Cannabis “Starts” Operation in Salinas
PHOTO-ESSAY.  I went on a tour of the Commercial Cannabis operation, Pacific Reserve Nursery in Salinas, with Dustin Cline and Eric Hollister, of Keiki’s nursery, today (2/7/2018).  James Fryn, a consultant and partner with Pacific Reserve, lead the way. Pacific Reserve started 2 years ago and so is a mature example of what a G-4 Agricultural permit can acheive in the City of Half Moon Bay. A G-4 permit will allow growers to grow “starts”. Starts are the little plants, like you get at your local nursery, to start your tomatoes or your herbs. “Cuts” are the branches that are cut from the adult “mother” plants, and then transplanted and rooted.

Number 21855: One Coastsider’s Experience In The WWII Japanese Internment Camps

Input is needed as the City of HMB plans to improve parking/access, address erosion and bluff restoration, and make other improvements at the Poplar Beach and bluff top park area. September 17, 5:30 pm at the Poplar Beach parking lot. 

Poplar Beach Gateways Plan is a multi-year project to create a plan for the Poplar Beach and blufftop park area. The purpose of the plan is to improve parking and access, create a phased program for erosion mitigation and bluff restoration, create welcoming “gateway” elements (such as special signage or other features), and initiate work on the easterly re-alignment of the Coastal Trail between Poplar Street and Kelly Avenue. This project area is located on City-owned property along the bluff top between Poplar Street and Kelly Avenue.
