September 20, 2021 Update:
City Council approved a new Policies and Procedures Manual and a new NCIP Boundary Map.
August 5, 2021 Update:
Due to the reality of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Neighborhood and Community Development Program (NCIP) has been temporarily suspended. In April 2020, the City Council acted to suspend the current-year NCIP cycle and to reallocate funding from a number of non-essential NCIP and Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) into the City's general fund.

Program funding for Fiscal Year 2021-22 was allocated in the City's approved budget, and NCIP meetings are expected to be scheduled beginning fall 2021, with the expectation of defining a modified NCIP cycle that begins in early 2022.The NCIP Committee has begun discussing procedures for moving forward, assuming that funding will become available. As the schedule for the current-year NCIP program is established, this page will be updated with more specific information.

Thank you for your continued patience and commitment toward the well-being of the community.

What is the NCIP?

Nomination Form POSTED SOON
Nomination Period for 2020-21 is now closed. SEE PROJECTS NOMINATED IN PDF

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.
