Baxter Station Depot Cleaning

Tired of the mess under the Baxter Station Depot? Do you walk or ride your bike under the rail road trestle and wish there wasn’t so much debris? Want to make the “entrance” from downtown to Irish Hill look smashing?

The Irish Hill Neighborhood Association, in partnership with the Mayor’s “Give a Day” initiative, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Brightside, is holding a cleanup on April 20th from 9am until noon. …

We know what you’re thinking … “That’s Thunder day for crying out loud.” Well, yes it is. There will still be plenty of time to join your friends at the Waterfront. We can make it look great, then sit back and enjoy the show, knowing that we did a good job.

Join us and students from SBTS as we clean out brush, pick up trash and make the area as clean as we can. Plenty of trash bags and gloves will be provided. If you have rakes, shovels, brooms and/or loppers, please bring them with you.

Residents and business associates are encouraged to walk to the clean up site. If you are driving, parking is available at Irish Hill Park, Baxter Avenue Baptist Church and at the Bradley Center (entering at the main Home of the Innocents entrance). Street parking not be allowed. If you have any questions, please email us at info@irishhillneighbors.org.   If you park at Baxter Ave Baptist Church and arrive between 8:30am and 9:00am, they will give you coffee & donuts as a way to say Thank You for participating.

Irish Hill Still Seeing RED This Fall

Weather permitting, this Monday, Apr. 15, Irish Hill Park will be receiving (5) new trees-  (2) Red Oaks, (2) Red Sunset Maples and (1) Commemoration Sugar Maple which will reach 80 ft, 45 ft and 50 ft, respectively, when they reach full maturity. All should be blazing red this fall! Our new tree canopy will not only be beautiful, but will cleanse the air, provide shelter and shade, and reduce the urban heat-island effect.

Many thanks to all involved in this endeavor:

  • Center for Neighborhoods for the hookup
  • Louisville Metro Tree Advisory Commission member & Seneca Gardens Arborist, Michael Hayman for making it happen
  • Brightside for the $1000 grant
  • Green Ridge Farm in E-town for the 3 ½” caliper trees
  • Greenhaven Tree Care for installation
  • Metro Parks for the excavation and advice

Irish Hill has pledged to help care for our new big babies. We plan to get some tree gator bags to keep them watered this summer and will post a watering schedule. If you can be available once a month or so, to help on a watering, it would help so much. Please send your contact info to info@irishhillneighbors.org.

 

Deadline for LNTN is near.

If you plan to nominate anyone as Irish Hill’s representative of Louisville’s Next Top Neighbor, please remember you must have your nomination form submitted by Wednesday, September 28th. This will give the Board of Directors time to review and vote on the nominations before Center For Neighborhood’s Friday deadline.
