August’s D9 Community Conversation Wednesday, Aug 17 2016 

Join your neighbors for the bimonthly D9 Community Conversation on Tuesday, August 23.  The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Peterson-Dumesnil House, 301 South Peterson Avenue.   The meeting will focus on Metro Parks and features Parks Director Seve Ghose.

We are blessed with many parks in District 9, including Champions, Seneca, Eva Bandman, Crescent Hill (home of the Mary T. Meagher Aquatic Center), Beargrass Creek Greenway, Bingham, Breslin, Clifton, Eastover, Irish Hill, Kennedy Court and Story Avenue.  (All Metro Parks are listed here:  https://louisvilleky.gov/government/parks/find-park).  In the last 20 months, we’ve seen new surfaces at the Seneca Park tennis courts, accessibility and security improvements at Bingham Park, a new parking area near the dog run at Champions Park and more funding for planned improvements at Story Avenue Park.  Metro Council has also significantly increased funding for deferred maintenance in the Metro Parks. But there is much more to do.

Join your neighbors on Tuesday night to learn more about your parks and to let us know what you would like to see in the future.

We also want to hear from you on any topics – an unscripted, open conversation about D9 and the City. Please mark your calendar and join us – and bring along a friend or neighbor!

Message from Louisville Water Company Tuesday, Aug 16 2016 

Louisville-Water-CompanyLouisville Water Company (LWC) is wrapping up the work on Mellwood with the 36-inch water main.  On Wednesday (08/17), the contractor is flushing the pipe to put it back in service.  To do this, there will be a no right hand turn from Mellwood onto Frankfort Avenue for Wednesday.  The access point to the main is close to that turning lane.

This work should only take a day and then the turning lane from Mellwood to Frankfort will reopen on Thursday (08/18).

This water main also extends along Main Street.  LWC needs to clean and line the main near Main and Clay streets.  LWC learned last week that LGE has a gas line on top of the water line so the LWC has delayed that work for at least two weeks so LGE can make the repairs.

  • Limit outdoor activity, especially midday when it is the hottest part of the day, and avoid direct sunlight.
  • Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.
  • Take cool showers or baths to lower your body temperature.
  • Check on at-risk friends, family and neighbors at least twice a day.
  • Take special care of your pets in the heat, including ample shade and water and limits on exercise.

Stay hydrated

  • Drink from two to four cups of water every hour while working or exercising outside.
  • Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink. Avoid alcohol or liquids containing high amounts of sugar.
  • Make sure your family, friends and neighbors are drinking enough water.
