While less than two years old, MoRA has assumed the role of advocate for the Monroe Road area, an area that had been overlooked for some time. Charlotte’s growth, and the opportunities and challenges that come with this growth, make it essential that we have a seat at the table whether it is for transportation, roads, and the Silver Line, investments in our schools, public safety or proposed development and zoning issues.


Public art is one of the initiatives that MoRA has undertaken, bringing neighbors, students, businesses and churches together to create a public sculpture.  Our sculpture at the corner of Monroe Road and Conference Drive has just been completed and will be an icon for this area and symbol of the great things happening in MoRA.


The MoRA area is home to a variety of businesses, both large and small, established and newly formed.  Our task is helping these businesses to flourish and connect with our community and each other.


MoRA understands the power of communications and events that educate and galvanize community. Our events are varied and done in conjunction with area organizations, businesses, and often our schools.

Pushing forward with art, events, advocacy, and more

MoRA is a passionate group of residents and area stakeholders intent on shaping the rebirth of Monroe Road from Oakhurst to Matthews. While formed only two years ago, MoRA and its grass roots volunteers are changing both the landscape and perceptions of this area, working closely with the neighbors, schools, businesses and other organizations that are part of the Monroe Road area.

From public art and town halls to community workshops on transportation, MoRA is making an impact in this area – in our neighborhoods, our schools, and in our businesses. There is excitement building in the MoRA area, and this excitement is contagious.  We have much to do, and we encourage you to be a part of MoRA and this dramatic transformation.
