The MPHA Board of Commissioners meets monthly in the Board Chambers on MPHA’s first floor. Meetings typically occur on the fourth Wednesday of the month, except to accommodate holidays (generally in November and December, when meetings are moved to the third Wednesday).
MPHA has a visitor parking lot in the rear of the building; the public entrance is in the front. Note that while MPHA board meetings are open to public attendance, there is not a standard public hearing component. Any public hearings will be noticed separately.
The Meeting agenda and materials are available and typically added to our website by the end of the previous week.
