A window to the beautiful Monterey coast, Sand City is a green conscious and artistic community that lives, works and plays by the sea. Residents and tourists alike enjoy biking through town or  spending the day shopping and visiting one of the local eateries, artists’ studios or magnificent coastal amenities. Sand City also features the annual West End Celebration an exciting blend of art and industry in a newly transformed area of the City dubbed 'SoHo West'.

Desalination Facility
The City of Sand City is now accepting development permit applications for new development and redevelopment as the City has an adequate water supply via the new desalination facility. The desalination plant is located at 321 Shasta Avenue in Sand City.

Our Community Vision: Sustainable and Thriving

The City has a clear vision of its future as a progressive, sustainable community that encourages the kind of economic and mixed-use development that enables businesses to grow, while also maintaining a friendly, walkable community.

The long-term goal is to build on the City’s existing qualities to create a vibrant community where people can live, work and play. Using streetscape designs, planting trees and installing comfort-oriented street furniture (benches, ornamental street lights and the undergrounding of utility lines), we hope to make downtown more pedestrian-friendly, attractive and accessible to visitors from all walks of life.
