy had to overcome a rocky first quarter

and a Hillsdale runningback who at times was hard to bring down and kept pounding the Mustang defensive line. But after getting over a couple of hiccups, Gilroy showed the tenacity that got the Mustangs to the semifinal game for the second year in a row. Barnes rushed for 117 yards and a 60-yard touchdown and threw for a 51-yard TD strike that turned the tide of the game. Hillsdale went up 14-7 at the 6:46 mark of the first quarter following an early pick-6 and a big run to put the Mustangs on the ropes. Read more about the semifinal game online at gilroydispatch.com

Cougars get revenge over Alisal, look to finish their magical run CHRISTOPHER IN FINALS FOR FIRST TIME EVER; TAKES ON TOUGH LELAND SQUAD SATURDAY Cheeto Barrera Sports Editor

Christopher’s 34-7 win over Alisal Saturday meant a little more than just revenge. And perhaps it meant a little bit more than just a berth into the Central Coast Section Division IV championship game. Two years ago, the Cougars were a 2-8 team. Last year they were a 1-9

squad completely outmatched in the Gabilan Division. And with the win over Alisal, Christopher (10-2 overall) has erased all of the pain of the last two seasons by erasing the pain from Oct. 13. A month and a half ago—still stinging from a loss to Gilroy the week before and seeing the practice routine get disjointed because of smoke from the Sonoma fires— Christopher had to watch the Trojans celebrate on its field following a 28-21 double overtime game. Now Christopher sets up a date with destiny against Leland, who

is coming off a 52-20 win over Santa Clara to improve to 11-1 overall. The Chargers won a highly competitive Blossom Valley Athletic LeagueSanta Teresa Division to earn the No. 1 seed in the Division IV playoffs. They will clash 7pm at Westmont High School in Campbell. Leland will easily be one of the toughest teams Christopher has seen either since Live Oak in Week 2 or for the entire season. “Leland is very good. I went and watched them last night and they are very, very, very good,” Pierleoni said. “They have an outstanding runningback.

Aggressiveness defines Cougars in 17 YOUNG AND QUICK TEAM LOOKS TO HOLD ITS OWN AGAINST ALL COMERS THIS YEAR Cheeto Barrera Sports Editor

that most people like him don’t have,” Jensen said. “He is not just fast, he’s blazing quick and that really separates him. I expect him to have a monster senior year.” Eric Ortega played small forward last year but has to move to center. Jensen said because Ortega is not playing his natural position, he expect there to be a mismatch under the basket with Ortega using his speed to confound other centers. And in taking that role, Jensen said Ortega is really showing how much he’s grown. “Eric has flipped a whole 180. He has matured so much,” Jensen said. “He has become the vocal leader on the team, in a positive way. He’s the

one who wants to speak up and help guys get better and motivates them.” Christopher kicked things off on Nov. 20 with a sportsmanship game against Gilroy where the Cougars’ speed and depth resulted in a 72-29 win. The Cougars officially opened the season against Trinity Christian on Tuesday night. Jensen said he has given the green light to all his players to get after it on the court, whether it’s taking an open shot, setting up a trap or play aggressive defense. “I really trust my group,” Jensen said. “They know the game well enough that I don’t have to call out a play everytime. I don’t have to call out a defense. We’re just going to do what we do and we’re

Christopher took its lumps a year ago as the boys basketball team adjusted to a new coach and to his way of doing things. Now Derek Jensen has had a full offseason to get to know his team and vice versa and he is expecting big things from the Cougars in 2017-18. “I’m expecting really big things from them, not just because they’re older but because we’ve all been together for a year now and they know what I expect of them,” Jensen said. “They’re all great teammates.”

Christopher won’t be winning any contests of height, but Jensen expects his boys to make up for that with tempo on the floor. “We are fast and we’re aggressive. Really aggressive. I mean really, really, really, really aggressive,” Jensen said. “I think that sets us apart. You don’t see that many teams who play that good of defense. I think that’s what separates us and it’s a whole team effort.” Leading that tempo will be guard Dean Tognetti, who is coming off a season where he was second on the team in scoring and has only gotten better, Jensen said. “His work ethic is insane and he’s blessed with just blazing quickness

TAKING THE HIT Anthony Burns goes up against a Gilroy defender as he attempts to score during their game on Nov. 20. going to do it better than every other team. I don’t have to do much more than get them organized.” Jensen said he wants to

keep his eye on freshman Dunkin Ellis who is tall and lanky and could really make an impact on teams this year.

CHEETO BARRERA: CRUNCH TIME

Summer’s over; time to go back to school First let me say that this column is probably more for me than anything else, so please forgive me in advance as I take a few column inches to reflect on my time doing something that I love. This week marks the final time that I will be able to call myself a journalist, a title I have worn for nearly 15 years and a title that I never thought I would give up. Alas, it is time to officially

announce that I am moving on to greener pastures. I’m taking my ball and going home. I’m turning out the lights one final time as I walk out the door for good. I’m not sure how many more cliches I can think of at the moment, but I’m sure there are some others. My journey down this road began back in high school writing for the Oak Leaf at Live Oak High School and took me through San Jose State with some detours through Morgan Hill and Gilroy. It brought me to the deserts of California

and finally back to Morgan Hill and Gilroy where I finally hang em up. This job has allowed me to tell so many amazing stories, meet some incredible people and experience life through the eyes of countless people. Their stories have made me laugh and have inspired me and have angered me and have made me cry. I’ll never forget the story of a woman whose doctor misdiagnosed breast cancer, calling it a cyst that needed vitamine E to clear up. And

not a month later, I did a story on a high school girl who survived cancer and was donating her hair. She inspired a kindergartner to do the same. This job has that yin and yang where you are utterly depressed one day and uplifted the next. It has caused me to lose more sleep and forced me to pull more all nighters than I ever did in college. This job allowed me to travel all over this state, meet politicians and sports celebrities. This job let me cover the Stanley

Cup. This job helped me meet my wife. It was fun. Now I’m going to take my leap at a new profession of teaching. Thank you to everyone who made this journey so much fun to be on. Thank you to Walt Glines for giving a college sophomore a chance. Thank you to Nathan Ahle and John Watkins who gave me my first full time job in the business. Thank you to Mark Derry for giving me a chance to come home.

Thank you to Brett Paolucci, CJ Goularte, Mike Kiefer and everyone at Live Oak who have helped me over the last year to make this change possible. And thanks to my coworkers past and present for making this job a little more enjoyable at times. Everyone at Live Oak and Sobrato and Gilroy and Christopher and Oakwood and Gavilan you are all great and it has been my pleasure to have worked with you all.

Young Mustangs aim high this year COMING OFF A ROUGH SEASON LAST YEAR AND JUST TWO RETURNERS, GILROY HOPES TO SEE GROWTH Cheeto Barrera Sports Editor

Suarez said he expects Grumin to step up as a leader as a junior. “This off season he has really worked on finding his voice. That’s one thing I’m really proud of him for is finding his voice as a leader” Suarez said. “He does a great job of leading by example.” The other returner is Jaeru Are, who is also a junior and has shown signs of growth over the off season. Suarez said they put in a ton of effort in the summer and fall and now that the season is here, the effort needs to bear fruit. “Now it’s time to show them that hard work really does pay off and the preparation showed today from Mason. He’s the hardest worker,” Suarez said. Suarez said his team is going to need to play

Gilroy and Mike Suarez certainly took their lumps last season. The Mustangs went 4-19 overall and 1-10 in Pacific Division play in the 2016-17 season. Now they are back on the court with a lot of new faces and raring to get out there and prove what they can do. Gilroy will feature one senior in Adam Thompson and five juniors and is still waiting for football players to return from their historic run this season. “We told them this year the team is going to be tough. We’ve got to

be more mentally tough,’ Suarez said. “I think for our younger guys, it’s going to be something they’re going to have to work on. We’re going to have to get some experience to gain experience to get better. They’re going to need to be patient because they’re going to compete against some great teams.” Suarez said he is excited to have Thompson on the team because he is so coachable and is eager to learn more of the game. “For those two guys, it’s really about gaining some varsity experience,” Suarez said. “We’ve only got two returners who have any varsity experience from last year.” Mason Grumin is one of two returners on the squad and will by default have a ton of responsibility on this year’s squad.

No State license will be approved for a business that violates local ordinances; and WHEREAS, the City Council desires to update the marijuana regulations in the Gilroy City Code to maintain the City’s existing prohibition on commercial marijuana activities, and expressly make clear, in light of passage of the AUMA, that all such uses (whether medical or recreational) continue to be prohibited in all zones throughout the City, and to preserve local control over such uses, NOW, THEREFORE, THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF GILROY DOES HEREBY ORDAIN AS FOLLOWS: SECTION I Gilroy City Code, Chapter 30, ZONING ORDINANCE, Section 30.2.20, “Definitions” is hereby amended to add the following definitions: “Commercial marijuana activity” has the same meaning as “commercial cannabis activity” as provided in California Business & Professions Code § 26001(k) as may be amended, and means and includes cultivation, possession, manufacture, distribution, processing, storing, laboratory testing, packaging, labeling, transportation, delivery or sale of marijuana or marijuana products. “Commercial marijuana activity” also includes the activities of any business or nonprofit licensees by the state or other government entity under chapter 3.5 of Division 8 or Division 10 of the Business and Professions Code. “Marijuana delivery” has the same meaning as “Delivery” as provided in California Business & Professions Code § 26001(p) as may be amended, and includes the commercial transfer of marijuana or marijuana products to a customer. Marijuana delivery also includes the use by a retailer of any technology platform, whether owned or controlled by the retailer or independently licensed, that enables customers to arrange for or facilitate the commercial transfer by a licensed retailer of marijuana or marijuana products. SECTION II Gilroy City Code, Chapter 30, ZONING ORDINANCE, Section 30.2.20, “Definitions” is hereby amended to modify the definition of “marijuana dispensary” or “marijuana dispensaries” to read as follows:“Marijuana dispensary” or “marijuana dispensaries” means any business, office, store, facility, location, retail or wholesale component of any establishment, cooperative or collective that delivers (as delivery is defined in Business and Professions Code Section 26001(p) or any successor statute thereto) whether mobile or otherwise, dispenses, distributes, exchanges, transmits, transports, sells or provides marijuana to any person for any reason, including members of any medical marijuana cooperative or collective consistent with the August 2008 Guidelines for the Security and Non-Diversion of Marijuana Grown for Medical Use, as may be amended from time to time, that was issued by the office of the Attorney General for the State of California or subject to the provisions of the California Health and Safety Code Section 11362.5 (Compassionate Use Act of 1996) or California Health and Safety Code Sections 11362.7 to 11362.83 (Medical Marijuana Program Act), or otherwise engages in any commercial marijuana activity. SECTION III Gilroy City Code, Chapter 30, ZONING ORDINANCE, Section 30.45.30, “Legislative findings and statement of purpose—Prohibition of marijuana cultivation, processing, delivery and dispensary uses.” is hereby amended to read as follows: 30.45.30 Legislative findings and statement of purpose—Prohibition of marijuana cultivation, processing, delivery and dispensary uses. (a) The city council finds that the prohibitions on marijuana cultivation (except as otherwise permitted herein), marijuana processing, marijuana delivery and marijuana dispensaries are necessary for the preservation and protection of the public health, safety, and welfare for the city and its community. The city council’s prohibition of such activities is within the authority conferred upon the city council in its charter and state law. (b) Effective January 1, 2016, three bills (AB 266, AB 243, and SB 643), collectively known as the Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (“MCRSA”), govern cultivation, processing, transporting, testing, and distribution of medical marijuana to qualified patients, and contain statutory provisions that (1) Allow local governments to enact ordinances expressing their intent to prohibit the cultivation of marijuana and their intent not to administer a conditional permit program for the cultivation of marijuana; (2) Expressly provide that the MCRSA does not supersede or limit local authority for local law enforcement activity, enforcement of local ordinance, or enforcement of local permit or licensing requirements regarding marijuana; (3) Expressly provide that the MCRSA does not limit the authority or remedies of a local government under any provision of law regarding marijuana, including but not limited to a local government’s right to make and enforce within its limits all police regulations not in conflict with general laws; (4) Require a local government that wishes to prevent marijuana delivery activity from operating within the local government’s boundaries to enact an ordinance affirmatively banning such delivery activity. (c) On November 8, 2016, the California voters passed Proposition 64 (referred to as “The Adult Use of Marijuana Act” (“AUMA”)). Effective November 9, 2016, the AUMA legalized use and possession of nonmedical marijuana by adults, and directs the creation of a state regulatory system for the sale, cultivation and processing of marijuana and marijuana products. Under the AUMA, cities may adopt and enforce local ordinances, including zoning and land use requirements, to regulate marijuana businesses or to completely prohibit the establishment or operation of such businesses within the City’s jurisdiction. The state will not approve a state license for a business that violates local ordinances. (d) The city council finds that this chapter: (1) expresses its intent to prohibit the cultivation (except as otherwise permitted herein), delivery, and distribution of marijuana in the city and to not administer a permit program for the cultivation of marijuana in the city; (2) exercises its local authority to enact and enforce local regulations and ordinances, including those regarding the permitting, licensing, or other entitlement of the activities prohibited by this chapter ; (3) exercises its police power to enact and enforce regulations for the public benefit, safety, and welfare of the city and its community; and (4) expressly prohibits the delivery of marijuana in the city. SECTION IV Gilroy City Code, Chapter 30, ZONING ORDINANCE, Section 30.45.40, “Prohibited Activities.” is hereby amended to read as follows: 30.45.40 Prohibited activities. (a) Except as otherwise permitted herein, marijuana cultivation, marijuana processing, marijuana delivery, and marijuana dispensaries are prohibited activities in the city, except where the city is preempted by federal or state law from enacting a prohibition on any such activity. No use permit, variance, building permit, or any other entitlement, license, or permit, whether administrative or discretionary, shall be approved or issued for the activities of marijuana cultivation, marijuana processing, marijuana delivery, or the establishment or operation of a marijuana dispensary in the city, and no person shall otherwise establish or conduct such activities in the city, except where the city is preempted by federal or state law from enacting a prohibition on any such activity for which the use permit, variance, building permit, or any other entitlement, license, or permit is sought. (b) Commercial marijuana activities of all types are expressly prohibited in all zones and all specific plan areas in the City of Gilroy. No person shall establish, operate, conduct or allow a commercial marijuana activity anywhere within the City. This subsection is meant to prohibit all activities for which a state license is required pursuant to the AUMA or the MCRSA, and the City will not issue any permit, license, or other entitlement for any activity for which a state license is required under the AUMA or the MCRSA. SECTION V Gilroy City Code, Chapter 30, ZONING ORDINANCE,Section 30.45.45, “Indoor Cultivation for Personal Use.” is hereby added as follows: 30.45.45 Indoor Cultivation for Personal Use. Indoor cultivation of six (6) or fewer live marijuana plants is permitted within a single private residence or inside an accessory structure located on the grounds of a private residence, only to the extent that it is in compliance with the limits and requirements established under California Health and Safety Code Sections 11362.1, 11362.2, 11362.3, 11362.4 and 11362.45 and any other applicable state laws. Cultivation outdoors upon the grounds of a private residence is prohibited in accordance with California Health and Safety Code Section 11362.2(b)(3). SECTION VI If any section, subsection, subdivision, sentence, clause or phrase of this Ordinance is for any reason held to be unconstitutional or otherwise void or invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this Ordinance. The City Council hereby declares that it would have passed this Ordinance and each section, subsection, subdivision, sentence, clause or phrase thereof, irrespective of the fact that any one or more sections, subsections, subdivisions, sentences, clauses or phrases be declared unconstitutional or otherwise void or invalid. SECTION VII This ordinance, pursuant to Gilroy City Charter, Article VI, Section 602, is hereby declared by the City Council to be necessary as an emergency measure and shall take effect immediately and be in full force and effect after its adoption and approval because the City Council has found that the Federal Controlled Substances Act makes unlawful and subject to federal prosecution the use, possession, and cultivation of marijuana; that several California cities and counties have experienced offensive and serious adverse impacts associated with commercial marijuana activities; that commercial marijuana activities increase risks of criminal activity, degrade the natural environment, and pose fire hazards; that the AUMA and the MCRSA do not create limitations on local land use authority to regulate commercial marijuana activities; that an ordinance prohibiting all commercial marijuana activities is necessary and appropriate to maintain and protect the public health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Gilroy; and that in order to ensure the City of Gilroy maintain local decision making authority to prohibit and not license any commercial marijuana activities in the City that such an ordinance prohibiting all commercial marijuana activities be effective prior to January 1, 2018.
