Planning Projects

Work Program

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!
