Keep one eye on the street.
Business and civic leaders in Monterey, Pacific Grove and Carmel are all expressing enthusiasm for the “parklet” concept. Businesses can add outdoor space by creating parklets that move tables out onto city properties, such as sidewalks and parking spaces.
City officials in Monterey are considering removing one lane on Alvarado Street to provide for more room for businesses to expand outside. Carmel has made sidewalks available for more than 30 restaurants and Pacific Grove is hearing nothing but glowing responses to the 11 parklets that line Lighthouse Avenue.
There are multiple ways to construct parklets, but the two most common are moving tables out onto former parking spaces or moving the sidewalk out to the parking spaces so patrons can sit between the sidewalk and the restaurants.
“It’s safer not putting diners next to traffic,” Johnson said.

County Superior Court in August 2018, ajury determined that the attorney general’s claims against Matthew G. Gregory, and his son, Matthew J. Gregory, were true, and that they had used misleading and deceptive fundraising practices in running unlawful charity raffles in California. Jurors also found that the elder Gregory’s wife, Danella, and daughter, Gina, had unjustly enriched themselves in the scheme.
The family used a Carmel post office box to raise money through its charities to establish a therapeutic horse riding program for veterans in Carmel Valley. But Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who called the family “con artists” in a 2018 news release, said the charities were fake, and the jury found they failed to use the money to help veterans. Instead, prosecutors said, family members spent the donations on dining, traveling, paying off credit card debt, and shopping, including at Victoria’s Secret.

But them mobile home owners aint no dummies.
Residents who live in Pacific Grove’s only mobile home park have filed suit against the city over a zoning dispute that they fear would make a strip of land that goes down the middle of their nearly 11-acre private property a park that might eventually be opened to the public. A 25-page complaint filed April 17 by residents of the Monarch Pines Mobile Home Park challenges a finding by the city that a roughly 50-foot-wide undefined strip in the mobile home park — which used to be a railroad right of way — is actually zoned open space, not residential like the rest of the park.
The city maintains the error was discovered on a zoning map and that it should be “corrected.” However, residents of the park at 700 Briggs Ave. argue that no portion of their property has ever been designated as open space, and that a city map outlining open space zones “clearly shows” that.

Can always go to Modesto and be free as you can be.
The City of Monterey will be enforcing face masks and closing beaches for the Fourth of July weekend.
According to Hans Uslar, city manager, Del Monte, San Carlos and McAbee beaches will be closed on Saturday and Sunday of the upcoming weekend. Ocean activities will still be allowed.
I think it is crap, I mean everyone is sitting at home not doing anything how are you going to celebrate freedom if you guys can’t go anywhere, can’t do anything?” questioned John Feliciano of Modesto.

“Our code enforcement officer has the authority to cite without warning anyone not wearing a face covering in our business areas,” Uslar said. “People and businesses know by now that masks are required and we have to compel compliance to reduce the spread of the virus. Our educational approach has shown success, yet we need to do much better.”
The citations will begin at $100 and become more expensive for subsequent violations. If a person is found in a business not wearing a mask, both the individual and the business will be cited. Uslar said the Monterey County Health Department order provided for a criminal citation and a $1,000 fine. But by making it an administrative citation, fines can be handled within the city of Monterey without having to go through the county District Attorney’s office.
