MVNA is one of the City of Monterey neighborhood associations that represents its residents. Our goal is to preserve the quality and character of our neighborhood areas. Our services include review an comment on selected city programs, proposed ordinances, and building designs. We publish three newsletters each year and provide assistance to members in resolving neighborhood concerns.
Save the date! This year's MVNA annual picnic/BBQ will be held on Saturday, September 27 at Via Paraiso park. Please make plans to attend this fun, informative, and delicious event! More information here....
The Monterey Vista Neighborhood Association recognizes and honors our longtime Secretary/Treasurer Chris Goelitz who passed away after a brief illness on April 19. In addition to her work with MVNA, Chris was an active force in her community and a volunteer for many organizations that supported the education and well-being of our youth. She was a cherished friend and will be missed by all whose lives she touched. Her full obituary can be viewed here.
Neighborhood Improvement Program
Established in 1985, Monterey's Neighborhood Improvement Program (NIP) directs tourist-generated dollars directly back into the City's residential neighborhoods. Under a Charter Amendment, at least 16 percent of the money collected through hotel taxes (Transient Occupancy Tax) must be spent on neighborhood and community improvements.
