The Inn at the Pier is expected to fill a dirt lot located at 601 Cypress Street, just steps away from Pismo Beach’s pier and boardwalk. The 74,000 square-foot will include a 104-unit hotel, a rooftop pool, nearly 1,800 square feet of retail space and 2,150 square feet of meeting and dining space.

Following planning commission approval of the project in July, two Pismo Beach residents appealed the project. The appellants said Tuesday that the project is a “canyonization of public views of the beach boardwalk area and pier.”

But, the council denied the appeal and unanimously voted to approve the development.

Opponents of the project could still appeal the plans to the California Coastal Commission.

The critics may have a point but it is exaggerated. It was inevitable that something would be done with that lot someday. I would have preferred seeing part of it go towards a public parking garage but since I am not footing the bill, my preferences don’t matter.

water water water.

Bed taxes…bed taxes….bed taxes.

They trump locals water needs or concerns….follow the money every time.
