Clint Eastwood unviels new Pebble Beach plans

The high-profile owners of the world famous Pebble Beach golf courses have proposed a county initiative that would allow for a new golf course and lodging facilities on the Monterey Peninsula.

Pebble Beach Company owners Clint Eastwood and former Baseball Commissioner Peter Ueberroth presented the proposed ballot measure at Tuesday's June 6 meeting of the Monterey County Board of Supervisors.

The proposal would rezone approximately 425 acres of the Del Monte Forest from residential development to open space use. Pebble Beach Company plans to build a new golf course, add lodging at Pebble Beach and The Inn at Spanish Bay, add employee housing and relocate the equestrian center.

"We chose to put together a ballot measure we believe reflects a balanced approach in the best interests of the environment, residents of the county, the county's economy and the Pebble Beach Company,'' Eastwood said Tuesday.

Pebble Beach Company needs to get 9,114 registered voter signatures approved and presented to the board of supervisors by Aug. 11 to qualify for the November ballot.

Eastwood, Ueberroth, and golf great Arnold Palmer were part of a group that purchased Pebble Beach and related properties in California for $820 million last year.
