The Association

The Mentelle Neighborhood Association was formed in 2006, succeeding the earlier Eastside Neighborhood Association, to improve the neighborhood and represent the interests of people living within East Main Street, Walton, National and Richmond avenues. Membership is open to homeowners, but all residents are welcome and encouraged to participate in activities. The non-profit association is registered with the city’s Division of Planning and the Fayette County Neighborhood Council.

Neighborhood Traffic Issues

The Mentelle Neighborhood includes portions of 14 streets with a variety of traffic issues.  As a matter of policy, the association does not seek to become involved in traffic issues affecting individual streets. The MNA board thinks the best course of action is for concerned neighbors on an affected street to work together with city officials and staff to resolve traffic issues.
