The public is invited to attend Tuesday's ceremony at the Fairdale Village Green Park

Louisville – Councilman Mark Fox (D-13) invites the community to celebrate the unveiling of an honorary street sign for Col. Russel S. McDaniel near the roundabout off W Manslick Road on Tuesday, November 9, at 5:00 p.m.

McDaniel, a World War II Army veteran, was the former Jefferson County Police Chief from 1971 to 1978 and then again from 1985 to 1986. He was credited with giving equal opportunity for minority and female officers and with creating Kentucky’s first take-home car program.

McDaniel was a lifelong Fairdale resident. So Metro Council is honoring McDaniel’s service and commitment by placing an honorary street sign near the roundabout in the center of Fairdale. The sign will designate an old portion of Mitchell Hill Road as “Russell S. McDaniel Way.”


“I am very proud to celebrate an innovative leader whose wise decisions were well ahead of his time. Thanks to Russell McDaniel’s dedication, we still enjoy the benefits to public safety and security today,” said Councilman Fox.

The ceremony will be held in the greenspace near the gazebo of the Fairdale Village Green Park, which is located at 10714 W Manslick Road. The space is highlighted within a red triangle on the map below.

The event is open to the public. Anyone wanting to attend the ceremony can park in the areas highlighted by a purple line on the map, which corresponds to Shack in the Back BBQ located at 10706 W Manslick Road.
