Located at the base of Belknap Hill and on the banks of the Grand River, the Monroe North Neighborhood creates a unique environment for residents, workers and visitors.  Once a turn of the 20th century industrial hub, historic factories have found new life as high-end loft space, retail establishments, modern offices, and popular recreational and dining venues.  

The Monroe North Business Association (MNBA) serves to highlight this community by:
  • Supporting neighborhood businesses and events
  • Promoting interaction and communication among neighborhood businesses
  • Media outreach 
  • Partnering with local government to enhance safety, transportation, and beautification of  the neighborhood
