Welcome Home Housing Initiative butterfly


At the end of May, the Public Draft of the Welcome Home Affordable Housing Strategy Document was released with a companion Background Data Summary report! The Planning Commission and City Council had a public joint session on Wednesday, May 26, 2021 where the project team shared the highlights from the planning process and walked attendees through the document content. After the presentation, the council and commission discussed the document and heard additional feedback from community members. You can review the agenda, the presentation slides, the video recording, and a summary of comments from the joint session.

If you are interested in providing written feedback about the document, please visit this online feedback form and share your thoughts!

OverviewWelcome Home is a planning and action initiative to create more diverse and affordable housing options that can help secure Pacific Grove’s social, physical and economic well-being now and into the future. 

The one-year process started in Spring 2020 and will continue through Spring 2021. It is funded by an SB2 planning grant from the State of California. The work is being guided by City staff, Council and an appointed Advisory Group of community representatives, including elected and appointed officials, business leaders, housing experts, service providers and residents. The City has hired the firm of Baird + Driskell Community Planning to lead the project.

Specific priorities will be defined through the process, including near-term actions and longer term strategies that can help increase the amount and range of housing choices in our community, with a focus on meeting the housing needs of lower income households and people with special housing needs.
