City Tries To Sneak One By The Trailer Park

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.
