Louisville Water Company – Eastern Parkway Project Phase 3 Has Begun


Louisville Water Company (LWC) has started the third and final phase of the “Eastern Parkway Project” to renovate a 1930s water main that stretches from the University of Louisville to LWC’s Crescent Hill Water Treatment Plant. The project will extend the life of one of Louisville Water’s oldest water mains. To minimize disruption, LWC is using an innovative process called slip lining. For more information on this process go to LouisvilleWater.com/EasternPkwyProject.

Phase 3 is along Lexington Road and Stilz Avenue and is expected to run to May 2020. Residents will not lose water service during the work, but there will be detours and lane closures. The project will require some road closures and the narrowing of Lexington Road from four to two lanes.

The first complete closure is Stilz Avenue from Grinstead to Lexington Road. LWC has also closed two lanes of traffic on Lexington Road between Grinstead and Cross Hill Road. Both of these phases of the project began June 3 and may last up to three months.

Please do not use Pleasantview Avenue as a detour. It has been designated “Local Traffic Only”.

Maps are available here:

A WHAS11 story on the project is here.

If you have any questions, please email LWC at publicinfo@lwcky.com. You can also sign up to receive email communications at LouisvilleWater.com/EasternPkwyProject.

  • Participating dealers offer the rebates up front as dollars off the purchase price.

2019 Crescent Hill 4th of July Festival Seeking Sponsors

Fourth of July

Every year, over 10,000 Crescent Hill neighbors and friends gather at the Peterson-Dumesnil House to celebrate our nation’s birthday and enjoy music, games, the pet show, the art fair, and, of course, the fireworks. The event is organized by the Crescent Hill Community Council (CHCC) and supported by membership dues and generous donations from the community. But an event of this size is very costly to put on. The fireworks alone cost $10,000!

Help CHCC continue this neighborhood tradition and become an Individual Sponsor today! Your support also helps keep the festival a free community event.

Just submit your payment online or complete this form and return by mail with your payment.

Looking for Swimming Options this Summer?


With the help of local partners, a major donation from Papa John’s and a contribution from former University of Louisville and current Atlanta Falcons player Jamon Brown’s foundation, Mayor Greg Fischer announced a plan for summer swimming alternatives for youth and families in the Louisville area.

The plan includes 10 community swim events at two YMCA of Greater Louisville locations, structured swims at Central High School’s pool, and daily community swim sessions at the Mary T. Meagher Aquatic Center – along with transportation options for those who otherwise would have trouble getting to the pools.

The four outdoor pools typically operated by Louisville Parks and Recreation – Norton (Camp Taylor), Algonquin, Sun Valley and Nelson Hornbeck (Fairdale) – will not be open this year due to budget cuts caused by the pension crisis and the Metro Council vote in March against new revenue sources.

Papa John’s donation of $90,000 through the Papa John’s Foundation for Building Community, along with the $5,000 donation from the Jamon Brown Foundation and a matching $5,000 donation from the Atlanta Falcons, will be used for pool operations, including lifeguards.

Beginning June 8, the Southwest and Downtown YMCAs will host 10 community swim events -- five at the Southwest YMCA, 2801 Fordhaven Road, and five at the Downtown YMCA, 555 S. Second St.

Southwest YMCA

  • Saturday, June 15th from 3:30 - 6:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, June 29th from 3:30- 6:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, July 13th from 3:30- 6:30 p.m.
  • Friday, July 26th from 5:30- 830 p.m.
  • Friday, August 9th from 5:30- 830 p.m.

Downtown YMCA

  • Saturday, June 8th from 3:30-6:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, June 23rd from 3:30-6:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, July 7th from 3:30-6:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, July 21st from 3:30-6:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, August 4th from 3:30-6:30 p.m.

Fees are $3/person 14 years and over & $2/youth 13 and under. Vouchers for the summer swim events can be purchased at Metro Parks Administrative Offices, 1297 Trevilian Way; at the Mary T. Meagher Aquatic Center, 201 Reservoir Avenue; or at the YMCA, beginning 30 minutes before the start of the event. Capacity for these events is 100 people/event.

A partnership with JCPS will allow for structured program swims at Central High School’s pool, 1130 Chestnut St., beginning June 14. These four-hour sessions on Fridays and Saturdays will host summer camps, community organizations and individuals interested in swim lessons. Group rates are $2 per child. The swims are from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Friday, and from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays in June and July. Interested organizations should call the Parks and Recreation main office at (502) 574- 7275 for additional information.

The Mary T. Meagher Aquatic Center will host daily open community swims beginning June 10. The hours are Monday-Thursday from noon-4 p.m.; Friday from 12-8 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday from noon-4 p.m. Pricing for 12 and under is $3.00 and adults are $8.00.  

Realizing that transportation may be a barrier for children and families seeking the opportunity for one of these three options, Louisville Parks and Recreation is also working with TARC to provide rides to swim sites for those without access to a vehicle. For more information, please call Parks at (502) 574-7275.

Wildlife in the Community


Written by: Brigette Brouillard, Second Chances Wildlife Center, Director

Tis the season…for wildlife babies! Our native furry friends are having babies. You might come across some babies in need…or not! How should you care for these babies? You don’t! You call a licensed rehabilitator like Second Chances Wildlife Center (#888-5470). Not only is caring for wildlife without a permit illegal, but people are generally not equipped to care for wildlife. Wild animals are not cats, dogs or guinea pigs. They have special needs. In fact, did you know that giving a wild animal cow milk can be fatal? Or that puppy or kitten milk is not good for them, either, despite what the “Internet” or pet stores say? Their nutritional needs are very specific. Bringing wildlife into your home also opens up doors for potential disease, parasites, and bites. Lastly, wild animals need to stay wild instead of getting used to humans.

So how do you know when an animal needs help? Fawn and baby bunnies do not share a nest with Mom. Mom only is with her babies five to ten minutes a day. Unless a fawn is crying for more than two consecutive hours, they do not need rescuing. Fledgling birds flop around on the ground for days before flying. Baby birds can be placed back in nests. Squirrels have multiple nests at a time. If you disturb one, she’ll move her babies to another one. Think of it as their main home and vacation homes.  Find squirrel or raccoon babies on the ground? Place them in a box by where the nest was and wait for Mom to come get them one at a time when there is no disturbance from humans or pets. If you see a tiny possum or skunk, they do need help as Mom is with them at all times. For more details on each specific species and what to do if one really does need intervention, please visit http://secondchanceswildlife.org/is-it-really-orphaned/

How do you prevent wildlife from becoming orphaned and injured? Check your grass before mowing. Keep an eye on outdoor pets. If you know there is a nest in your yard, you can keep your dog on a leash or inside for a week or two so the babies have time to grow and leave your yard. The best time of year to trim trees is late fall, when there are no babies in nests. Just following these few simple things will save many lives!

We need our wildlife to maintain a healthy and balanced ecosystem. Our wildlife needs our respect and compassion. After all, isn’t Louisville a compassionate city?
