Economic Development Commission

The Commission is charged with improving the City's business and economic environment by providing the framework for developing and maintaining a viable business community within the City of Pacific Grove that serves the needs of both residents and visitors alike, while providing the tax base upon which our City government depends to fund its programs, services, infrastructure, and public facilities.

The Commission consists of ten members, selected for their business knowledge and interest in economic development issues and shall be representatives of the following business districts: Downtown (1), Sunset (1), Foresthill (1) and Central Avenue (1); the following sectors: commercial property owner (1), general business owner (2) and citizen at-large (2). Additionally, the President of the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce shall fill one (1) position.
