Mayor Jerry Abramson today announced the Workshops on Wheels (WOW) program, a mobile learning experience designed to connect citizens with other neighborhoods throughout Louisville Metro.
Workshops On Wheels will be held Saturday, May 15, 2004, starting at 8 a.m. at Louisville Male High School, 4409 Preston Highway.
Attendees will be able to sign up for one of four mobile learning labs, each of which will focus on a different area of the Louisville Metro community.
“We’ve been encouraging residents in all of our neighborhoods to ‘get out of their comfort zone’ and connect with people throughout the community,” Abramson said. “Workshops on Wheels is a great way to put the rubber to the road by bringing neighborhood leaders and potential leaders together to share experiences and explore four different sections of Louisville.”
Workshops on Wheels is open to the public. A limited number of registrations are available by calling MetroCall at 311 or 574-5000. The cost is $10, however some scholarships are available. The registration deadline is April 30.
The Workshops on Wheels is a follow-up to the Mayor’s Neighborhood Summit last fall which drew more than 400 persons interested in neighborhood development.
“Like the Neighborhood Summit, WOW is one of many city initiatives aimed at strengthening neighborhoods throughout our hometown,” Abramson said. “We want to engage residents in an on-going conversation with local government so they are partners in planning for community needs and solving community problems.”
