Spare the Air, Wildfire Air Quality Advisory: Beach fires banned until further notice

The air quality in Monterey County is being adversely impacted by the wildfires in Northern California.  As a result, the Air District has issued an air quality advisory requesting that wood burning be suspended while we experience significant levels of smoke from the wildfires up north (http://mbard.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/WildfireSmokeAdvisory_10.11.2017.pdf).  To help in this effort, the City of Monterey has banned beach fires on City and State-managed beachs until further notice and the advisory is lifted. Thank you for your cooperation.

Beach Fires Prohibited

The Measure P ADA Ramp and Street Reconstruction Phase 4 work at the Pacific Street exit from Lighthouse Avenue will be delayed and reopen later than the original October 6 estimation.
