To Whom It Concerns,
 
My name is Garrett Hambaro. I am a graduate in 2006 of Monterey High School. I dearly remember the Carmel Stone Bleachers and am a descendant of Men who built them during The Great Depression. They were built as a Works Progress Adminstration(WPA) program. I object to the mitigated negative declaration. They are a historic resource and a valuable addition to our traditions in Monterey. I must insist on a comprehensive historic reconnaissance survey by a qualified historian and that an Environmental Impact report be done. This must be done prior to any proposed alterations or repairs are approved.
 
Thank You,
Garrett Hambaro
