Welcome to Marlborough

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.

There are so many great ideas about strengthening neighborhoods shared at this workshop! In 2018, a MCC attendee heard about a “community land trust” to create and keep affordable housing in our neighborhood. The speaker from the workshop was invited to visit with MCC’s Housing Task Force. The spark of an idea turned into a flame! A MCC representative shared the research and progress made to create a Marlborough Community Land Trust at the 2019 Community Development Workshop. In June 2019, the Marlborough Community Land Trust was incorporated and began working toward the renovation of it’s first house! See what innovative ideas you can learn at the 2020 workshop! Save this date!
