Downtown Vitalization


Marina Downtown is characterized by its family-friendly weekend farmers' market, ethnic eateries from around the world, and great value hotel accommodations.  It is vibrant with students, residents and visitors throughout the year. The central location make it accessible to Marina State Beach, Fort Ord National Monument and Monterey Bay Coastal Recreational Trail.

The City is embarking on the Downtown Vitalization project to create a Downtown District to enhance the historical downtown corridor.  The City’s focus will begin within the Reservation Road corridor, between the intersections of Del Monte Boulevard and De Forest Avenue including the Marina Main Post Office and future Monterey Salinas Transit (MST) countywide hub and mixed use development.

The boundary of the Downtown Vitalization District is defined by the parcels along the North side of Reservation Road, the West side of Del Monte Boulevard, and the South side of Reindollar Avenue, west of Sunset Avenue. The entire district is approximately 225 acres in area. Proposed uses for this Vitalization District include mixed-use commercial/residential, residential, recreational, and civic uses.
