Which Projects were Funded?

 

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – (April 10, 2019) The votes are in!  The people have spoken!  Residents of Metro Council Districts 6 and 8 have chosen physical improvements for their neighborhoods under the Our Money Our Voice participatory budgeting initiative. 

Our Money Our Voice is a joint initiative of Public Health and Wellness’s Center for Equity and District 6 Metro Councilman and Council President, David James, and District 8 Metro Councilman, Brandon Coan.

 

The projects residents selected for District 6 are sidewalk improvements totaling $100,000 will be implemented throughout District 6 neighborhoods including California, Victory Park, Old Louisville, Limerick and Algonquin. Our resident-led steering committee gave priority to sidewalk repairs near public and senior housing.

“This was a tremendous experience for District 6 residents,” said Councilman David James.

“It gave them a direct voice in decisions that affect them, their families and their neighborhood.  It was real people making decisions about how their tax dollars would be spent.”
