Dear Neighbor,

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Town Hall meeting. We have taken many comments and concerns down and will be updating you in the coming days and months as work is done on those concerns. 

There are several public meetings coming up in the next few weeks including variances in Breckenridge Lane and Stoney Brook Dr., as well as a neighborhood meeting on a planned expansion of the Meredith Dunn School. You should submit comments on those proposals directly to Planning and Design through the avenues listed below. If your comments are not submitted through those channels, they may not make it into the item record, and will not be allowed to be considered in the determinations by the boards who rule on these proposals. 

Work continues

Enjoy the week,


Brent T. Ackerson
26th District Councilman

The LIHEAP Summer Subsidy component provides households a one-time benefit ranging from $50 to $250 depending on income levels and housing category. Residents can apply regardless of the status of their utility bills. The benefit amount is paid directly to the electric vendor (i.e. LG&E).

The LIHWAP program also provides a one-time benefit ranging from $50 to $100 depending on income levels.

Food in Your Neighborhood Survey

The information you provide in this survey will help develop a multi-year strategic plan to build a more just and sustainable food system in Louisville!

The goal is to engage as many residents as possible in the community food survey, with special emphasis on those experiencing food insecurity and living and/or working in areas of concentrated poverty.


You can help shape the Food Vision 2030 multi-year strategic plan for a better food system! 

More Info: 

With support from a USDA Regional Food System Partnership Grant, Food in Neighborhoods is working with Louisville residents to develop the Food Vision 2030. As part of this process, Food in Neighborhoods will be engaging community voices in various ways, including food summits, stakeholder focus groups, and distribution of a community food survey.

Through participatory data collection and assessment processes, we will identify needs, gaps, threats, strengths, and opportunities in Louisville’s local-regional food system, specifically those related to food-insecure populations, food system infrastructure and value chains, and production sustainability.
