Kathy Hill, chair of MoRA, had a chance to sit down with journalist Maureen Wurtz of Queen City News on Monday. The segment notes how the Monroe Road corridor was overlooked for years, as the rest of the city experienced growth and improvements.

When Monroe Road Advocates organized seven years ago, we knew two things for certain: our corridor’s growth was on the horizon, and making sure that residents’ and businesses’ voices are heard is key!
