Welcome to the 'MAC!

Welcome to the 'MAC!"

The 'MAC' stands for Melrose Art and Activities Center, which we shortened to the 'MAC.' 

The MAC is a 'culture of creativity' community center that replaces the old 'Innovation Staton' and offers much more to benefit residents!


 MAC resources include:

  • Business Center

  • Children’s Art and Activity Room

  • Resident Services

    • Maria Calkins, our Resident Services Coordinator, is now located at the MAC. Please call or text if you need help finding a job or enrolling for GED, Lanier Tech, or college.
