Welcome, Neighbors!

WE ARE 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.


The Marlborough Community Coalition is an association of residents, businesses, and partners for our diverse and historic neighborhood that serves to promote the neighborhood as a healthy, sustainable, and vibrant community by engaging residents, institutions, and businesses | finding innovative solutions to entrenched urban problems and misconceptions | utilizing housing, green space, and the arts as core revitalization approaches, and | advocating for equitable treatment and resources. Together, we are Marlborough.


Every day, we’re working together to transform our community. Check out what’s happening..
