Reducing crime is one of the key goals of the Melrose East Community Association. In an effort to continue to fund the appropriate measures, the Melrose East Crime Prevention District was formed. The newly formed CPD will collect a small tax assessment from each property owner in our Melrose East community and funds will be used annually to protect the very community in which we live, work and play.  A small investment today will have large rewards for the future of Melrose East.

A New Beginning for Melrose East

What Is MECA?

          The Melrose East Community Association is a 501(c) 4 charitable and tax-deductible association of residents, business, and property owners in the Melrose East community and the surrounding areas. MECA is led by the Board of Directors elected at its annual meeting.

          MECA's community goals include reducing the crime rate, cleaning and maintaining local facilities and using existing blight ordinances to clean, clear, and improve existing lots and buildings in the area all of which will attract new business and residents to our community.

          Belonging to MECA provides members with an opportunity to make a contribution to their own community where they work and live by assisting with crime prevention by providing security patrols through the Baton Rouge Police Department, upkeep of the community with beautification and clean-up projects, and blight elimination.

          Members may join MECA for many reasons, including community involvement, personal development, professional networking, and camaraderie with fellow members. But perhaps the most important benefit is the satisfaction gained from making a real difference in your community.
