Email is now our main form of communication with our neighbors so it's important that we have your email address so that we can keep you up-to-date with neighborhood association news and events.
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 and comment on selected city programs, proposed ordinances, and building designs. We organize public events and discussions, and provide assistance to members in resolving neighborhood concerns. Join today!
Upcoming MVNA Board Meetings
Please feel free to attend one of our neighborhood association board meetings. We usually meet the first Monday of each month (with the exception of July and December, unless needed) in the Solarium Room of the Monterey Library from 6:30-8pm. Please contact us if you would like a discussion item added to our meeting agenda. More information and agendas of past board meetings 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. Learn more about our neighborhood's NIP projects-in-progress and how to originate a project here!
Community Emergency Response Team
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. The next classes are: March 9 through April 20, Thursday nights 6:30 to 9:30 in the Community Room behind the firehouse.
