A motel that has stood along Traffic Way in Arroyo Grande for years is being torn down.
Community Development Director Teresa McClish says the owners of the property adjacent to the Arroyo Grande Motel on the 300 block of Traffic Way, Arroyo Grande Chevrolet, applied for the permit.
McClish says the building is not listed anywhere as being potentially historic and is not located in the Historic Character Overlay District.
“Asbestos and lead abatement occurred in accordance with appropriate regulations,” McClish said.
The city has not received any applications for new buildings at the site but Arroyo Grande Chevrolet tells KSBY News it plans to expand its car lot onto the property.
