||Here is a house on Grand Ave., across the street from the Grand View
Inn, for sale for $995,000. (March 2nd, 2000).
It appears to be located about 200 yards from both the sewer plant
near the bottom of 15th street & the four foot wide pipe at the bottom
of Forest Avenue from which we have observed for years gutter water dumping
into Monterey Bay 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
||Here is a house on Forest Avenue (Still for sale, Feb., 2000 ), that
was once offered at about $1 million dollars. It appears to be less than
100 yards from the four foot gutter water outlet pipe & Lover's
Point, the beach we observe to be most commonly closed because of sewage
spills. The price has dropped from its original offering price.
We remember when this was a beautiful old green Victorian house, which was torn down a little at a time until only the front, which was not rotted, was standing. At that point we believe they incorrectly decided the whole thing was too rotted & tore it down & put in this one. The old house was a majestic piece of true Victorian architecture. In our opinion, there was no need to tear it down & the city has since imposed laws that prevent people from tearing down our historical houses & in our opinion, putting up Victorian kitsch & charging outrageous prices.
