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.
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.
