A Very Successful
Annual Meeting!

100 members and
guests attended.
Informative and entertaining
presentations by our
Assembly Member Mark Stone,
5th District Supervisor
Mary Adams,
and Monterey Bay Economic
Partnership Housing
Program Manager, Matt Huerta.

All spoke about housing and
highlighted
state and local aspects of this
challenging issue.
We all have seen rising
home prices in Carmel Valley,
in other areas of the
Monterey peninsula,
and in the greater Bay area. 
The availability of affordable,
adequate housing seems
to be a priority
of our governor,
and of course, it is a
very real concern to workers
forced to make long daily
commutes, and to families
wanting to buy
their first home. 

Mary Adams was very
clear about her concern
with the parking needs
in Carmel Valley Village,
and expressed her appreciation
for the community involvement
at recent Carmel Valley Road
and fire safety meetings.
She will definitely
seek another term
as our District 5 Supervisor. 

Each speaker was kind enough to
take general questions
from the membership.
 Fire risk and fire insurance,
the new 45 mph speed limit
on Carmel Valley Road,
and speed limits near
Carmel Valley Village
were discussed,
as were questions
about the progress
of the Carmel Valley
community's CVSOS efforts.

The CVA thanks all the members
who were able to attend,
and especially our guest speakers
who were kind enough to
share their Sunday with us.

Carmel Valley Association is one of the oldest, largest, and most successful community organizations in Monterey County. We are entirely volunteer, with no paid employees.

Our mission: To preserve, protect and defend the natural beauty, resources and rural character of the Carmel Valley. We accomplish it by working with residents, businesses, and government.

CVA was instrumental in the adoption of the Carmel Valley Master Plan and recently settled a lawsuit with Monterey County regarding traffic measurement and capping future development on very favorable terms for our valley.

Our volunteer experts represent Carmel Valley's interest, testifying before governmental bodies concerning development, water, traffic, road signs, and other environmental issues.

We keep valley residents informed about important issues and events with our weekly email Bulletin, which is sent to over 1,100 residents, and our quarterly Newsletter, which is mailed to over 7,000 valley addresses.

Member Richard Cheatham has created a new video about our beautiful Carmel Valley and CVA's role in preserving it.
