County of Monterey Offers Free, Pre-Approved Standard Plans for Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)
In an effort to streamline the Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) building process, The County of Monterey is excited to offer three (3) pre-designed ADU plans available to homeowners.
ADUs are a smaller, independent residential dwelling unit located on the same lot as a standalone single family home.
Our pre-designed ADU Standard Plans are free of charge and have been reviewed and stamped ‘Approved’ by the County of Monterey Building Division in compliance with the California Building Code. This means that these plans have been determined to meet the California Building Code requirements and use of the plans will not require structural engineering. It also means that use of these plans will save time and money when applying for a building permit because they will have already been reviewed and approved.
Please note these plans are:
- Only for new construction
- Not for converting garages
- Plans offer some modifications
Before using these plans, please contact Housing & Community Development. A building permit is still required before construction and additional limitations may apply.
For more details, please visit our website https://www.co.monterey.ca.us/government/departments-a- h/housing-community-development/permit-center/accessory-dwelling-unit-plans-and-info or call 831- 755-5025.
ADUs present affordable additional housing for parents, grandparents, friends,
young people, or even long term rental income.

County of Monterey Temporary Road Closure of Portion of Coast Road
Repairs expected to be completed by end of 2023
The County of Monterey Public Works, Facilities and Parks is temporarily closing a portion of Coast Road due to dangerous conditions and is working on repair plans for the road. The impacted area is from MP 3.26 to MP 3.8. Type III barricades and Road Closed signs are now in place.
The road can still be used by bicyclists, hikers, and equestrian trail riders, including through the closure. However, the impacted area is closed to cars and trucks. Motorists who reach the closure will need to turn around to get access back to State Route 1.
This closure is anticipated to last through the coming weeks. Completed repairs should be done by the end of the year.
Figure 1. Location Map.
Coast Road (AKA: Old Coast Road) experienced a road slip out approximately 3.3 miles from its northern intersection with State Route 1.
The soils in the area of the slip out are not stable and adding to the danger, there is a redwood tree along the cutslope (hill) that is encroaching in the travel lane. From the edge of the tree to the edge of the erosion, there is approx. 8-ft, 10-inches of road width remaining. The downhill side is an approximately 12-ft drop into a creek. This is very narrow for any vehicle, car or truck. This reduced width could potentially be a concern for a motorist unfamiliar with the area.
Emergency responders are being notified of the closure and road dangers so that they can make arrangements. Once repair work is completed, this temporary road closure will be removed and the road reopened for the motoring public.

Please see the attached agenda packet for the Big Sur Byway Organization meeting next Wednesday, September 6, 2023, at 10 a.m.
Please note that this will be a hybrid meeting; members are required to attend in person. Members of the public are welcome to attend either in person or remotely.
