MHA Parking Enforcement

MHA enforces a strict parking policy. All residents with vehicles parked on MHA property must have a parking permit displayed at all times. All cars should pull into a parking space, and all vehicles in violation of the Monroe Housing Authority parking policy are subject to being towed.

Change is in the Air!

Effective March 1, 2018, MHA is smoke and tobacco-free.

Back to School Safety!

Taking the bus for the first time is a big step for your child. Help your kids get a gold star in bus safety by following these tips.

  1. Walk with your kids to the bus stop and wait with them until it arrives.
  2. Tell kids to stand at least three giant steps back from the curb as the bus approaches and board the bus one at a time. 
  3. Teach kids to wait for the bus to come to a complete stop before getting off and never to walk behind the bus.
  4. If your child needs to cross the street after exiting the bus, he or she should take five giant steps in front of the bus, make eye contact with the bus driver and cross when the driver indicates it's safe.
  5. Teach kids to look left, right and left again before crossing the street.
