Lease goes to longtime Pacific Grove business while newcomers named after a location 50 miles away object.
The Pacific Grove City Council last week OK’d a lease with the owners of a popular beachfront business that rents bicycles, kayaks, wetsuits and other recreational equipment out of what’s dubbed “The Cave” at Lovers Point Beach. Council members voted 5-2 Aug. 5 to approve a new lease with Frank and Michelle Knight, who have sold sundries and rented recreation equipment from the city-owned building on Ocean View
Joaquin Sullivan, owner of Big Sur Adventures, which owns a company in the American Tin Cannery that rents out e-bikes, claimed his less than 3-year-old company could “significantly increase revenue” for the city.
Mayor Bill Peake and councilwoman Jenny McAdams voted against the 5-year lease, which ends July 31, 2025.
