A year after closing, the story poles are up.
Bare it Bennett would rather see substainable housing.
Griggs said a five-year sales slump and his desire to retire are the reasons he wants to sell the land. He hasn’t said when he’ll close shop, but said it could be in 2009.
Lisa Bennett said she wanted to support the general plan amendment but couldn’t because she would rather see affordable housing on the land. “I do have some problems with the single-family residential model which is a pattern in our community, but hasn’t been a successful model in California for affordable housing or transportation,” Bennett said.
. . owners of Griggs Nursery in Pacific Grove plan to shut the business and sell the land for eight homes. The city’s planning commission has recommended amending the city’s general plan so the houses can be built.
Allowing for homes to built on the property at 1021 David Ave. would not only benefit the Griggs, who could sell the water-ready lots for $465,000 to $495,000 each, but would be an advantage to the city since it would receive property tax revenue, Silkwood said. And the neighbors would benefit as well, she maintained.
