KPIX-TV Eyewitness News report from April 9th 1968 by Pat O'Brien in the Napa Valley, where the Napa county Board of Supervisors and the Napa County Planning Commission have just passed a zoning ordinance creating the Napa Valley Agricultural Preserve. It is intended to protect the agricultural use of land in the valley - particularly winemaking - against being sold for subdivision housing. Includes interviews with John Daniel Jr. (arguing against the ordinance) and Louis P. Martini (explaining why he thinks it necessary). Also aerial views of the Napa Valley landscape and subdivision housing tracts. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
