Clovis was incorporated as a city in February 1912. Sadly, the lumber mill burned down in 1914 and was never rebuilt.  Clovis still has remnants of its rich wild-west heritage, reflected in the slogan "Clovis – A Way of Life". The Clovis Rodeo is still in operation after 100 years.  The bronco-carnival features big hats with lots of cattle, farmer's market, and festival.  Recently "Old Town Clovis" was given a facelift of sorts to bring back its old charm and feeling - in a new (shiny) kind of way.

The permitting process will depend on the type of entitlement required by the final ordinance that is ultimately adopted. Typically, it requires an application which is reviewed by the DARM Director but may also require the Planning Commission and Council to consider the permit. An application usually requires a Site Plan and other site specific and business information to be submitted.

Beyond just offering a good meal, these events create community, says chef and co-owner Joseph Nelson. Diners share a family-style meal at one long table and inevitably find themselves making connections, he says. “It’s a bunch of people who have never met each other before, sitting down for a couple of hours,” Nelson says. “By the end of dinner, you’d think they’d known each other for years.”

"We conclude that the provision in the ordinance that classifies the cultivation of medical marijuana as a misdemeanor is preempted by California’s extensive statutory scheme addressing crimes, defenses and immunities relating to marijuana. Among other things, the attempt to criminalize possession and cultivation is not consistent with the obligation [Health and Safety Code] section 11362.71, subdivision (e) imposes on local officials not to arrest certain persons possessing or cultivating marijuana."
