What is the NCIP?

Project Nomination Form - NCIP Nominations for the 2022-23 cycle are closed. Project nominations may be submitted at any time, however, the deadline for projects to be considered during the current program year was Friday, March 4, 2022.

Established in 1985, the Neighborhood and Community Improvement Program (NCIP) 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. Each fiscal year, a committee consisting of Monterey residents considers all submitted projects and recommends which projects should be funded. Several community wide meetings are held and projects are finally voted on by the NCIP committee.

The program begins each year in the fall. The NCIP Project Nomination Form is for residents to propose neighborhood or citywide improvements. The nomination forms are available below or are available by calling the Engineering office at (831) 646-3887. The completed forms can be either emailed or mailed back to the Engineering office. All the qualified proposals are reviewed, sorted, and cost estimated.

A NCIP project is any public improvement (not on private property) that improves streets, storm drains, sewers, sidewalks, walkways, lighting, traffic control devices, landscaping and beautification, parks, recreational facilities and other public building improvements.

If you have any questions please call (831) 646-3887 or email
