    Salinas officials will be moving forward with nine traffic projects focused on pedestrian and bicyclist safety - and they're hoping to do so quickly by borrowing against their share of Measure X revenue.

    Wednesday Jan 10 | via Monterey County Herald 

    Salinas >> Nearly nine months after Big Sur was excluded from the county's effort to draft vacation rental rules in the aftermath of last year's winter storms damage, the county Planning Commission decided Wednesday the community will rejoin the endeavor, albeit after determining if the Big Sur land use plan even allows the practice. At the same time, the commission decided against considering a potential moratorium on vacation rentals in the community, but will consider recommending the Board of Supervisors focus more effort and resources on enforcing existing rules countywide to avoid what commissioner Martha Diehl called an “escalation of tempers” over the contentious issue.

    Nov 25, 2017 | via Monterey County Herald 

    Monterey County >> Commercial vacation rentals not regularly occupied by the owner would be subject to considerably more scrutiny than homes where an owner lives a majority of the time under a revised draft of Monterey County short-term rental regulations. All vacation rentals would also be subject to a code enforcement program prohibiting the currently common practice of advertising short-term rentals without first securing county permission to operate.
