About Us

The Margaret Mitchell Civic Association (MMCA) is an organization committed to ensure that the residents of the Margaret Mitchell Neighborhood have adequate security, social events, quality education, appropriate services, infrastructure, and political representation.

The Margaret Mitchell neighborhood was originally developed during the 1950's as Cherokee Forest.  The neighborhood included the Margaret Mitchell Elementary School located on Margaret Mitchell Drive and thus evolved into the the Margaret Mitchell neighborhood (Peggy Mitchell never lived this "far out").  Morris Brandon Primary School (k-2) now operates at the previous site of the Margaret Mitchell Elementary School.  Our neighborhood includes old and new homes and streets which are located on the west side of I-75 along West Wesley Road, from Moore's Mill Road to Nancy Creek.

The Association represents our neighborhood in many areas and sponsors the following membership benefits:

  • Security service provided by off-duty Atlanta Police Department officers.
  • Updated Website with Neighborhood News, School Scoop, and Upcoming Events.
  • Access to on-line member directory.
  • Annual Meeting with Guest Speaker.
  • Representation at Neighborhood Planning Unit A Meetings (NPU – A)
  • Buckhead Council of Neighborhoods (BCN) Representation, our neighborhood is one of thirty-one members of this influential civic group.
  • Security Alerts and other informative emails are sent to members as appropriate.
