Sustainability Story: Ohio River Sweep – June 17

Ohio River Sweep

It’s time to clean up the Ohio River bank in D9. Plan to volunteer for the 28th Annual Ohio River Sweep sponsored by MSD, Ohio River Valley Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO), LG&E and Louisville Water. Ohio River Sweep is one of the largest annual environmental cleanups in the United States. It will take place on Saturday, June 17 from 9:00 a.m. – Noon. Thousands of volunteers will remove tons of trash and debris. This cleanup encompasses the entire length of the river, from its origin in Pittsburgh, PA to its end in Cairo, IL, including nearly 3,000 miles of shoreline and many tributaries.

An MSD employee will coordinate each site, supplying volunteers with gloves, trash bags and a commemorative T-shirt.

There are two District 9 sites you can participate at this year.

Register now for Ohio River Sweep 2017! For more information visit: www.louisvillemsd.org/ohioriversweep2017.

We’d like to feature your sustainability story - a resident or business doing good things for the environment.  Riding the bus, bicycling, walking, gardening and more - our eNews will feature practices which can benefit all of us.  Send your story to Bill Hollander or Kyle Ethridge

Lexington Road Land Use Public Meetings

Lexington Road Land Use

Louisville Metro Council and Develop Louisville initiated the Lexington Road land use and zoning study to make recommendations for the future land uses for the properties along the Irish Hill corridor. The study builds upon and will update the 2002 Irish Hill Neighborhood Plan.  The boundaries for this study include an area along Lexington Road between Baxter Avenue and the easternmost crossing of Beargrass Creek. The Neighborhood Plan recommended a further analysis of the land uses and zoning along the corridor and this effort implements that recommendation. The land use and zoning study and the subsequent approval process will take place over the summer of 2017.

A Neighborhood Advisory Committee was recommended by me and Councilwoman Barbara Sexton Smith, and appointed by Mayor Fischer. The third study meeting is Tuesday, June 20, 2017 from 6:00 PM until 7:30 PM.

The will be held at the Commonwealth Theatre Center, 1123 Payne Street, Louisville, KY 40204, and the public is invited and encouraged to attend.
