About our association


Hi Neighbor:

In 1995 a group of folks who live in our square mile, the one bordered by Memorial and Mingo and 31st and 41st came together and formed the Fulton Neighborhood Association. It brought together residents of the Briarwood, Longview Acres, Imperial Estates, Memorial Estates, and Lazy Circle subdivisions into one organized partnership. The name Fulton Neighborhood Association was chosen because for many years, the Fulton Elementary School served the needs of the area and Fulton Creek runs through the center of the area.
The Association was formed primarily to protect and enhance property values. Other objectives such as preventing crime and vandalism as well as improving neighborhood and community relationships were also important considerations. Membership is open to anyone who lives within the prescribed boundaries, either as a homeowner or a renter. Meetings are held at least two times a year and usually take place in the Aldersgate United Methodist Church, 3702 S. 90th E. Ave. which is across the street from the Briarwood Pool. The specific dates and times of the meetings are publicized several days in advance by signs placed on most of the busiest corners in the neighborhood and in our Newsletter. You are invited and encouraged to attend these meetings.
Most of our neighborhood is over 30 years old now and this brings some unique challenges to the maintenance of property values. Since the homes we live in are the biggest investment that most of us will ever make. Rising to these challenges becomes more and more important.
Accordingly, each one of us owes it to himself as well as to his neighbors to become more aware of conditions that definitely cause property values to go down. Some of the more common conditions that have been observed in our area and are in violation of the City Code are as follows:
· Uncut lawns with grass or weeds allowed to grow to 10” or 12”.
· Vehicles parked on the lawn.
· Vehicles parked in the street for more than 24 hours.
· Inoperable vehicles parked in driveways.
· Operating commercial businesses in a residential zoned area.
· Trash and or junk that is allowed to accumulate and pile up around the house or out by the fence, on the front porch or in the driveway.
· Using the front porch, driveway or side of the house for storage.
So, the Fulton Neighborhood Association is asking for everyone’s help. Lets all work together to keep our property values up by making our neighborhood look the very best it can.
And remember, you are encouraged to become part of the Fulton Neighborhood Association. The meetings are open so come and participate. The more participation we have, the more effective we can become.
Thanks for your support;
The Fulton Neighborhood Association
