Morningside Neighborhood Association


Morningside Neighborhood Association (MNA) provides a way for you to become involved in the city’s issues, starting with your own neighborhood. The neighborhood is approximately 1,774 acres (2.77 square miles) in area. With shopping, dining, places of worship, a regional employment center, transit service, and parks, Morningside is a mix of urban and residential living.

While MNA is recognized by and receives staff support from the City, it is self-directed. The officers of the Board are elected by the membership. If you live, work, or own property in the Morningside Neighborhood boundaries, you are automatically a member. Join us in making your neighborhood a better place to live.
