AT 4/22/19 - Board of Supervisors Meeting 

The Board of Supervisors is considering the approval or rejection of the planned development by the Pietro Development Company on Valley View and Isabella.  It is deplorable that they are excavating for large basements and over building the structures.  The Native American representatives are objecting to the the need for the excavations.  If you feel this over the top development is not in keeping with the abiance of Carmel Point, please drop a message to the BOS today.  The meeting is scheduled for tomorrow. 
One resident shares his message below and invites other to send similar messages.

I have no objection to having sensible residences built on the vacant lots, however, there is no need to have basement garages that could possibly disturb ancient burial sites.  And, as you well know, the larger the residence the less likely anyone will ever occupy it.

Dear Mary Adams,
Tuesday’s consideration of the Pietro development on Valley View and Isabella on Carmel Point should be forcefully rejected.  There is no need for three more extremely large residences to be built in this area.  The larger the building the fewer times anyone lives in it.
The large excavation planned for basement garages is deplorable. Listen to the Native American objections and have the building reduced in size and eliminate the excavations.
As a homeowner on Carmel Point, I firmly object to the project as it is proposed.

Carmel River Free Project 

The 45-day public comment period for the Carmel River Floodplain Restoration and Environmental Enhancement (Carmel River FREE) project’s Environmental Impact Report and Environmental Assessment is open through April 22, 2019.

The document provides state environmental review in an Environmental Impact Report (per the California Environmental Quality Act requirements - CEQA) and federal review in an Environmental Assessment (per the National Environmental Policy Act - NEPA).

Big Sur Land Trust and the County of Monterey are co-sponsoring the landmark Carmel River FREE project – one of the most extensive and important multi-benefit flood protection and riparian habitat restoration efforts on the Central Coast. Using a nature-based green infrastructure solution, it will reclaim the southern floodplain to direct water away from developed areas north of the river.

Another example of Big Sur Land Trust's long-term commitment to conservation and land in service of community, Carmel River FREE will restore habitat and help significantly reduce flood risks for homes and businesses in the lower Carmel River watershed. In addition, new trails will connect Palo Corona Regional Park with the Carmel River State Beach and Lagoon. Learn more.
