One hired landscaper blows debris one way and another blows it back. Battery and electric blowers get a pass.
“The direction we are moving in is enforceable, better for the environment, and will bring some noise relief to our neighborhoods,” councilwoman Jenny McAdams told The Pine Cone Sept. 19. “Carmel has had a successful prohibition of gas-powered leaf blowers since 1975. This is long overdue for Pacific Grove and I am grateful for Mayor Pro-Tem Robert Huitt’s leadership on this issue.”
The council’s unanimous decision directed city staff to work with the city attorney on amending its municipal code and return with a draft ordinance to be considered by the council. Councilmen Nick Smith and Joe Amelio were absent at the meeting.

Paraphrase said the rendition of the classic play, which will be produced Oct. 11-13, “extends its relevance to the Pacific Grove community.” “We’ve had music in the park before but never a play,” Chamber president Moe Ammar told The Pine Cone, who said the intent is to offer an outdoor theater experience similar to Carmel’s Forest Theater. “I’m excited about it and I hope it works.”
“Audience members can also choose to bring their own food, folding chairs, and blankets, and enjoy a picnic during the performance.”

Maybe the butterflies hate the tourists too. I certainly avoid places where they gather.
Roughly 30 people — sanctuary docents, volunteers and interested members of the public — gathered in the sanctuary Thursday morning to listen to Stuart Weiss, the chief scientist contracted by the city to develop long-term planning for the 2.5-acre site. Weiss described what goals he and the city want to accomplish to help monarchs, including dealing with tree species, microclimates and the plants monarchs rely on for nectar.
Why So Few Monarchs?
I’d buy the man a cup of coffee to move the open house signs that block the sidewalks.
The Sheriff’s Office did not release the name of the man taking brochures because of the ongoing investigation and because taking the brochures isn’t a crime, Baldwin said.
“He has some personal beliefs he is pursuing,” said Sgt. Dee Baldwin. “We want the behavior stopped.”
The man is taking brochures from publicly accessible listing locations, Baldwin said, which means it isn’t considered a crime. It would be considered a crime if he was cited for trespassing. The man would have to return to a property after receiving a warning from deputies that he can’t be there, and the homeowner or real estate agent at the property would need to want to press charges.
The man told deputies that he expects to stop taking brochures Oct. 1, according to Baldwin.

Pretzel carts, hot-dog stands and jewelry vendors are coming to a sidewalk near you. Monterey is adopting rules to regulate these tiny businesses following the signing of a state law prohibiting cities from banning the practice.
Three areas in Monterey Cole is recommending to the council to ban or heavily restrict vendors are at Cannery Row, Monterey Bay Recreation Trail and Fairgrounds Road.
Cannery Row is singled out because of its abnormally high volume of pedestrians and the subsequent safety issues that would present, Cole said. The restriction would prohibit sidewalk vendors between the hours of 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends and holidays. The restriction would be on sidewalks between David and Hoffman avenues.

Pushy carnival atmosphere is not just for Carmel cosmetic shops.
Even if the city wanted to keep food carts and other vendors off sidewalks its hands are tied, with certain exceptions. California Senate Bill 946 was passed late last year with the idea of enabling small businesses that cannot afford a storefront to also make a living.
The law, also called the Safe Sidewalk Vending Act, stipulates that California cities cannot ban vending in parks, cannot determine where vendors can operate and are no longer required to ask permission from adjacent businesses to operate. The exceptions to these mandates are spelled out specifically in the language of the legislation but can be summarized as restrictions necessary to ensure the “health, safety or welfare concerns” of the public.
