Carmel Valley Association is the oldest, largest, and arguably most successful community organization in Monterey County. We are entirely volunteer, with no paid employees. Our mission is to defend the beauty, resources and rural character of our beautiful valley. We do that 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 online Calendar,
our weekly email Bulletin, which goes to over 650 residents,
and our quarterly Newsletter, which is mailed to over 7,000 valley addresses.

If you live, work, or own property in Carmel Valley, please join us today!
