C5: Where is MoRA?
FS: The MoRA area is out Monroe Road, just past Sharon Amity. It’s south of Independence and between Sharon Amity and Sardis Road North.
C5: What does MoRA stand for?
FS: MoRA stands for Monroe Road Advocates. MoRA is a local business outreach group focused on bringing people, businesses, retail and a great vibe to the area.
FS: There are a lot of businesses in the corridor! Some of my faves are Inner Peaks (a rock climbing gym), Queen City Yoga, Escape Hour and the Deep Sea Seafood Market.
C5: You know the readers really want to know where they can find the cool neighborhoods.
FS: That’s tough, but I’ll start with five.
This is the first neighborhood after you cross Rama Road going out of town on your right. These are mostly brick ranch houses built in the early 1970s. The price points are fantastic from the low $200’s to fully renovated beauties over $250,000. This neighborhood is walking distance to the new Meridian Place shopping center with a Hawthorne’s Pizza opening soon. Yum!
Shhhhh! This is another secret neighborhood. This is a pocket of only a few streets just past Burtonwood. Houses here range from the $150s to $200s with most under $170,000. You can find split levels, two story and ranch houses built in the 1970s. Neighbors love being so close to town. Move fast, they don’t stay on the market long.
