MONTEREY COUNTY — Residents who live in unincorporated areas of Monterey County may see county staff and vehicles in their neighborhoods beginning the week of Dec. 12.

Monterey County Housing and Community Development Department is working on a Community Housing Conditions Survey and will be visiting various communities in the unincorporated areas to complete this task.

Residents may see staff in clearly marked County vehicles parked in front of homes, making notes and possibly taking photographs. County staff participating in this housing survey will be observing conditions only.

County personnel will not: enter any home, step onto private property or conduct any enforcement as part of their work.

Residents who see County workers are welcome to inquire as to what they are doing and staff will provide identification and contact information.

This work is taking place in the unincorporated areas of the county, which will include such communities as Carmel Valley Village, Castroville, Chualar, Las Lomas, Pajaro, San Ardo, San Lucas, Bradley, unincorporated neighborhoods adjacent to Salinas, unincorporated Carmel and others.

Staff is documenting the types and physical state of housing in unincorporated areas to get a comprehensive look at housing conditions and needs. This information will assist the County as it updates the Housing Element of the County General Plan.

For more information, visit or email [email protected] with questions, comments or to be added to the public distribution list to receive updates. Anyone with questions about this survey work can also contact Melanie Beretti at 831-755-5285.
