  • Hurstbourne Parkway (from KY 22 to I-64)
  • LaGrange Road (from North English Station road to Reamers Road)
  • Collins Lane (from Westport Road to Old LaGrange Road)

  • KY 22 (from Brownsboro Road to Chamberlain Lane)
  • Westport Road (from Shelbyville Road to LaGrange Road)

Youth Golf Lessons

 Long Run Golf Course is offering young people in District 17 an opportunity to learn some basics about the game of golf.  For just $10, boys and girls ages 6-18 can sign up for golf lessons to be held Tuesday, August 10 and Thursday, August 12.  The classes will begin at 9 a.m. and last approximately one hour.  Refreshments will be provided on both days.  Clubs will be made available for those who do not have them.  To register, call Councilman Stuckel at 574-1117.  Spots are limited and are reserved in the order in which they are taken.     


Update on Closure of Old LaGrange Road

 In early June the Department of Highways District 5 Office temporarily closed a section of Old LaGrange Road just west of Ormsby Lane.  This closure was due to the replacement of a bridge in the area.  Construction is scheduled for completion by August 15. 


Retirement of Major Wiley

 Major Darice Wiley, Commander of LMPD’s 8th Division, has decided to retire at the end of this month.  Many of you have had the opportunity over the last few years to work with her and know how effective she has been.  Crime in the 8th Division has dropped each of the last two years when compared to the previous year.  Major Wiley has always been accessible, friendly and willing to do whatever she could to address the needs of the residents with whom she worked.  She will be greatly missed.


Breast Cancer Screening

 The Louisville and Jefferson County Partnership in Cancer Control is sponsoring a breast cancer screening at no cost to program-eligible women 40 years of age and older without insurance.  The event will be held on Thursday, August 12 from 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. at Hope Lutheran Church, 4200 Shenandoah Drive.  Call the Kentucky Cancer Program at 852-6318 to schedule an appointment.  Insurance, Medicare and Medicaid will also be accepted.


National Night Out

 LMPD’s Eighth Division will host a National Night Out on Tuesday, August 3 from 6-8 p.m. at Westport Village.  Research shows that when neighbors know each other and look out for each other crime goes down.  Residents will be treated to food, music and activities for children.  They will also have an opportunity to:

 

  • Meet with neighbors, police and community leaders
  • Establish or revive a neighborhood block watch
  • Receive valuable crime information

 

For more information, please call the Eighth Division at 574-2258.
