Monterey Charter, Sec. 6.6
Monterey City Code, Ch. 2 Art. 13
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 Neighborhood and Community Improvement Program (NCIP) Committee. The NCIP Committee makes numerous City projects a reality, projects that might otherwise be delayed or go unfunded.
What do they deal with?
Established in 1985, NCIP 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 appointed by the City Council. NCIP 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 early-February each year. Review the NCIP 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.
