STRs in Big Sur Land Use Plan area withdrawn from Planning Commission meeting

This is a long letter, but I feel important enough to post in full. Because of the way they are formatted, I must post as images. It is just over 3 pages.



Highway One Closure Update, 11/27/17

Mud Creek (PM 8.9)
Mud Creek had a major slide on Saturday, May 20, 2017, losing over 5 million cubic yards of material. Caltrans continues with its plan to realign the existing terrain with the projected timeline to safely open to public traffic is late-summer 2018 at an estimated cost of $40 million.

Last week, the contractor continued placing rock revetment, working from the north going south and will place rock revetment across the entire toe. Also, construction continues of the south fill embankment. These same operations will this week.

There is currently no public/local access through the Mud Creek area since this remains an active, emergency construction zone.

Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6)
Paul’s Slide is still active but the 24/7 traffic signal remains in place and temporary guardrail (k-rail) in the centerline. PLEASE BE ADVISED: There will be no access through Paul’s Slide due to paving on Thursday, Nov. 30 from 7:30 am to 4 pm—gates will be closed north and south of Paul’s and roadway will be impassable at this location during this time only; the only access will be from the north.


Missing Hiker at Salmon Creek, 11/27/17-FOUND BY CHP HELICOPTER


My husband, David Laiho, went missing hiking in Big Sur. He started at and planned to finish at the Salmon Creek trailhead. The last time we talked was Wednesday, November 22 at noon. He was supposed to be back Saturday, November 25 in the morning. His car was found still at the trailhead. The Monterey Sheriff’s Department and Search and Rescue are already involved. Is it possible to post to your site to see if anyone saw him during this period? And if so, could they provide information as to when and where? I have attached two pictures of him.

If you see or know the where David is located please contact Monterey County Sheriffs Search and Rescue at (831) 647-7911.
