    City Prevails in Point Pinos Challenge

    The City of Pacific Grove prevailed in Court when, on December 6, 2012, Judge Lydia M. Villarreal of the Superior Court denied the Petition for Writ of Mandate and Complaint for Declaratory Relief filed by Petitioners Friends of Point Pinos, Jim Willoughby and Lee Willoughby against the City of Pacific Grove.

    Petitioners’ lawsuit stemmed from the City’s amendment of a Use Permit to expand the hours of operation at the Clubhouse/restaurant at the City’s Municipal Golf Links.

    The court rejected Petitioners’ claim that the Use Permit was not in compliance with the City’s General Plan and Zoning Code. Petitioners’ challenge to the City’s environmental studies related to the amendment was also rejected.

    City Attorney David C. Laredo said, “The City is pleased the Court has recognized and validated the careful work and significant oversight made by the City Council and its staff. Great care has been taken to avoid any and all impact to the neighbors, the community at large and of course to the natural ecosystem.”
