How can you participate?

One of the ways you can get involved with City government is to sit on a City Council advisory committee or attend public meetings. We invite you to learn more about the workings of your City and how you can become more involved by joining the review process.

Most development projects go before the different committees & commissions. Citizens are invited to attend public hearings, submit comments in writing and/or review development applications and documents. Information on serving on a board, committee or commission.

Plans for developments are available for public review in the Planning Office on the lower level of Colton Hall. Staff reports may be reviewed there as well, or in the Monterey Public Library, or online, prior to a public hearing.

How do you know when a project is up for review?

Commission & committees agendas outline what projects are being considered. Agendas are posted at City Hall and are available online at I-SEARCH Monterey.
