The Morgan Junction Neighborhood Plan
Our neighborhood contains a diversity of residents, interests and opportunities for enhancement which will all contribute to the direction this community takes in the future. During a three year process, MoCA led the efforts which resulted in the Morgan Junction Neighborhood Plan, which will guide our community's growth over the next 20 years.
The Neighborhood Plan sets out the guiding principles and initial recommendations by which we hope to attain this vision of our neighborhood's future. We hope that this plan will be an enduring tool for helping our community cope with changing circumstances and take advantage of opportunities that may arise in the coming decades.
