boardwalk/viewing platform west of the Del
Mar parking area.
City Funds: N/ A

Ocean Avenue to Fourth Avenue that will link with the
recently completed path that runs to the Pebble Beach Gate on San Antonio A venue. A small ADA
boardwalk and viewing platform is proposed at the west end of the Del Mar parking area that will allow public, including those with
disabilities, the opportunity of an improved beach experience.
The Planning Commission issued Design Review and Coastal Development Permits for this project. Upon concurrence by the City Council, staff will prepare construction and bid documents for the project with the intent to begin construction in early fall of this year.

A. Consideration of the first reading of an Ordinance amending the Carmel Municipal Code to ban the distribution of single-use plastic bags from retail establishments within the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea or, in the alternate, to defer action and direct staff to work with the business community.
Description: The proposed ordinance would ban single-use plastic carryout bags for all retail establishments in the City. Alternatively, the Council could also consider directing staff to develop a voluntary compliance program.
City Funds: N/ A
Grant Funds: N/ A
Staff Recommendation: 1) Adopt the first reading of the proposed ordinance, or 2) Defer action and direct staff to work with the business community to develop a voluntary compliance program.
Important Considerations: Communities throughout the state and across the country are recognizing the environmental impacts that single-use carryout bags, especially plastic bags, can have on the environment. The proposed ordinance would assist in protecting the aesthetic and environmental resources of the community.
Decision Record: On 9 May 2012 the Planning Commission recommended that the Council work with the business community to develop a voluntary compliance program to ban plastic bags rather than adopting a formal ordinance.
