Carmel Area State Parks General Plan

This meeting addresses the proposed combination state park to include, generally speaking, Carmel Monastery Beach, Carmel River, and Point Lobos, as well as an eastward expansion. I encourage you to go to the link provided to see what the preferred alternative is and how you can make comments regarding this proposal.

You’re Invited to a Public Open House on the Preferred
Alternative for the Carmel Area State Parks General Plan

Please join us at the next public open house for the Carmel Area State Parks (CASP) General Plan (GP) and Environmental Impact Report (EIR) at the Rancho Canada Golf Club’s Wedgewood Wedding & Banquet Center, 4860 Carmel Valley Road, Carmel from 6:00 – 9:00pm on Wednesday, June 1, 2016.

At the open house, you will learn about the preferred alternative proposed for the Preliminary GP and Draft EIR. Thank you to everyone who participated in the July 2015 public workshop and who also submitted comments on the proposed alternatives. The State Parks planning team reviewed all feedback in depth and further analyzed the factors affecting the identification of a preferred alternative. The planning team will be presenting the preferred alternative that has been crafted with your comments and concerns in mind. The open house will consist of a short presentation and will be followed by an opportunity to learn more about the preferred alternative at unit breakout stations.

A newsletter has been prepared to share more information about the open house and some of the key components of the preferred alternative.

Here is the link to the newsletter, which also contains further links: Newsletter
