The San Joaquin County Planning Commission heard a short report from the Winery Ordinance Task Force, a group of wineries, neighbors and local organizations that are brainstorming ideas for an updated winery ordinance.
"Not a one of us is totally happy with what we've done. Everybody has had to give something," said Pat Patrick, Lodi Chamber of Commerce president.
The report offers new definitions of winery events and penalties for violating noise or parking rules. It also suggests that new wineries be required to build the winery part first, and any tasting rooms later.
County Planning Commission staff will review the report and discuss it at a future commission meeting.

Plans for a new health spa built by the owners of Wine & Roses were denied at a San Joaquin County Planning Commission meeting on Thursday. There was a full house in attendance and all commissioners were present for the decision.
Russ Munson applied to construct a health spa resort on a 2.3-acre property, the Windcrest estate, on the north side of Woodbridge Road just east of Lower Sacramento Road. The five-year plan would convert an existing pool house into a spa, a 3,850-square-foot residence into an inn with five rooms, and later build a 3,500-square-foot conference and event center.
