Monterey Hills is located within the City and County of Los Angeles. It is bordered by South Pasadena to the north, El Sereno to the South, and Highland Park to the West. It is located east of the 110 freeway and is 15 minutes from Downtown Los Angeles and Old Town Pasadena.

"The Hill", as it is affectionately called by its residents, is a serene hilltop community consisting of 21 condominium and town home complexes, each governed by their respective homeowners associations (HOA). Other than a perfectly sized park, Monterey Hills is completely residential. Although well patrolled by LAPD's Hollenbeck Division, we augment our security with POST Alarm System patrol services. The combination of Community Watch personnel, POST and LAPD, we are a vigilant, safe and family friendly community.

An organization, called "The Federation", was formed as an alliance between these HOA's so that they may collaborate  to maintain and improve the common interest of its residents. The Federation organized the annual Monterey Hills Jazz Festival, the Movie Nights in the Park and other family friendly events for all the residents of Monterey Hills.

In 2015, the Federation was dissolved in favor of the Local Issues Committee addressing the needs and concerns of the community. The Monterey Hills Local Issues Committee is part of the Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council (ASNC) which is an authorized organization for the City of Los Angeles. The Local Issues Committee works similar to the Federation in that the community meets to discuss issues and decides what is in the best interest of the community. Then the community representatives for the ASNC submits those ideas before the entire ASNC Board to take action on those decisions.
