Hear Mount Pleasant working in the Neighborhood
Join us for a celebration!

7PM til late
with live music, dancing and great food!
In March, the city's ABC Board made three landmark decisions, ending restrictions imposed on three local restaurants by a local civic group that impeded their ability to run their businesses and provide amenities their customers wanted to see.
With that fight over, the hard work goes on:
Hear Mount Pleasant will continue our efforts to support:
Residents and businesses working together to build a vibrant and livable neighborhood
A better more proactive approach to managing quality of life issues that arise in dense mixed use areas
New investment and more great new businesses opening their doors in Mount Pleasant
More fun cultural and social events at our local restaurants and in Lamont Park
Come celebrate with us and learn about how you can get involved!
Family Night at Don Juan's

We are celebrating the return of live entertainment to our neighborhood by hosting an evening of live, family-oriented music and puppet shows. Relax and enjoy dinner and bring the kids (or your neighbors kids). From 6-8 p.m.. Co-sponsored by The MTP Business Association and MTP Main Street.
Office of Planning Small Area Plan
In addition to ongoing work on the legal front to appeal the decision by the ABRA Board in the Don Juan's Carryout and Restaurant case, Hear Mount Pleasant has been busy working with the Office of Planning on developing their Small Area Plan. There have been several public meetings as well as several Advisory Group Meetings to which we have sent representatives. We try and make our supporters and the general Mt. Pleasant community aware of the Public Meetings and encourage as much engagement as possible.
Here are links to two documents recently released by the Office of Planning that describe the most recent meetings:
