• ‘Tis Not the Season

    Winter holiday lights certainly are bright and help provide a festive air, but the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea is gently reminding businesses that the time has come to take them down and put them in storage to be unpacked next winter.

    According to Carmel’s Municipal Code such lights may be displayed from the third Wednesday of November through the second Wednesday of January.

    The law applies to trees, public rights-of-way and private properties in the CC and SC zones and to commercial operations in the residential district. The residential district has similar requirements.

    Rob Mullane, Community Planning and Building Director for Carmel-by-the-Sea, said, “Carmel-by-the-Sea strongly values its unique community character, which includes a muted lighting environment. While many of Carmel’s merchants and residents have taken down their holiday lights, the remainder need to do so as well.”
