Munjoy Hill Extends Boundaries
Inner City Turf War Averted

The Munjoy Hill Neighborhood Organization has endorsed a proposal by its board of directors to extend the group’s boundaries. The area added to the MHNO domain is at the base of the hill, between Washington Avenue and the Franklin Arterial, from Congress Street to the waterfront. The area is currently unrepresented by any neighborhood organization.

At its June 12th annual meeting, the group also discussed putting the Franklin Towers apartment complex, which is on the other side of the arterial, under its jurisdiction, but was told by East End City Councilor Kevin Donoghue that the building’s tenants were already active participants in the Bayside Neighborhood Association.

“Maybe we could all go attack Bayside right now!” quipped outgoing MHNO president Markos Miller, but the group decided to avoid starting a boundary dispute with its neighbors.
