Monterey Conference Center Renovation is a GO!
Monterey hotel owners overwhelmingly approved funding
Monterey hotel owners approved a plan to tax themselves to pay for the renovation of the Monterey Conference Center. "This is a decisive moment for the future of Monterey," says Mayor Chuck Della Sala. "The results of the election secured the funding necessary to finance a project that will enhance the revitalization of our downtown and ensure that the citizens of Monterey continue to realize the benefits of a strong and vibrant hospitality industry."
The Monterey Conference Center opened in April 1977. It was built by the City of Monterey to meet the needs of medium size conferences and to advance the recreational and cultural opportunities of the community. The $32 million renovation project will result in a LEED certified conference facility with advanced technology, additional space and improved options for break out space.Media »
By the end of March, city staff will be issuing Requests for Proposals for Project Management and Design and Architectural Services.
When will the Monterey Conference Center undergo the renovation or set dates?
Even though the funding has been successfully voted upon the project still requires an architect firm to be hired and final plans to be drawn and reviewed prior to knowing possible date options for the project to begin and finish. We hope in summer/early fall 2014 we will have construction dates and a timeline for the project.
