Q: SHOULD FARMERS BE ABLE TO SELL THEIR LAND TO DEVELOPERS?
Follow-up: What’s your favorite dish prepared with locally-grown ingredients?
JOE SOLIS | Shopowner | Moss Landing
A: If land is zoned as farmland for many years, the owner can’t have carte blanche. I don’t put anyone at fault except city or county officials if they look the other way and approve a zoning change without good cause. They shouldn’t.
Breakfast of Champions: Strawberry French toast.
BARBARA HANEY | Retired Antique Dealer | Seaside
A: That’s a tough one. For Monterey Peninsula, no. We’re so crowded already. The farmland would be put to better use doing what it’s doing rather than building more homes.
Raw Power: Salad! I love salad!
MAT ALVARADO |Retired | Salinas
A: Building shouldn’t be approved way outside the city limits, but should extend from the cities. The prime produce areas are being sucked up. They shouldn’t be.
Castroville Pride: Artichoke omelet.
