Sunset Beach will push forward with its plan to become a city after an encouraging report from a financial consultant, the president of the seaside neighborhood's de facto governing board said.
Greg Griffin, the president of the Sunset Beach Community Assn., said he has seen a preliminary version of the report by Willdan Financial Services, a company the association hired in November to determine the feasibility of Sunset Beach incorporating. The results were promising, Griffin said.
"The whole report is that Sunset has the financial horsepower to become its own city," he said.
The association plans to host a meeting at the community lot at 12th Street and North Pacific Avenue at 7 p.m. Thursday, with food served a half hour earlier. According to Griffin, Willdan will present three scenarios for incorporating: one in which the entire neighborhood incorporates, one in which the beach remains under county control, and one in which the beach and "green belt" — a lengthy strip of lawn between North and South Pacific avenues — remain with the county.
