Keeping us all safe from encroaching Episcopalians, good job!
A Superior Court judge has upheld Pacific Grove’s right to pursue a cross-complaint in an ongoing legal battle over expansion of a retirement home into a neighborhood.
After a January hearing, city-appointed hearing officer David Spradling found that Canterbury Woods committed four violations of city zoning laws by having dwellings outside the retirement-home campus as additional client units and providing them the same meals and housekeeping services.
He said Canterbury Woods violated the area’s single-family residential zoning by introducing a commercial use in the neighborhood when it expanded beyond the main retirement complex. But he didn’t find the retirement home in violation of its use permit.
