A local attorney who is attempting to get a “No Drone Zone” ordinance approved for circulation in Nevada County, two weeks ago submitted a revised draft to County Counsel after the first draft was dismissed in court. Lorraine Reich says the County has responded, again, by filing a complaint to find her second proposed Initiative invalid.

Reich says she became concerned about the use of domestic drones when the Federal Aviation Administration passed an act that integrates UN-maned aerial vehicles, or Domestic Drones, into the national airspace system by 2015. Reich argues there are no laws or regulations as to who may purchase a drone and how they will use it.
An October 18th hearing date has been scheduled in Nevada County Superior Court before Judge Dowling to hear arguments for making a ruling on the Drone Ordinance.
