About Mockingbird Valley Preservation Alliance, Inc.
The MVPA was incorporated in 2004 as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization with a charter to protect and enhance our neighborhood. Currently we have 16 members on our volunteer Board of Directors, with staggered three-year term limits. The Mockingbird Valley Historic District became listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007. By obtaining this status, our neighborhood is granted limited protection against adverse action by federal agencies, certain tax benefits, and standing with Metro Council regarding zoning changes. The Mockingbird Valley neighborhood plan was adopted by Metro Government on June 8, 2006. A neighborhood plan is not a legally binding document, but a vehicle for current and future planning and discussion. It serves as a resource and reference point with our Metro Government if undesirable development threatens our community.
