Administrative Enforcement Hearing Officer Panel

Chapter 1.19 of the Pacific Grove Municipal Code sets forth a variety of enforcement options to effectively and timely address Municipal Code and ordinance enforcement matters in order to preserve and protect the quality of life in the neighborhoods and the overall community of Pacific Grove. The Chapter allows traditional criminal prosecution, civil action and nuisance abatement as enforcement, as well as establishing several administrative enforcement procedures.

The Administrative Enforcement Hearing Officer Panel for the City of Pacific Grove is established under Chapter 3.30 to address alternative enforcement processes in the City. The Panel consists of seven residents of the City, appointed by the Mayor and approved by the Council.

Administrative Hearings are civil hearings.  The hearing may result in the impositions of fines, costs, liens, or orders to clean, repair or demolish property.  The Administrative Hearing Rules and Procedures can be found here (Hearing Rules and Procedures). 


Agendas are typically posted 72 hours prior to each meeting. Minutes are posted after they are approved. Agendas and minutes will be accessible on the website for approximately 24 months.
