Celebrating 37 Years of Community Service

 Tuesday March 26th - Special City Council 4:30 in City Hall

HERE is the Agenda and related reports for this special meeting covering two topics:
a) receiving the Phase 1 report on the Coastal Engineering Study for our Carmel City Beach including Sea Level Rise Vulnerabilites
b) second reading of the FY 2024/2025 Capital Improvement Programs. This includes updates and needs for Parks, Buildings, Vehicles, Roads, Drainage, etc. 

Thursday March 28th - City Council Special Priorities Workshop 

HERE is the Staff report with attachments for this special review of the recent priorities: completed, work-in-progress and new.  This workshop runs from 10AM to 2PM in the Carpenter Hall of Sunset Center - and is a great opportunity to provide public input, suggest changes and hear comments from Council on these 29 listed items. 

14 projects are designated as “Top Priority”
15 projects are “normal” priority level
6  projects are “New” (added in August)
12 priorities are over 50% complete

Not unlike most municipalities, our Village is challenged with a roster of projects that exceed the available Time, Staff or Dollars to complete them all. Prioritization is key. Please pre-read this staff report and attend to provide your thoughts for Council consideration. 

Tuesday April 2nd - Regular City Council 4:30 PM City Hall Council Chambers

This meeting agenda is published 5-7 days prior.  Check on the City Meetings page as the day nears.    ...too much fun! 

Housing Element Work Continues

Ideally the City will receive final certification within 30 days, then comes City Council sign off shorly thereafter.  Visit our CRA Housing webpage for details and background.

Note: assuming receipt of the anticipated State certification, there is significant work ahead on the many Housing Element programs needing ongoing community review and feedback.
