First Annual Town Hall Meeting at East Meck HS

On September 2, 2015, the Monroe Road Community Association hosted a Town Hall meeting at East Meck High School.  An enthusiastic turnout of 150 confirmed that our community desired a more vibrant, livable area and is ready to come together to create it.  Our presenters described how we got here, our achievements to date, the unique assets available to us, and what’s in store for the future.  Click here for the PowerPoint presentation, and stay tuned for our Second Annual Town Hall Meeting planned for September 2016!

MoRA Awarded NBS Grant

In August 2015 the Monroe Road Community Association was awarded a Neighborhood Matching Grant from the City of Charlotte’s Neighborhood & Business Services. This funding has allowed us engage in branding and brainstorming activities, create a logo, build this website, and begin our outreach to the community. In return for volunteer hours and in-kind contributions, the City awarded MoRA $10,761 in matching funds. This one-year grant was recently successfully completed by MoRA — more than six months early — and another grant is being applied for.  Thanks, NBS, and shoutout to Jennifer Duru, our NBS Southeast Area Team Manager, who shows up on Saturdays and keeps us in the loop.
