On March 29th, the Board of Supervisors are expected to conduct a public hearing on a proposed shopping center at Highway 68 and Corral de Tierra.  The Planning Commission was deadlocked on whether to approve the proposed project, and it will be coming to the Board for a decision.  Dozens of residents attended the Planning Commission hearing.  Some opposed the project because of concerns about pumping water from overdrafted basins and traffic impacts on Highway 68. Others supported the project to provide neighborhood services. 


The Board of Supervisors’ hearing is tentatively scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on March 29th, at the Government Center, 168 West Alisal Street, Salinas. The public is invited to share their thoughts about this proposed project by either submitting written testimonty to the Board c/o or by testifying during public comment at the hearing.







Supervisor Parker is pleased to announce that she has nominated Luther Hert as her appointee to the Monterey County Planning Commission.  “Mr. Hert is a long-term resident of Seaside with experience in government administration and an interest in land use policy as it affects the community.  I am confident that he will thoughtfully consider the implications of the complex decisions that come before the Commission.”  In addition to his qualifications and interest, Mr. Hert’s “professional, calm demeanor will contribute to a respectful exchange of diverse views on land use issues.” 


Mr. Hert’s appointment will be on the appointment list for approval by the Board of Supervisors at the March 1, 2011 regular meeting.


Helen Rucker accepted on February 15th a resolution from the Monterey County Board of Supervisors proclaiming February 2011 as "African American History Month" in Monterey County.
