General Plan

The 1994 General Plan is principal policy document for guiding future conservation and development of the City, with the exception of the Local Coastal Program Land Use Plan which was adopted in 1989 and governs the coastal zone.  The General Plan represents an agreement among the citizens of Pacific Grove on basic community values, ideals, and aspirations to govern a shared environment.  Zoning, subdivision, and public facilities ordinances, decisions, and projects must be consistent with the General Plan.

General Plan

The Forest Hill Specific Plan, adopted in 1998, supplements the General Plan and provides additional policy direction for development in this 15.6 acre commercial area.  The area represents about one quarter of the commercial land area available in Pacific Grove and is one of two entrances to the City.
