Economic development forum set for tonight at SW Gov't Center

- "Movies Under the Stars" at the Iroquois Amphitheater continues this Sunday, June 12th. This month’s movie is "Secretariat" and begins at 9pm. Concessions available.

- The Southwest Dream Team is hosting an Economic Development Forum tonight at the SW Government Center. Here's the info from the email I received:
Light refreshments start at 5:00 p.m with the Forum scheduled for 5:30 to 7 p.m. Mayor Fischer joins us along with Dan Jones from 21st Century Parks, Eileen Pickett from GLI, David Morris from the Economic Development Office and John Hollenbach, who is a developer in Metro Louisville. The other two panelists are Gant Hill, who is an area developer and Chuck Kavanaugh from the Home Builders Association.

We will be covering 5 topics in 15 minute intervals and plan on a lively discussion about the future of economic development in the South End and Southwest Louisville. Hope to see you there.

It doesn't look like any neighborhood activists or worker advocates are scheduled to participate.

  1. Missed the econdev forum. Gant Hill is a Facebook friend. I need to read VR every day.
