Join us on Tuesday, March 21, at 6:30 p.m. at the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana, 2115 Lexington Road, for our bi-monthly D9 Community Conversation. Ms. Angela Akridge, MSD’s Chief Engineer, will be one of our guest speakers to present the 20 Year Comprehensive Facility Plan for MSD. Please plan to join the discussion about our community’s needs and risks, and the cost to meet them. Last year, MSD sought a substantial rate increase and it will likely do so again. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss how the money would be used and to hear your comments and questions.

The draft of the “Critical Repair & Reinvestment Plan” and summaries are available for review and comment at any branch of the Louisville Free Public Library or MSD’s website at

Representatives of the Louisville Metro Office of Sustainability will also speak on several new sustainability initiatives including: the cool roof rebate program; enhancements to the Green Infrastructure incentive program; and free technical assistance and verification for Energy Star Certifications.

As with all D9 Community Conversations, discussion of any other subjects is welcome and I will be available to talk with constituents about any questions, comments or concerns.  Mark your calendar – and bring along a friend or neighbor.
