In an Aug. 25 civil complaint, Blue Wave Enterprises
and Jon Kramer contend that when they tried to submit
an application for the three-unit hotel at 176 Central Ave.,
city hall refused “to accept and process” the document.
The lawsuit argues the hotel should be allowed per Pacific
Grove’s local coastal plan.
Kramer first proposed a mixed-use development, in
cluding two residential units and a retail space. City staff
told him that he could not pursue the project because of
zoning issues. Kramer issued revised plans without the
residential units and replaced them with hotel rooms. The
city turned that request down, too, also citing zoning.
“City staff instead suggested that petitioners pursue
a subsequent ballot initiative to allow a hotel use on the
property, or to bring forward a new project consistent”
