Vacation rental discussions continue
County planner John Busselle couldn’t give a formal report at the council’s July 21 meeting because the document wasn’t finished yet. There are about 350 vacation rentals — private homes rented out for
days or weeks at a time — in Cambria and about 250 in Cayucos, he said.

Dee Dee Ricci has filed to retain her seat on the San Simeon Community Services District Board of Directors. The retired legal secretary has been on the board since she was a successful write-in candidate in 2006, but also served a prior term from 1993 to 1996.
The other San Simeon district seat that’s up in November is currently held by Terry Lambeth. While he hadn’t yet filed for reelection as of mid-day Tuesday, July 27, he told a reporter for The Cambrian about a week earlier that he intends to run again.
Local candidates who already have signed up to run in other Nov. 2 races include:
Deadlines to file are Aug. 6, except for the Cambria services district or any other race in which an eligible incumbent doesn’t file for reelection. In those cases, the deadline is Aug. 11.

Repairs to stabilize a Park Hill slope and repair Pembrook Drive after a large sink-hole took a 50-foot concave bite out of the roadway Feb. 27 can’t begin until right-of-way agreements are obtained, according to county Public Works.
The work would restore the street that normally loops through central Park Hill, zig-zagging from Shamel Park to Huntington Road.
The slide took with it a 6- inch Cambria Community Services District water main, an 8-inch district sewer main, utility poles and service. Services have been restored, but the roadway remains closed.
Michael Britton, the county’s project manager, said July 19 that “plans are complete and ready for the county to perform the repairs.” “Once we have all of the appropriate permissions, we expect to begin work immediately,” he said. —Kathe Tanner
