Ward-Pugh and Neighborhoods to celebrate Mayor's Mile
Thursday September 26, 2013
Louisville – Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh and four neighborhoods in the Ninth District are encouraging residents to lace up their walking shoes and come out for the Mayor’s Mile Walk on Saturday, September 28th.
“This is a special event because it will also mark the one year anniversary of new sidewalks and the reconfiguration of Brownsboro Road to make it safer for pedestrians,” says Ward-Pugh.
The Butchertown Neighborhood Association, Clifton Community Council, Clifton Heights Community Council and the Crescent Hill Community Council are asking residents to come out between 10:0am to 12:00pm to take the first of many walks on the Mayor’s Mile.
The starting point is the Clifton Kroger Parking Lot where walkers then venture to a loop from Ewing Avenue to Haldeman Avenue crossing at the signaled crosswalk and returning back along Brownsboro Road to Ewing again, making a measured mile. The first walk will be led by Councilwoman Ward-Pugh
The event is being coordinated by the Neighborhood Pedestrian and Bike Access Committee which includes the four neighborhoods. Signs are posted to mark the route. The signs will have a smaller sign below in Braille produced by the American Printing House for the Blind.
“The Brownsboro Road Diet has had a major impact on this area making it safer and allowing more people to get out and walk their neighborhood,” says Ward-Pugh. “I hope everyone will come out and join us for this great event. You not only can improve your health but also learn more about the neighborhoods around this Mayor’s Mile.”
