Document Description
The project site encompasses 54.4 acres (2,369,664 square feet) and 52 parcels with Garden Road or Garden Court addresses in Monterey. These include: 1900, 2000, 2100, 2150, 2200, 2300, 2340, 2354, 2400, 2460, 2500, 2560, 2600, and 2700 Garden Road; and, 30, 60, 67, 70, and 80 Garden Court. The project site currently contains multiple commercial, medical, and professional offices; personal improvement service facilities, such as fitness centers; religious institutions; and light manufacturing facilities. The project is a City of Monterey Zoning Ordinance and General Plan amendment to allow multifamily residential uses in certain properties located on the south side of Garden Road, which are currently zoned I-R-1 30-RA-ES. The zoning amendment would allow applicants to convert existing buildings within the project site into multifamily residential units at a conversion rate of one multifamily residential unit per 900 square feet of existing building area. The amendment would also allow new construction at a rate of one multifamily residential unit per 2,000 square feet of parcel area. This zoning amendment would place a cap of 405 residential units on Garden Road, including conversion and new development. The density would be limited to 30 dwelling units per acre.
