• Pacific Grove City Council tackles Pebble Beach housing plan

    by Fred Hernandez

    The Pacific Grove City Council at its Nov. 20 meeting tackled the issue of Pebble Beach Company’s proposed inclusionary housing in the Del Monte Forest .

    Council members Ken Cuneo and Dan Miller, along with Mayor Bill Kampe, cited the concerns raised by a number of Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach residents about the location of the proposed housing in  “Area D” next to the Del Monte Park neighborhood.

    After hearing from some of the neighbors that would be affected, the Council voted unanimously to send a formal inquiry to the Pebble Beach Company regarding the proposed housing and its potential effects on the neighborhood and the greater community, in particular its size and location.

    The entire Council supported conveying the concerns of these citizens to the Pebble Beach Company, and also agreed to send a copy of the letter to the Monterey County Board of Supervisors.

    The Council’s decision was based, in large part, on a great deal of research by the Del Monte Neighbors United (DMNU) group (documents available through the City’s official website). Much of the input came from meetings that Council members Cuneo and Miller (as the ad hoc committee appointed by the Council at its Oct. 16 meeting) had with a number of Pebble Beach and Pacific Grove citizens.

    The Council noted that, while it is not the decision-making body for the development, it nevertheless is a critical stakeholder.
