Dear Concerned Resident


Within the coming months the California Coastal Commissioners will be voting on Pebble Beach Co’s. Measure “A” Initiative and Applications for major construction projects in Del Monte Forest.

Do you want 17,000 trees cut down in Del Monte Forest?

Do you think another commercial golf course and clubhouse
in the residential community is appropriate?

Do you want a new commercial Equestrian Center to be built
on dedicated scenic easements in the Sawmill Gulch area ?

Should the Spanish Bay Resort and The Lodge complexes be expanded?

Do you want 1,200 Monterey Pines and 15 Oak trees cut down
for another golf Driving Range along Congress Rd?

If you are concerned about any of these proposed constructions projects
we urge you to act now!

Please take a few minutes and send a letter with your opinions to:

Charles Lester, Deputy District Director
California Coastal Commission
715 Front St. #300, Santa Cruz, CA 95060
