Nevada County “No Drone Zone” Ordinance Faces second Challenge

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.
