Double-double fans,start workingup an appetite.The long-awaited In-N-Out in SanCarlos plans to take its first order June16,said Assistant City Manager BrianMoura.Although the Palo Alto MedicalCenter is also doing work just adjacentto the burger joint,the city is experi-encing much more interest in whenfolks can get their animal style burgers,thick chocolate shakes and hot-from-the-fryer French fries.“I’m getting many more calls aboutIn-N-Out then the future of PAMF. Iguess not as many people are interest-ed in the hospital as food,Moura said.The restaurant is at 445 IndustrialRoad,at the northeast corner of HollyStreet and the former site of a sanitarysewer pump station that has since beendemolished. The 3,654-square-footrestaurant building will have patio din-ing,a drive-through aisle that canaccommodate up to 17 vehicles and a46-space parking lot.Construction broke ground last falland the 65-foot sign — one of thefinal touches — was scheduled to behoisted Friday.The In-N-Out is the fourth for SanMateo County,after other restaurantsin Daly City,Millbrae and RedwoodCity.The city had been marketing the sur-plus land parcel since March 2005before negotiating the $1.6 millionoffer for In-N-Out.Once the restaurant opens,theplanned PAMF project will follow.Cleanup is finishing and plans areanticipated in the next 30 to 60 days,Moura said.PAMF had hoped to break groundon the new clinic at 301 IndustrialRoad by the end of January but theland needed more environmental work first. The project was shelved in March2009 due to economic concerns untilbeing restarted late last year.

 Judge to rule on spatover seals at SoCal beach
SAN DIEGO — A squabble over aSouthern California cove has people tak-ing sides between two unlikely,but equal-ly adorable,causes.On one side are residents trying toreturn the La Jolla beach known asChildren’s Pool to the days when it was akids’swimming hole. On the other sideare the advocates for the plump seals thatgo there to sunbathe with their youngpups.Now a judge is expected to decidewhether the cove where a seawall wasbuilt in the 1930s to calm the Pacificwaters so children could play there needsto be cordoned off year round to protectharbor seals.Friday’s hearing comes a year after itappeared the city had ironed out its longdispute with seal advocates.The city council voted last May for ayear-round rope barrier to keep back thethousands of visitors who come to see thefederally protected seal colony,which cannumber up to 200 at certain times.The city also hired a part-time park ranger to diffuse the situation but to noavail.Those against restricting the publicbeach have set up colorful beach umbrel-las and chairs inside the area that the cityropes off during pupping season fromDecember to May.Opposing activists now man tables on acliff overlooking the cove to gather sup-port. They have at times gotten into heat-ed arguments in front of bewilderedtourists. Each side posts YouTube videos,accusing the other of harassment.Meanwhile,the San Diego PlanningCommission tossed the city council’sdecision,saying it would violate the city’scoastal plan by interfering with beachaccess.Seal advocates sued,saying the paneldid not have the authority to overrule thecouncil. The court will now decide.
Group pursues new‘Emerald City’in Humboldt Co.
EUREKA — A group of HumboldtCounty residents is attempting to form anew city in the heart of California’s famedhub of marijuana cultivation — an effortaimed at ensuring the area receives its fairshare of county services.The project,dubbed Emerald City,is inits earliest stages,with supporters seekingto raise $7,500 to fund a financial feasibil-ity study,which is the first step in the cityincorporation process.The boundaries of the proposed NorthCoast city haven’t yet been determined,but it would incorporate Garberville andRedway,both located about 50 miles southof Eureka with about 1,000 residents each.Jim Lamport,the project’s main propo-nent,said a new city would provide resi-dents of the southern part of the countywith greater political sway. County budgetcuts are threatening local services,includ-ing a sheriff’s substation in Garberville,where Lamport owns a legal documentservice.“There’s a feeling,shared by quite a fewpeople,that we need a stronger,biggerpolitical voice,he told the Santa RosaPress Democrat.
Feed the meter?There’s an app for that
HONOLULU — A new parking systemis being introduced for Honolulu’sChinatown that parking officials said willhelp boost business while cutting down onparking tickets.New high-tech meters could eliminatethe need for coins and reduce the risk of parking tickets by letting drivers add addi-tional time to their meters through creditcards and smartphone apps,said WayneYoshioka,director of the city’s Departmentof Transportation Services.The new system,which officials hope tohave installed at 232 parking spaces by theend of the year,would eliminate the needfor people to walk back to their cars to putcoins into the meter.If the meters in Chinatown work ashoped,another 2,779 on- and off-streetmeters throughout urban Honolulu could beretrofitted to include the new technology byfall 2012,Yoshioka said.While transportation officials moveahead with changes to the meters inChinatown,as well as 72 parking meters inthe underground Frank Fasi MunicipalParking Lot near Honolulu Hale,city parksofficials are planning to increase rates atmore than 278 meters around KapiolaniPark.The city is also planning to add 20 metersin a section of Chinatown where street park-ing is currently free.The additional meters would come afterthe city last year replaced free parkingaround Thomas Square with meters,whichhas made it easier for people to find spaces,according to Yoshioka.

The city of Belmont is looking to get alittle greener by banning the use of plasticbags and polystyrene at local markets andrestaurants.A ban on polystyrene-based disposablefood boxes will decrease litter andcleanup costs and protect marine life,according to a staff report.Belmont’s Green Advisory Committeeis recommending the bans and the CityCouncil will discuss the items for the firsttime tonight.Residents in Belmont currently use 13million plastic bags each year. Banningthe single-use bags will protect marinelife and reduce the city’s cost of cleaningup the mess they leave in creeks andstorm drains,according to the staff report.San Francisco and Palo Alto alreadyhave such bans and San Carlos and DalyCity are also currently considering a banon the items.Plastic bag litter is a greater eyesoreand nuisance than other litter,accordingto the staff report,and anti-littering lawshave been ineffective.Cleaning up the litter comes at taxpay-er expense,somewhere in the area of $130,000 a year. Retailers offer plasticbags because they are much cheaper thanpaper bags. Plastic bags typically cost aretailer about 3 cents each compared to10 cents each for paper bags with the costbeing passed on to customers,accordingto the staff report.An ordinance the council will heartonight proposes to ban single-use plasticbags and require retailers to charge 15cents each for a paper bag which mustinclude 40 percent post-consumer recy-cled content.The council will consider the ban of polystyrene in a separate ordinance.In San Mateo County,the cities of Burlingame,San Bruno,Pacifica,SouthSan Francisco and Millbrae have alreadyadopted ordinances banning polystyrene,or Styrofoam,as it is more commonlycalled.
