Here's a glimpse of good things that happened in Marlborough last week!                 The Coalition and KCPD Metro Patrol hosted a give-away event for neighbors living in The Villages apartment complex along Troost. CIO Office Marquez is handing out Harvestor food boxes and personal hygiene items in the back of the picture ad residents are picking personal hygiene items and registering for free raffles for bikes at the Coalition's table.
Freshman students from Rockhurst University planted, mulched, trimmed and weeded at the Marlborough Village Pocket Park.

Thank you KCPD CIO Officers Marquez and Masterson plus Rockhurst Freshman volunteers!

Everyone can make Marlborough stronger! From sharing the Coalition's social media posts - directing clean-up day traffic – helping with the Youth Arts Festival being a Block Ambassador- check and reporting illegal dump sites each week - to applying to be a board member …. it will take all of us - homeowners, renters, young, old, businesses, educators, partner agencies, and civic leaders to accelerate the positive progress in Marlborough.
Applications for persons interested in serving on the Coalition’s Board of Directors are accepted and reviewed several times throughout the year. The next deadline is October 4, 2021. The board membership interest form can be found at . Participation in other ways can begin at any time.


Email concerns or information about specific neighborhood incidents and concerns, or a KCPD interaction. The Coalition’s Public Safety Task Force will anonymously report information to Metro Patrol as appropriate and/or determine if some type of other city or neighborhood action or referral can resolve an issue .... speeding, racing/donuts, dangerous road conditions, squatters, crime, gunshots, nuisance properties, nuisance parties, etc. Provide as much detail as possible and if you want to be contacted back or remain anonymous.

Disclaimer: Call 911 immediately if you believe you are experiencing or witnessing an emergency that needs an immediate response, including circumstances that could escalate to a crime, shots fired, and threatening situations. Do not rely on communication through this email for immediate urgent needs.
