Government Affairs

Welcome to the Government Affairs page!

Here you will find information and resources to help you navigate the local requirements for individuals practicing real estate in Monterey County. Check back often as these regulations and requirements change upon adoption of new policies by local governments.

Our goal is to protect the REALTORS® of Monterey County from new ordinances, rules and regulations that impact the success of their businesses. We advocate on behalf of our members, current and future homeowners and the greater Monterey County real estate industry in an effort to communicate challenges and successes, preserve property rights and to streamline government processes.

The Government and Community Affairs Director, Scott Dick, informs and advises the Board of Directors and MCAR’s Local Government Relations Committee (LGR) on pertinent land use and zoning policies, state and federal legislation, as well as local municipal/county legislative and political issues. In collaboration with MCAR Committee leadership, the Government and Community Affairs Director implements the legislative and political directives of the Board of Directors.

Government Affairs serves as the primary liaison between MCAR and the California Association of REALTORS®, and assists with member mobilization for state and federal issues of importance to the real estate industry.
