The Little Italy Residents Association (LIRA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring the quality of life for all who call Little Italy, Columbia & Core neighborhoods their home. From singles to married couples, to professionals and retirees, LIRA Members are as diverse as the styles of architecture that dot the landscape.
We heartily support Community activities that enrich our lives, the lives of local business owners and their employees, as well as those who simply come to visit and enjoy our unique part of town. We keep our Members well-informed with up-to-date communications also encourage involvement in Civic activities -- lending our voices to issues that impact our Downtown neighborhoods. Moreover, we work in concert with law enforcement to keep our Community safe and welcoming.
