Planning Projects

The Planning Office has a City Council-adopted work program that focuses staff work priorities on projects that will achieve the City Council adopted Vision, Goals, and Strategic Initiatives. Planning Staff is currently developing a variety of planning tools to help stimulate economic development within the City's mixed-use neighborhoods and ensure preservation of the City's historic resources citywide.

The five major efforts currently underway include developing specific plans for the Downtown, Lighthouse/Foam, and North Fremont mixed use neighborhoods; developing a long-rang, visionary plan for the City's waterfront; and updating the historic survey in the downtown area, which will also serve as a tool to update the Old Town Monterey National Historic Landmark District.

We encourage you to get involved! Please click on the images below for the project you want to learn more about.
