Project Details
Many City Council members, neighbors, and concerned Carmel citizens have been hoping that a community benefit use for this property will one day come. This is why the RFP for Curatorship option was chosen by the City Council of Carmel-by-the-Sea in 2018.

However, no proposal has yet to meet the financial needs of the city and the need for quiet streets that the immediate community needs. Finally, here before you is an approach that solves all the issues plaguing this property all these years.

A coalition of local citizens have come to rally behind a brilliant solution. But we need your help!

An ideal local family has presented a wonderful formula for this city-owned, unoccupied facility that satisfies the concerns of all stakeholders. They have imagined a use which meets all the criteria, a home occupation with a public benefit:

A historic opportunity to preserve a landmark estate in the center of town.

The return of the Carmel Art Institute as an entirely digital campus.

A committed Curator candidate, who has rallied his community behind his bold, no-footprint digital vision.

Endless benefits to our residents, local non-profits, and our town's artistic legacy.

We seek patrons who wants to bring healing to the Flanders Mansion issue and donate to The Flanders Mansion Revival Fund, a "Special Purpose Fund" managed by the Community Foundation of Monterey County.

Are you out there?
