The Monterey Regional Airport’s board has decided to seriously look into the possibility of building a new terminal. To that end board members decided to move forward with an environmental impact study that’s expected to take 18-24 months to complete. Board members say the current terminal is beginning to show its age, and may not be able to continue to support the travel needs of the area. The site they are looking at for the new terminal is where the current long-term parking lot is located. The cost of a new terminal would be paid for from the airport’s own resources, not taxpayer money.
Monterey county has started to accept applications to grow or sell medical marijuana. The application process is reportedly lengthy and includes multiple forms. Recreational cannabis businesses will not be able to get permits until state licenses become available….which isn’t expected to be until January of 2018.
2 bodies were found today in Monterey county. The first was found inside a motor home that caught fire today on Pesante Road in Prunedale. The second was found in an old Fed Ex delivery van that had been parked in the Salinas K-Mart store’s parking lot since Friday.
