Settlement Reached in Eco-Resort
Though there may be some other hurdles to clear as it relates to the actual development of the Monterey Bay Shores Eco-Resort... another hurdle, this one legal, was cleared Thursday. A settlement was officially reached before legal proceedings for a foreclosure moved forward. (02-19-15)

Eco-Resort Settlement
It appears lenders have reached an agreement in settlement talks with the developer of the Monterey Bay Shores Eco-Resort. This agreement could stop the pending foreclosure of the property. The judge was to hear the case February 19th. (02.17.15)

Fort Ord Trails Plan
About 1,200 people provided input on the Fort Ord Trails Plan and now the consultants will crunch the numbers. Some of the highlights include walkable streets, access to trails, urban-style streets with transit, and business fronts facing the street. Stay tuned as the consultants work with the input to come up with a plan. (02.12.15)

Landwatch Submits Letter on Evaluation System
LandWatch Monterey County sent a letter to the County with preliminary comments on the proposed Development Evaluation System, which will fulfill GPU 2010 Land Use policy 1.19. The comments outline concerns with inappropriate agricultural exemptions and provisions, as well as specific criteria comments. (02.10.14)

Seaside Wishy Washy on Answers
Our friends at Keep Fort Ord Wild have been at it again. Through the Public Records Act they have requested to gain access to documents related to the Monterey Downs Environmental Impact Report. If the document or portions of the document were sent to the developer, then they are considered public. The City of Seaside said nothing had been released and then changed its position---something had been released---the water section had been sent. The plot thickens. (02.05.15)

Monterey Downs Math Wrong?
An interesting development with the Monterey Downs project was reported today in the Monterey Herald. Apparently the company that completed the economic analysis for this proposed project is actually being sued by two California cities over financial calculation errors. (02.03.15)
