From time to time, it’s a good idea to check the county legal notices in the Amador Ledger-Dispatch and learn more about what’s happening with county businesses. That’s especially true now that we’re at the beginning of a new year. So, what’s going on?

CEDS Comment Period Open

The county 2021-2025 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) draft is now open for public comment. The public comment period started this past Saturday, January 23, and continues through Monday, March 8. You can get the CEDS draft and the appendix from the County website.

If you have comments, you can e-mail General Services Administration director Jon Hopkins or Senior Administrative Analyst Kim Holland at the General Services Administration office.  You can also call the County Economic Development Department at 209-223-6733 to give your feedback and/or get a printed copy of the CEDS report.

The Board of Supervisors is scheduled to take up the CEDS at its March 9 regular meeting.

Engineering Deck

Now that we’re into 2021 with both feet, there are a lot of existing businesses renewing their fictitious business name statements. Sometimes these statements aren’t quite right, such as the Main Street Emporium in Jackson renewing its business license at 26 Main Street…when the actual address is 29 Main Street.

Delta Engineering 33 Main Street JacksonNext door to Main Street Emporium, a new business has opened. If you’ve been on Main Street in Jackson, you know the street is dotted with professional offices as befits a county seat. The new business at 33 Main Street is Delta Engineering, which is owned by Sutter Creek Mayor Robin Peters.

You may also know this location as the former site of Roots & Wings Farmhouse Market, which moved to Sutter Creek last year. Through the windows, it appears Delta Engineering has established itself, but there are no business markings or signs on the windows yet. There is no website or any other social media profiles for the business as of this writing.

To the Farmhouse

A new home-based business that has been selling its wares at Makers on Main in Sutter Creek seems to be growing. Ye Olde Farmhouse is a group of crafters that bills itself on its Facebook page as a “little shop of needful things.” These things include home décor, soap, lotions, and baby items. The Facebook page also states that the crafters will personalize most items at no extra charge.

Ye Olde Farmhouse has also reserved a domain name but only a placeholder site is there. For now, you can get information and photos about what Ye Old Farmhouse does on its Facebook page.

Different Vintage

If you’ve been to Plymouth, you may have stopped by Lala’s Vintage, which is in the shopping center on the southeast corner of Highway 49 and Shenandoah Road. (It’s in the southwestern corner of the photo at right.)

Highway 49 Roundabout Plymouth CaliforniaLala’s Vintage faces Shenandoah Road around the corner from Marlene and Glen’s Diner and El Dorado Savings Bank. Lala’s recently filed an abandonment of the use of the Lala’s Vintage name and filed a new fictitious business name statement for Zivah Vintage.

The store’s Facebook page is called Lala’s Memories, but the description states the name of the store is Lala’s Vintage. As of the posting of the fictitious name statement on January 22, the store is still not doing business under the name Zivah Vintage, but if you’re a Lala’s fan then you may want to stay tuned.

Time to Think Pawsitive?

The last fictitious name statement I read was from a new company called Think Pawsitive based in Pine Grove. The notice states the business hasn’t opened yet, and there is no website or any social media pages for the business as of this writing.

Other businesses with the name Think Pawsitive are pet training centers, so if you live in Pine Grove then you may soon have an option for training your dog. (If you want to try to train your cat, good luck to you.)
