What is the NCIP?

- Nomination Period for 2020-21 is now open. Nominations must arrive no later than February 7, 2020.

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 huerta@monterey.org.

What happens to projects that are submitted?

All nomination forms are sorted by type of improvement and neighborhood. Valid project submissions are cost estimated and voted on by the NCIP Committee, composed of Monterey residents. So look around, see what needs improving and submit a project during the project cycle, see the project submittal information above. Voting on proposed projects usually occurs in April. NCIP Committee recommendations are then forwarded to the City Council for approval. Community members are encouraged to propose projects each fall. The deadline to enter submissions is mid-February each year. A link to the NCIP Project Nomination Form is now available.

Who coordinates the Program?

The Engineering office defines the scope of and implements NCIP construction projects, giving feedback on unusual projects and designing projects once they are approved by the City Council.
