---And for more---

This is a do not miss - if you care about our Village look and feel like in the years to come.

With recently implemented State (SB8, 9 & 10) and Regional laws (RHNA) (see City Council highlights from Jan 4 here)  and forthcoming updates to our City’s Design Guidelines, Municipal Code, and General Plan - Carmelites are anxious to learn more and contribute their views. The cherished character of our Village is showcased in the homes we live in, the business & civic buildings we patronize, and our precious forest by the sea. Our Director of Community Planning and Building, Brandon Swanson, will provide updates on state and local regulatory initiatives affecting the future character of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Brandon's team will be undertaking long-range planning efforts, each including numerous public meetings seeking community input to ensure our voices are heard and incorporated.

Please join us for this interactive session with Brandon to better understand the latest status of these moving and inter-related topics. As usual, this program is open to the public, masks and proof of vaccination will be required, plus wine will be served at doors open at 6:30 PM.  With the strong interest and Brandon’s offer to participate in a Q&A session after his presentation, we may run to 8:30 PM.
