Carmel extends wood-burning fires pits for six months

Peninsula Premier Admin

Carmel beachgoers will get an extra six months to use wood-burning fire pits south of 10th Avenue. Councilmembers unanimously approved the extension this week. The city has been experimenting with cleaner alternatives since 2016 in an effort to keep the beach as pristine as possible. It’s hoped that the extension will give staff enough time to draft new regulations switching from wood to propane devices. That will need the California Coastal Commission’s approval.
