Important News & Updates

MLPA CONCERTS IN THE PARK FRIDAY, 4/21, 6-8:30 PM–Grab the kids, a blanket, and your neighbors for a free concert in Sidney Marcus Park.  Check back here or Facebook’s Morningside Lenox Park Association page for updates in case of weather.

I-85 COLLAPSE NEWS–The bridge collapse has snarled traffic around our neighborhood.  Be a good neighbor by setting a good example when driving intown:  observe speed limits, stop for pedestrians in crosswalks, respect cyclers, and watch out for kids.

Go to the Georgia DOT for maps of the road closures and suggestions on detours.  For now, the Piedmont Road underpass has reopened with 1 lane going north and 3 lanes going south.  The mayor has suspended several road projects to keep roads open until the overpass is repaired.  Watch for news on the closure of Piedmont as placing the supports for the new overpass will necessitate its shutdown at some point.

MLPA’s Traffic committee is working with Wan’s office and APD to ensure the safety of our neighbors.  We have a Pace Car campaign to publicize our efforts to make sure our traffic laws are observed.  You can join the program at the Annual Meeting April 24th.  They have also begun fundraising to conduct a traffic study/create a master plan.  Donate here.

MLPA ANNUAL MEETING NOTIFICATION–The MLPA Annual Meeting to elect a new board has been moved to Monday, April 24 at 7:00 PM at Morningside Presbyterian Church, 1411 N. Morningside so all our neighbors can attend.  All are welcome, but only members may vote.  Doors will open at 6:30 so those wishing to update their membership may do so.  At the meeting we will vote on amended by-laws and a slate of new officers.

Don’t miss the Annual meeting.  Girl Scout Troop #21340 will provide childcare so that parents may attend.

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.

Variances

MLPA Zoning will meet Tuesday, May 2nd at 7:00 PM at Morningside Presbyterian Church to consider several variances.  Neighbors are welcome to come and express their opinions.   Check back here for a listing of cases to be considered.  More Information >

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.

New MLPA Memberships Available

To encourage more households to join our association, the MLPA has approved a new basic membership level for those wanting to participate in meetings and committees, but not opting for inclusion in our Security Patrol. Please review the benefits of our memberships and join today!
