About Magnolia Woods Civic Association

Magnolia Blossom
The Magnolia Woods Civic Association (MWCA) was created in 1993 to serve as the steward of the neighborhood and further a sense of community among residents.  Toward that end, the association is dedicated to fostering a highly desirable and safe quality of life for residents and visitors.  It does so by:

  • Initiating and organizing activities that sustain and enhance the neighborhood’s physical environment;
  • Engaging in special projects aimed at maintaining our neighborhood’s natural beauty;
  • Organizing informational meetings and communications as a service to residents;
  • Collaborating with other neighborhood organizations on issues important to residents; and
  • Working with City agencies, the Metropolitan Council, the Baton Rouge Police Department and other civic entities to monitor and positively affect safety, zoning, and quality of life concerns.

For these and many more reasons, the MWCA is recognized and respected by City officials and other civic organizations as the “consensus voice” for the Magnolia Woods neighborhood.  We welcome interested members of our community to join in our effort to serve as stewards of this beautiful and diverse area.


MWCA is a voluntary nonprofit corporation that serves an area roughly bounded by Staring Lane on the east, Rodney drive on the west, Highland Road on the south, and Dawson Creek on the north.  The MWCA Bylaws define the “Magnolia Woods Neighborhood” more precisely and specify that membership is open to owners or residents of residential property within that specified area.

The Articles of Incorporation specifies that the association be led by at least six and no more than 12 directors.  The traditional make-up has been 12 so association members have maximum opportunity to help lead the organization.  Directors are elected to staggered three year terms; thus four positions come up for election each year. Board elections are held at the MWCA Annual Membership Meeting.

Four officers lead the association:  a president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer.  All serve one-year terms and are elected by the Board.

The Board of Directors meets monthly on the second Tuesday of the month as advertised on the MWCA Calendar of Events.
