“Louisville’s Next Top Neighbor” could be from Irish Hill

The Irish Hill Neighborhood Association is looking for nominations for Louisville’s Next Top Neighbor.  IHNA is a member organization of the Center For Neighborhoods (CFN).  Below is an excerpt from their website describing the program.

If you would like to nominate someone as a Top Neighbor, please send an email to and we will get the nomination form to you. We are also looking for location suggestions within the neighborhood.

Center For Neighborhoods is excited to announce our next public art program,“Louisville’s Next Top Neighbor 

Louisville’s Next Top Neighbor is an inspiring mural project promoting neighborhood leaders who exemplify the “21st Century Neighbor” from all 26 districts. This is an important opportunity to recognize neighborhood leaders who are asking “What’s Next?” and improving the quality of life and the environment within their community. 


A total of 40 portraits will be completed – 20 in Fall 2011 and 20 in Spring 2012. One neighbor will be selected from all 26 Metro Council districts from nominees submitted by the Metro Councilperson and the remaining 14 nominees will come from the CFN Neighborhood Association Members.


During the month of November, portraits of Louisville’s Next Top Neighbors will be completed at the specific locations. Center For Neighborhoods will announce the dates and time at which the artwork will be available for public viewing.


Louisville’s Next Top Neighbor is being funded by a generous gift from Owsley and Christy Brown.
