FORA seeks to cut down trees at Parker FlatsLegality of removing trees, building houses on the land appears questionable
By VIRGINIA HENNESSEY Monterey Herald (CA) August 29, 2012The Fort Ord Reuse Authority is planning to cut down hundreds of trees to clear munitions in preparation for housing on land that may be restricted from residential use by two official agreements.
The project will clear all vegetation from three wooded areas, totaling 12 acres, north of Parker Flats Road. Included is a half- mile long, 50-foot wide strip of land between Parker Flats Cutoff and 8th Avenue.
The land is commonly called the "endowment property," because the proceeds of its purchase will provide operating costs for the planned veterans cemetery immediately to its south. It is also part of the proposed Monterey Downs development, which would include 1,500 residences, 400 hotel rooms, retail areas, an Olympic-sized aquatic and tennis center and a horse-racing track.
