Seaside Auto Mall Renovation To Start

The renovation area, bordered by La Salle and Broadway avenues and Del Monte and Fremont boulevards, will get updated roads, new light fixtures, a repaved central access street and new curbs and gutters.

City officials said Seaside receives about $3 million in tax revenue from the auto mall each year. That represents 60 percent of the city’s total annual sales-tax revenue and more than 20 percent of the city’s general fund revenue.

Maybe Seaside should pay Monterey a fee for every car sold What’s with the dealerships calling themselves “Monterey . . .” and being in Seaside?

Some dealerships skirt around the ID by using “Monterey Peninsula” in the name. Look at a map, Seaside is not on the peninsula.
