Great American Beer Run LOUISVILLE, KY 7-21-12

Now this is my kind of running event…

Brewing was a major industry in the early years of the River City. With the resurrection of our beloved Falls City and several outstanding microbreweries, Louisville seems to be hitting its stride once again.

Nestled in the midst of the grand homes of the historic Cherokee Triangle neighborhood, Willow Park will serve as the epicenter for the Louisville Beer Run and craft beer festival. The run will take you to the top of Baringer Hill and along the famous Cherokee Park Scenic Loop, known for its thick woodlands and rolling hills. In the heart of the Highlands – and with the excitement of Bardstown Road only a block away – this Beer Run will be a perfect warm up to a great summer evening of fun!

Early Bird $39 – until 5.31.12 / Regular $44 – until 6.30.12 / Late $49 – until 7.20.12 (close)

Walkability Workshop – June 30th


Preservation alert

Metro Council committee meeting planned to VOTE on the proposed Metro Landmarks ordinance amendment
Tuesday, June 12th at 1:30 pm Metro Chambers
6th & Jefferson Streets, 3rd Floor
Below is an email from Councilman Tom Owen regarding a meeting of the Planning/Zoning committee of the Metro Council TOMORROW – June 12th at 1:30 pm in Metro Chambers.

The amendment to the landmarks ordinance proposed by Councilman Yates is going to voted on tomorrow! Public testimony is only heard at these meetings at the discretion of the Chair of the Committee (Jon Ackerson). We don’t believe further testimony will be heard, but a show of support in opposition to the proposed amendment could be helpful! These proposed changes would greatly alter the landmarks ordinance, a successful tool that has been protecting & promoting Louisville landmarks for over 40 years!

Please attend this meeting if you can!

Two public hearings were held and there was an over whelming majority of the public that were not in support of changing the landmarks ordinance!

Ask the Metro Council why they would vote on changes to a local ordinance that the community has said doesn’t need to change?

Persons who have written me about proposed revisions of our Metro Landmarks Ordinance:

I learned this morning that proposed revisions in our Metro Landmarks Ordinance will be heard and voted on TOMORROW at the Metro Council’s Planning Zoning and Land Use Committee at 1:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers on the 3rd Floor of City Hall at 6th and Jefferson Streets. Today, I tried unsuccessfully to make the case that this issue should be voted up or down in meetings in July after the current intense season of budget negotiations and the Budget approval Council meeting on June 21.
