Marion County Alliance of Neighborhood Associations


McANA serves Neighborhood Organizations throughout Indianapolis and Marion County.  Founded in 1990, we try to faithfully voice the concerns and aspirations of residents in how Indianapolis grows and how it is governed.   Through this website, we hope to communicate with our members and the entire community.  We welcome your comments and suggestions on how to better provide you with the information you need to make your Neighborhood a better place to live.

The City County Council recognized the late Merri Anderson as a community advocate and champion at the City County Council meeting on Monday, July 14th at 7 p.m. 

Many thanks to Councillor Marilyn Pfisterer for sponsoring the resolution to recognize the legacy Merri left the neighborhoods of Marion County.

NEIGHBORHOODS LOSE A CHAMPION - we were greatly saddened to hear this morning of the death of Merri Anderson, one of the greatest champions the neighborhoods of Marion County has ever known. A noble lady who stood strong for neighborhoods for decades, Merri's legacy will live with us forever. Whether you knew Merri from her work with Greater Garden City, Wayne Township, MCANA or many of the countless groups with which she worked, please keep her dedication to her community close to your heart in her memory and her family and friends in her thoughts and prayers.
