Pacific Grove Peace Officers’ Association (PGPOA) is pleased to announce that our membership has endorsed Measure X, a ballot measure in the April 19th election. This measure would change the zoning of the American Tin Cannery Outlet Center to allow a hotel. A hotel would generate a transient occupancy tax (TOT), which goes directly to the City of Pacific Grove. Other forms of taxes, such as sales taxes, gas taxes and property taxes are split between different government entities. ALL revenue generated from the TOT goes directly to the city.
We feel that the quality of this project, along with its proximity to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, provides the City of Pacific Grove a wonderful opportunity to benefit financially from visitors who already visit the Aquarium but often stay elsewhere. It would also provide a coveted facility for local groups that must leave Pacific Grove for conferences, meetings, and special events. The proposed Project Bella would be a source of pride for our town and would help fund necessary services for our town.
The PGPOA urges all Pacific Grove citizens to vote YES on Measure X.
