Laguna Grande Regional Joint Powers Agency Special Meeting, April 21, 2021

A Laguna Grande Regional Joint Powers Agency (JPA) Special Meeting is scheduled on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. The JPA is made up of Board Members: City of Seaside Mayor Pro Tem Dave Pacheco, Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District Board Member Kevin Raskoff, and City of Monterey Mayor Clyde Roberson.

On the April 21st agenda is a proposal to hire consultant, Bellinger Foster Steinmetz, to create a trail maintenance strategy and conduct an environmental review. The Request for Proposal describes the scope of work to include a comprehensive trail maintenance plan that incorporates public and stakeholder input. The strategy aims to: 1) improve the existing park conditions and (Americans with Disabilities Act) ADA accessibility; 2) establish regular maintenance of shrubs and trees; 3) curtail invasive plant species; 4) assess habitat restoration opportunities; and 5) amplify trail access through upkeep, signage, and identifying major access points, all in order to encourage public safety and additional passive as well as active uses of the Park through a planned maintenance program.  NEWS RELEASE IN PDF

Draft Substantial Amendments to the 2019-20 and 2020-21CDBG Annual Action Plans

Draft Substantial Amendments to the 2019-20 and 2020-21CDBG Annual Action Plans

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Monterey created and implemented the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) with the objective of mitigating potential homelessness and displacement of Monterey residents and workers who are experiencing a decrease in household income, and thus, unable to pay their rent.

The purpose of this amendment is to update the guidelines for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program in order to ensure that the program is operated in compliance with Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and CARES Act regulations. The amendments to the guidelines are as follows:

  • Clirify that the City can provide a maximum of six (6) consecutive months of rental assistance.
  • Include the requirement that if a household receives more than 3 months of assistance, they must undergo a visual lead-based paint assessment as per the Lead Safe Housing Rule (LSHR) requirements. If a determination is made that there may be lead-based paint or asbestos present, testing and remediation will be required.
  • Allow for late fees and other such costs to be covered by the program in addition to rent.
  • Update the income limits annually upon HUD’s release.

Any questions about the Substantial Amendment should be directed to Grant Leonard at (831) 646-3995 or email: housing@monterey.org
