The vision of the Lighthouse Area Specific Plan is to create a livable community and a revitalized destination point on Lighthouse Avenue and Foam Street for residents and visitors. It will provide guidance for the development of transit-oriented, mixed use development along the Lighthouse Avenue and Foam Street corridors, as directed by the City of Monterey General Plan goals and policies.
The Specific Plan for Lighthouse Avenue was adopted in September 2016 and amended in November 2016. The project area includes Lighthouse Avenue and Foam Street which extend from David Avenue at the Pacific Grove City Limits to the Lighthouse Tunnel. Pursuant to California law, local governments can use Specific Plans as tools to plan for needed revitalization and change, both in existing neighborhoods and new development areas. Specific Plans provide greater planning and design guidance than can be included in a General Plan, and they allow local governments the ability to address complex land ownership patterns and infrastructure needs. Specific Plans can jump- start new development in depressed areas, and can ensure that the public gets the quality it desires in any new development.

The Specific Plan identifies opportunities for private property owners to redevelop sites.
Site 1: 230 Lighthouse - currently under construction.
Site 2: APNs: 001-072-015 & 018 (724-740 Lighthouse Ave).
Total area of parcels = 22,130+ SF. All under one family ownership. Parcels include retain, restaurant, and miscellaneous commercial uses.
Site 3: APN: 001-061-009 (686 Lighthouse Avenue). Total area of parcel = 71,,800+ SF. Parcel includes CVS Pharmacy and a large parking lot. Opportunity may exist to combine this parcel with the five other parcels on the block to share water resources. However, this effort would necessitate cooperation between multiple property owners. Several of the commercial buildings on the other parcels may have potentially historic facades that may require preservation.
