In This Issue...

Hello from Donna!


The last nine months have been challenging and rewarding . Our office has filtered tons of calls and requests as well as navigating through a difficult budget process. Now that things are calm, I wanted to focus on communicating with you and keeping all the residents of District 5 in the loop. 

We have an open door policy and will attempt to get you answers when asked. Please feel free to contact me directly through email if I can ever be of assistance. 




Speed humps, sidewalks and street lights

Our office has received many calls requesting sidewalks, speed humps and street lights and we appreciate the requests. I do want to help the district understand the Speed Hump process:

1. Call the office at 502-574-1105 to make the request.

2. We will send the request to Public Works to do a study. Please note, all streets do no qualify

3. If the street qualifies then someone on the block must champion the effort by getting homeowners to vote "yes" to speed humps, it takes a vote of 70% or greater.

4. Once the ballots are retuned, we then need to find the funding for the speed humps which cost about $2100.00 each hump.

This office wants to make our streets as safe as possible, however we can not always deliver because of circumstances we cannot control.

We hope this helps!

Neighborhood News

While the weather is great, I want to meet with you and your neighbors on the Front Porch. I have done several Front Porch chats in the district and the information I gather is unbelievable!!

So, if you want to set up a Front Porch chat with you and a few neighbors, please call the office at 502-574-1105 to schedule.

Together we can change this district one Front Porch at a time
