Important News & Updates

DINE/SHOP FOR CHESHIRE BRIDGE–Hooray!  The repairs to I-85 are finally complete so we can get back to normal.  Come out Wednesday, May 17- Saturday, May 20 to help our neighborhood businesses along Cheshire Bridge recover.  While the increased traffic was an annoyance for us, it was an economic hardship for them.  Let’s help them recoup their losses by joining your friends and neighbors shopping on this important commercial corridor. The event kicks off on Wednesday, May 17, 5:30-8:30 PM–Walk on over to shop and/or dine at one of these establishments.

I-85 COLLAPSE NEWS–Traffic seems to be returning to normal now that I-85 has reopened.  Thanks to the MLPA Traffic Committee for their work to ensure the safety of our neighbors.  The Pace Car campaign to publicize our efforts to make sure our traffic laws are observed will continue.  You can join the program by contacting traffic@mlpa.org.  The traffic committee has begun fundraising to conduct a traffic study/create a master plan.  Donate here.

KIDS’ SUMMER OPPORTUNITY–The Fulton County DA is offering a free Junior District Attorney program for kids entering 6th, 7th, and 8th grades during July. Application deadline is June 1.

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.


MLPA Zoning will meet Tuesday, June 6th at 7:00 PM at Morningside Presbyterian Church to consider these variances: V-17-122, 1106 Amsterdam Avenue, V-17-123, 1738 Pine Ridge.  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.
