The 1984 Del Monte Forest Area Land Use Plan was created to establish POLICIES and ZONING for the development of the Forest. This Plan has not be updated.
The Monterey County Planning Department decided, in 1993, that a new County-Wide General Plan should be written to include all areas of the County, including the Del Monte Forest, Carmel Valley and other areas that have previously been covered by individual Land Use Plans.
During the past six years the County has spent an estimated $6 million on several drafts of a new 20-year General Plan for the unincorporated areas of the County. This plan, known as GPU4, is expected to be finalized late in 2006.
However, a final General Plan will not be produced until decisions are made on two pending issues:
- The General Plan Initiative.
A controlled growth version of a 20-year Plan.
