Residents closest to the most ghetto Pacific Grove have some real paranoia. Meth labs, street races and Wal Mart stores.
Project site neighbor John McClure said the development would “smell like a meth lab” and be as “noisy as a drag strip.”
A woman who said she was a licensed real estate broker argued property values were being “seriously damaged even by the rumors of this project.”
Another nearby resident said he was “horrified” when he heard about the project after paying “top dollar” for his home because it was located in an area where there are no Walmarts, Targets, 7-11 stores — or apartments.
