Louisville – With the advent of a warmer than normal month of March, District 9 is ready to kick off another year of maintaining Lexington Road between Top Hill and Cross Hill Roads. So volunteers will once again check the progress of this area of the Green Triangle Initiative on Saturday, March 24th.
“I am pleased to say our efforts over the last three years have made it easier to maintain this area of Lexington Road,” says Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh. “Our focus this year is planting more as we have less invasive plants to deal with this spring.”
On Saturday, March 24th, the Councilwoman and volunteers will be on hand to check along the hillside and plant, mulch, and water from 8:30am to 12:00pm. Motorists should be advised one lane of traffic will be blocked off on Lexington Road so volunteers will be able to plant, mulch, and water safely.
Gloves, tools and water will be provided during the event. Volunteers are needed for a wide range of activities including, digging holes, planting, spreading mulch and general cleanup.
Since 2010, projects such as Lexington Road have been a key component of the Green Triangle Initiative which focuses on sustainability in the 9th District. Sustaining the environment of a community is a top priority for Ward-Pugh, who is the chair of the Metro Council Sustainability Committee.
“Because of the work of dedicated volunteers, if anyone wants to know how a community can easily protect the environment they can look no further than this stretch of Lexington Road,” says Ward-Pugh.
If you have questions about volunteering, contact Councilwoman Ward-Pugh’s office at 574-1109 or email email@example.com .
