The New Monterey Neighborhood Association does several things, some for it's members, many others for all the residents of New Monterey: 1. We participate in the City of Monterey's Neighborhood Improvement Program (NIP). NIP is an annual process for allocating a percentage of the Hotel Occupancy Tax toward projects proposed by the members of each of Monterey's nineteen neighborhoods. Projects such as street and sidewalk repairs, parks improvements, etc. 2. We host speakers in meetings open to everyone, often City department heads but also property developers and activists, who give us direct contact with the people effecting our lives. 3. We host a candidate forum before each City Election. 4. We publish a Newsletter, a Facebook page, and this website.
