NPOV[edit]

This is a lovely article about one of my favorite places to visit, but we really should neutralize some of the references to, for instance, "tasteful bed and breakfasts" and cute "without being too cute." -- Muffuletta 03:20, 27 December 2005 (UTC)

agree with muffuletta, needs to be copy edited at the leastAnlace 06:27, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

Suggest change "back way" language[edit]

I suggest that in the paragraph that mentions that many people take the "back way" into PG through Monterey, the wording should be modified to say "surface street route of Del Monte Ave to Lighthouse Ave" or something along those lines. "Back way" is not factual or descriptive to non-locals. Krimsley 05:03, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Festivals?[edit]

Is it appropriate to include information about festivals (Feast of Lanterns, Good Ol' Days, Butterfly Parade, PG Band Festival) in this article? --Krimsley 05:21, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Of course. All of that would be very interesting. Currently, the Butterfly Parade is mentioned, but only in a sentence. A picture would be nice. PGScooter (talk) 09:28, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Question about Scope[edit]

Do/should these city pages include information other than raw numbers, such as civic groups, activities, events etc? For instance, there's no mention of the historical significance of PG, the fact that large portions of it are on land reserved by Asilomar State Beach, that flocks (is that the right word?) of butterflys overwinter at George Washington Park on Sinex Ave?

Yes, this information would be great add- please do! PGScooter (talk) 09:27, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Susan Goldbeck's Daughter Mary[edit]

Susan Goldbeck was a Pacific Grove city councilperson when her adopted daughter Mary embarked on a fairly major crime spree in PG neighborhoods. It may be of interest to find out if there was ever any other politician whose child (adopted or biological) subjected the politician's constituents and township(s) to like depredations while in office or running for office (Susan ran for mayor, too). Mary might be a record holder here, and, if so, should be included in the main article as I imagine that could influence an election one way or another.--76.212.152.34 (talk) 16:08, 1 December 2012 (UTC)
