Fifteenth District Councilman George Melton, whose district includes Churchill Downs and the surrounding neighborhoods, will hold a Derby Impact Meeting for all persons living in the immediate Churchill Downs area. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 15th at the Holy Name Church Gym, 2914 S. Fourth Street.
Topics of discussion will include traffic flow and parking restrictions; street closings; police and safety concerns; and fire and EMS responses, as well as trash collection and Derby Festival events that also impact the area.
Churchill Downs representatives will also be on hand to answer questions regarding Derby impact and its responsibilities to the surrounding neighborhoods.
Because the Kentucky Derby is the community’s largest spectator event, everyone who may be impacted is welcome to attend. For further information on the Derby Neighborhood Impact Meeting, or the 15th Council District, please contact Councilman George Melton’s office at 574-1115.
