Lighthouse Specific Plan

Lighthouse Area Specific Plan - Adopted by City Council November, 15, 2016

Lighthouse-Specific-Plan-Implementation-Update-CoverThe project area includes the Lighthouse Avenue corridors, and Foam Street which extend from David Avenue at the Pacific Grove City Limits to the Lighthouse Tunnel and connect New Monterey to Downtown Monterey. (Planning Area Map). Under California law, local governments can use Specific Plans as tools to plan for needed revitalization and change, both in existing neighborhoods and new development areas.

Specific Plans provide greater planning and design guidance than can be included in a General Plan, and they allow local governments the ability to address complex land ownership patterns and infrastructure needs. Specific Plans can jump-start new development in depressed areas, and can ensure that the public gets the quality it desires in any new development.

The vision of the Lighthouse Area Specific Plan is to create a livable community and a revitalized destination point on Lighthouse Avenue for residents and visitors. It will provide guidance for the development of transit-oriented, mixed-use development along the Lighthouse Avenue and Foam Street corridors, as directed by the City of Monterey General Plan goals and policies. This project will be accomplished through creative and direct community engagement. SEE 2017 IMPLEMENTATION UPDATE
