Martin Acres is a strong neighborhood community in South Boulder
Learn more about who we are and what we do below
Who We Are
Founded in 1977, the Martin Acres Neighborhood Association (MANA) represents the residents of Martin Acres, a neighborhood of about 1,350 single-family homes and four apartment buildings bounded by US Highway 36, Table Mesa Dr., Broadway (CO 93) in south Boulder, Colorado.
Since its founding, by charter held in its bylaws, MANA has been dedicated to protecting and improving the quality of life for all residents in the neighborhood.
Martin Acres is home to Boulder Valley School District’s Creekside Elementary School, the High Mar U.S. Post Office, the Bridge House Ready-to-Work program (transitional housing and vocational training for formerly homeless individuals) and Martin Park, adjacent to the Bear Creek bike path.
What We Do
MANA works to improve the quality of life in the neighborhood by:
- producing and distributing the VOICE newsletter
- organizing social events
- organizing and funding beautification efforts
MANA works to protect the quality of life in the neighborhood by:
- monitoring actions by city, state and federal governments that affect the neighborhood
- representing Martin Acres to Boulder City Council and Boulder Valley Board of Education
- maintaining contact with city and county service providers
- participating in public forums and meetings
- organizing issues-related and candidate forums
MANA promotes the quality of the neighborhood; promotes actions by city, state and federal governments that enhance neighborhood quality; and works with other Boulder neighborhood associations to promote these goals.
Officers and Committee Chairs
Since 1977, guided by its bylaws, MANA is managed by a steering committee elected at an annual meeting on the first Monday in March for a one-year term of office. The outgoing committee presents a slate of volunteers recruited from the neighborhood population, and nominations (including self-nominations) are taken from the floor.
You’re Invited! The Steering Committee holds open meetings at 7:00 pm on the first Monday of the month.
