Notes on Del Monte Forest Land Use Advisory Committee Meeting (for Monterey County) January, 2002

October 1, 2002 - CR-PB.ORG has received a California Coastal Commission letter dated April 3, 2002 to Thom McCue, Monterey County Senior Planner, stating Measure A needs to be certified before P.B. Co. application is approved.

Especially note several paragraphs in the five pages (highlighted here in red) including...

"While Measure A ... was passed by voters in November 2000, it has not yet been determined if such actions are consistent with the Coastal Act. In order to make such land use/zoning changes to the County's Certified Local Coastal Program, an amendment must first be submitted to the Coastal Commission, including both the proposed Land Use Plan and Coastal Implementation Plan changes.... An LCP amendment application has not yet been submitted to the Coastal Commission; therefore, none of the land use/zoning designation changes related to the proposed development project have yet been approved. And it should be noted that without prior approval of such an amendment, many of the proposed project components may not be approvable under the existing LCP."

(See CALIFORNIA COASTAL COMMISSION web page for details)

June 15, 2001 - Scott Hennessy, Monterey County Planning Director, advised the Concerned Residents of Pebble Beach and Monterey County that.... " The County's current approach is to have Measure A, and related environmental data, presented to the Coastal Commission in time for them to review the initiative and make a determination on ratification prior to the County's final approval on the specific development application......"
