About the Association



Established in 1938, the Mount Vernon~Belvedere Association (MVBA) takes its neighborhood seriously. We aim to preserve and restore our neighborhood.  In addition, the association works hard to disseminate information to our residents and businesses about issues that affect our neighborhood, and to inform our visitors of the many exciting activities that take place right here!


More specifically, the mission of the MVBA is to:


  1. Bring together the residents, businesses, and institutions of      Mount Vernon.
  2. Act on matters of common concern and be proactive in  improving and promoting our neighborhood.
  3. Provide a collective voice to address issues of concern that impact the community.


We encourage residents and businesses to join us and get involved with one of Baltimore's oldest and grandest neighborhoods. To join us, please click here:  Join Us
