Councilman Kevin Kramer will host a trolley tour for residents of District 11 on  Saturday, June 17th starting at 8:00 am at the McMahan Fire Station (4318 Taylorsville Road.) Councilman Kramer will lead a group of approximately 25 constituents on a tour of District 11 and its surrounding areas, and in a new twist, the trolley will offer interested residents a chance to tour downtown Louisville.

Kramer initiated the idea of a town hall meeting on wheels last year and the tours were met with much enthusiasm as more than 100 residents participated. This year Metro Council President Kramer hopes to give citizens a look at more than just District 11 and he will guide participants for a firsthand view of important projects in Downtown Louisville.
The tour is scheduled to visit such sites as Skyview Park, Buechel Little League Fields, Jeffersontown City Hall, Hurstbourne Parkway, the Buechel Train Depot along with downtown locations such as the two debated arena sites, City Hall, Waterfront Park, Main Street and 4th Street Live.

"I am very excited about this year's trolley tours, they will highlight the exciting things happening both in our surrounding community of District 11 and in our downtown. For residents that do not get downtown often, this tour will allow them a chance to see the tremendous development taking place in our city." - Metro Council President Kevin Kramer

The free “trolley tour” will last approximately 5 hours, will include a short lunch, and is limited to 25 participants. District 11 Residents interested in participating are encouraged to call Councilman Kramer’s office at 574-1111 or to RSVP for the tour. A second tour will be offered in September for those unable to book their spot on the June tour.  Residents who did not participate last year will be given first opportunity to take the tour.
