Munjoy Hill Neighborhood Organization

Welcome to the Munjoy Hill Neighborhood Organization!

Community, Connections, Continuity ~ since 1979

Nearly 40 years strong, the Munjoy Hill Neighborhood Organization is a 501c3 member-driven organization made up of dedicated residents who are passionate about one of Maine's most historic, vibrant and diverse neighborhoods. We're here to advocate for our neighbors to keep Munjoy Hill safe, diverse and fun, all while respecting our neighborhood's past while looking optimistically to its future. Since 1979, we've been building community and providing leadership to the neighborhood by organizing and hosting events, helping to advocate on behalf of the neighborhood's needs and concerns, reaching-out to those less fortunate and serving as a voice both to our community at large and to City Hall.

The Munjoy Hill Neighborhood Organization is also the proud published of the Munjoy Hill Observer, a free community newspaper devoted to informing, educating and entertaining residents of the Hill and throughout Portland.

We love our neighborhood! REALLY love it! We love our neighbors, those who are members and those who aren't. We realize we occupy a historic and beautiful community and strive to be good stewards of the special place we call home; and that's why we encourage you to become a member -- or to volunteer! We believe there is strength in numbers: strength to make a great place even better. Invest in the legacy, and in the future of one of America's most storied, exceptional, walkable neighborhoods. Join us today! 

Happy Veterans Day!

We love our American vets. Please Join the MHNO in saluting the brave women & men who've served to protect us, whether in recent conflict or decades past! And if you know a Vet currently living here on the Hill, give them an especially big thanks today. Thank you veterans!

Fall Cleanup Is Here! City Launches Curbside Leaf Pickup

The City of Portland will begin the annual Curbside Leaf & Yard Waste Pickup on Monday, October 26th and continue through Friday, November 20th. The City requires all leaves and yard waste to be placed in biodegradable yard waste bags which can be purchased at most hardware stores and in many grovery store chains. Place the bags curbside on your typical trash pickup days & let the city crews take care of the rest. It's as easy as that and keeps Munjoy Hill clean, safe and ready for the winter ahead, (and it makes spring cleanup all the easier!).
