Old Town Neighborhood describes the area bounded by Pacific Street on the east, Madison Street/creek on the south, up hill to Veteran’s Park on the west, and the Presidio on the north.  Affectionately known by locals as “Spaghetti Hill,” the homes reflects a diverse collection of architectural styles, many of which are considered historic.

The neighborhood associations in Monterey were started to address needs, and to that end each neighborhood has some input to the city on issue and on specific needs that may be accomplished through the Neighborhood and Community Improvement Program and dollars collected from the city’s transient occupancy tax. Residents in Old Town also like to have fun, so in addition to issues and programs of importance, we do try to have social events or a program every quarter. Board meetings, generally quarterly, are often held at the MIIS conference room or recently by Zoom. Meetings are announced in bulletins to our members and/or in our newsletters, and are open to all members.
