Enhancing the Community One Project at a Time

Sidewalks, curbs and gutters. New traffic signals, parks and community centers. Many such projects are made possible because of the dedicated neighborhood representatives who sit on the NIP Committee. The Neighborhood Improvement Program (NIP) Committee makes numerous City projects a reality, projects that might otherwise be delayed or go unfunded.

What do they deal with?

Established in 1985, NIP directs tourist-generated dollars directly back into the City’s residential neighborhoods. Under a City Charter Amendment, at least 16 percent of the money collected from hotel taxes (Transient Occupancy Tax) must be spent on neighborhood and community improvements.

Each neighborhood's appointed representative sits on the committee. All representatives are nominated by their respective association and appointed by the City Council. NIP members review all potential projects and recommend to the Council which should be funded.

Community members are encouraged to propose projects each year. The deadline to enter submissions is mid-February each year. Review the NIP Project Nomination Form.

Projects can include improvements to parks and recreational facilities; improvements to other public buildings; upgrades or installation of sidewalks, streets, storm drains, sewers, lighting and traffic control devices; or the purchase of open space.
