Dear Neighbor,

It's hard to believe we are almost to February of a new year. I hope you and your family have made it through the wintry blast of the past week relatively unscathed. 

Metro Council has started the new year with some reorganization and new ideas to help move our City foward. 

For the next year, I was asked by my colleagues to serve as the Government Oversight Chair. This honor has been a role of mine in the past. Committee chairmanships change with some frequency, so one is never certain of their leadership post until it is selected each year. I appreciate the confidence of the other council members and this added opportunity to serve you and Louisville Metro.

Safety Tips from LMPD 6th Division


Hikes Lane | Final Phase


Hikes Lane is undergoing a multi-month rehabilitation project, which has largely been completed on schedule. Cleanup and cosmetic work remains. Expect delays and detours as we repair and replace many of the concrete slabs that make up this connective roadway. We will try to keep you updated on closures as we are made aware of them. 

IMPORTANT!! - Pay close attention to work plan and detour map to best navigate the area!

School Traffic Guards Needed


The Louisville Metro Police Department and the traffic guards it employs take their responsibility for the safety of students and pedestrians at their assigned intersections throughout Louisville Metro seriously. Currently, they are below their authorized strength and do not have enough traffic guards to cover all the intersections with a need for traffic control. Furthermore, traffic guards are assigned intersections based upon a contractual bidding process. LMPD communicates with the affected schools and is continuously attempting to hire more traffic guards. If you are interested in becoming a traffic guard, please click on this link: https://www.governmentjobs.com/careers/louisvilleky/jobs/2941008/traffic-guard-i for information on the application process.


Join a Metro Board or Commission

If you are interested in volunteering for one of Louisville Metro Government's Boards or Commissions, now is the time to start. By being a part of a board or commission, you will offer your time and your talents to improve the quality of life in our community.

There are approximately 100 boards and commissions with many areas of interest, including business and economic development, land planning, parks and recreation, public health and public safety.

Public Notices

Our office routinely publishes information on upcoming public meetings and regarding planning and zoning cases in and around District 26. Our posting in this forum is not an official notice. This list may not be comprehensive nor does it include other zoning matters decided upon by zoning authorities other than Louisville Metro Government.

While we intended to expand the scope of our zoning notices, our office reverted to the former policy of relaying the information we receive from Planning and Zoning. We are limited by ordinance and state law to provide the publicly available information.
