A vibrant neighborhood in southeast Kansas City.
For the last ten years, the Marlborough Community Coalition, a 501(c)(3), has worked hard to bring positive change to the neighborhood. The current focus on linking partners and stimulating new grassroots leadership will continue to strengthen the momentum of the area for years to come. From arts to urban gardening, the community hosts a number of exciting opportunities to get active and involved. Explore this site, and find ways to get engaged! At the end of the day, it takes all of us…residents, businesses, educators, and civic leaders to work together to achieve a common vision.
