The 300 new apartments at 1373 Lexington Rd are beginning to take shape. The plans are for leasing office and clubhouse to be open in mid-September, with the first units ready for residents in mid-December, bringing 20 units on line every few weeks. The project should be 100% complete by June, 2017.

After planning to hold a community meeting in Feb., Louisville Metro has gone back to re-do the traffic counts. Since some area road construction has wrapped, they will have better data to establish a final design and timeline for paving and adding bike lanes. In the meantime, it’s a pretty bumpy ride through the area.
Formerly called the Lexington & Payne Basin, MSD will present and accept comments on Apr. 26 at the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana, 2115 Lexington Rd at 6:30.
The 13.7M gallon basin is designed to keep area sewage out of Beargrass Creek.

Irish Hill Cleanup—Need Volunteers!
Saturday, April 23 . 9am to Noon
Meet at Irish Hill Park. Cooper & Lexington Rd
The Irish Hill Neighborhood Association, in partnership with the Mayor’s “Give a Day” initiative, the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Brightside, is holding our spring neighborhood cleanup on April 26th from 9am until noon. Join us and students and families from SBTS as we de-litter Irish Hill. Plenty of trash bags and gloves will be provided. If you have rakes, shovels or brooms, please bring them with you. Accompanied kids are welcome. Meet at Irish Hill Park at the intersection of Cooper & Lexington Rd.
Residents and business associates are encouraged to walk to the meet up site. If you are driving, parking is available at Irish Hill Park. If you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com.
This event is part of the 1937 Project. What’s that? Look here: http://www.sbts.edu/current-students/student-life/the-1937-project/
If you have a few hours to spare, we sure could some help in the following areas.
- Newsletter Distribution – We have nearly 500 households and business. It’s good exercise.
- Picnic Planning – We like to have at least 2 kid-friendly events in Breslin Park – one in the summer and one in September for our annual meeting.
- Tree Planting – We would like to replace some aging street trees and add some new ones.
