Coastal Commission Approves Sand City Project
After three days of proceedings, it only took four minutes for the Coastal Commission to approve the Sand City development (10-2), settling a decades old battle. LandWatch raised concerns about this project to the Sand City decision makers, including traffic, coastal erosion, presence of endangered species, the project description, and several others. (04.11.14)

LandWatch Sends Letter on Monterey Bay Shores Project (135K PDF file)
The Coastal Commission is set to review the Monterey Bay Shores project and we have provided comments during each phase of the review process. Our letter to the Commission focuses on cumulative impacts, traffic, viewshed, coastal erosion and climate change. (04.03.14)

Emails Needed for Whispering Oaks/MST Site
The Board of Supervisors agreed in March to consider keeping the Whispering Oaks parcel as habitat lands. However, the decision is not final (yet). The Oversight Board for the County now must review the property-disposition plan before it goes to the state. Please consider getting in touch with the representatives on the Oversight Board to encourage the right decision. (04.07.14)

Delay on Draft EIR for Monterey Downs
There has apparently been a delay in the release of the EIR for the proposed Monterey Downs project. It looks like two key players from the consultant team writing the EIR have left and that has caused them to redo the schedule for the release of the documents. (03-19-14)

FORA Board Denies Plan, Lacks Consistency
In a tie vote (6-6) the FORA Board denied the County General Plan’s Fort Ord Master Plan on March 14, 2014. The County now must make the Plan consistent, send it on for a vote to the Board of Supervisors and then back to the FORA Board. (03-19-14)

Board’s Whispering Oaks Decision, A Good One
The Board of Supervisors considered and unanimously adopted a draft plan that could allow the County to maintain the Whispering Oaks and East Garrison II parcels. Additional decisions must be made but this is a step in the right direction. (03-19-14)

LandWatch Opposes FORA Consistency Finding
The FORA Board votes on the consistency of two planning documents, the County General Plan and the Fort Ord Base Reuse Plan. LandWatch believes the plans are inconsistent and should be revised to reach consistency. (03-11-14)
