NIMBYs In Del Monte Park Say It's For The Trees

Please think about the trees says the neighborhood that looks down on Pebble Beach workers who would live across the fence from them. As they continue to cover more ground for driveways and mini mansions.

Arguing that the Pebble Beach Co. should find an alternate site for its Del Monte Forest affordable housing apartment complex project that doesn’t include removal of 725 trees, the Del Monte Neighbors United group will get a chance to make its case before the Board of Supervisors next week.

“Thus, this appeal is not about blocking inclusionary housing,” he wrote. “This is about the removal of 725 mature trees in the Monterey pine forest, which has been fragmented and harmed by years of incremental development, and there are alternative projects that would still provide much-needed inclusionary housing without the commensurate environmental impacts.”

Pebble Beach Employee Housing Approved

Del Monte Park residents predict meth labs, jumper cables, fornication and other acts of low class across the fence. Did anyone mention that Del Monte Park has 60% of the town’s sex offenders?

After a three-hour hearing featuring more than two dozen neighbors speaking in opposition and a range of business and social interest groups speaking in support, along with a few company employees, the commission spent a few brief moments discussing the 24-unit lower-income apartment complex project before voting 6-0 to approve it.

Commissioner Martha Diehl, who made the motion to approve, said she understood the concerns of neighbors who opposed the project but said affordable housing was such an “overwhelming priority” along with open space preservation in the forest tied to the proposal that it outweighed any drawbacks.

The Perception Is What Matters In Stuart Elder Trial

Nevermind the facts like he was intoxicated and speeding.

Sillman said Elder’s blood alcohol level was of .17 — more than twice the legal limit. Lukehart did not say whether Daly’s blood alcohol level was ever determined.

Data pulled from Elder’s Cadillac SUV showed that 1.5 seconds before the vehicles crashed head-on, Elder was driving three times the 25 mph speed limit. It wasn’t until a half-second before the wreck that Elder hit the breaks, slowing from 77 mph to 71 mph, Sillman said.

“We will not be contesting the physical facts of the case. What we are contesting is the perception,” he

Moe Ammar Hates The Rain & The Olympics

Moe says the weather dampened the grabs for tourist dollars. IMO it was the normal high prices and lack of major celebrities at Pebble Beach. Traffic outbound in the evenings at 156 & 1 was heavier than usual.

Early signs are attendance and possibly ticket sales fell at this year’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Rain at the PGA Tour event did more than occasionally stop play — it kept many guests in their hotel rooms or, worse, at home.

“I totally attribute it to the weather,” said Moe Ammar, president of the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce.

Ammar said he heard from locals who decided to watch the tournament at home because of the weather and guessed the start of the Sochi Winter Olympics also kept people indoors.

Stuart Elder Waives Preliminary Hearing

Sharon Daly had been drinking.

Recently, prosecutors and Elder’s attorney revealed that blood tests show Daly had also been drinking prior to the deadly crash, although no details about either driver’s level of intoxication have been made public.

Friends of the two women have expressed frustration about the many months it took to charge Elder after the collision, but his waiving of the preliminary hearing could now speed the process along.

Officials with the district attorney’s office said at least some of the delay was because a “black box” that records braking, speed and other vehicle information was difficult to extract from the women’s car.
