MLPA POSITION ON RENEW ATLANTA PLANS FOR MONROE / BOULEVARD–MLPA believes that the issues with traffic and pedestrian safety on Monroe must be addressed in a holistic way that does not simply transfer the problem to another part of the neighborhood. For over a year, the MLPA has been working with the City of Atlanta and RenewAtlanta to communicate this.  We recently met with Renew Atlanta again, and forwarded this letter to their office and our City Council Representatives. See the Committees>Traffic page for more info.

It is imperative that neighbors review and submit comments on their proposal.  Click to review plans.  The comment period has closed but you may contact them through their website.


The MLPA Zoning Committee will hear a variance for 1325 North Highland Ave. NE on Tuesday, February 6 at 7:00 PM.at Morningside Presbyterian Church.  Additional zoning cases to be heard will be listed here as they are received.  Neighbors are welcome to come and express their opinions.   Click to view details.

We owe our success to the invaluable volunteers that contribute their time and talent each year. They support our communications, protect the character of our neighborhood, and safeguard our parks, trees, monuments, and greenspaces. Volunteers also plan events, hear zoning issues, assist our security patrol, and work on traffic issues.

We encourage ALL Morningside/Lenox Park Residents to join the MLPA. There is truly strength in numbers and our members, work together to make our neighborhood strong. All residents are invited to join us for our monthly meetings to learn more about what you can do to help keep Morningside/Lenox Park one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Atlanta.
