Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch is beginning a brand new year by once again extending an invitation to residents of District 13 to come out for “Coffee with Your Councilwoman” on Saturday, February 18th at 9:30am at First String Family Sports Grill .

“This is an event designed to offer an opportunity to talk with your Metro Council representative one on one if you have an issue in your neighborhood,” says Welch. “My staff and I will be on hand to listen to your concerns. We will also update you on projects and initiatives currently happening in District 13 as well as all over our community.”

The Councilwoman says “Coffee with Your Councilwoman” is designed to answer the following:
  • Do you have a question about Louisville Metro Government?
  • How about a concern for your neighborhood?
  • Is there an important issue facing our community you’d like to share?
The February “Coffee with Your Councilwoman” gets under way at 9:30 am at the First String Family Sports Grill, 5921 New Cut Road. Coffee is complimentary from First String Family Grill for those who come out to talk. Breakfast may be purchased at a reasonable cost.

Rumor patrol: Ashby Lane apartments "upscale", not "Section 8"

Not a housing project.
There are rumors flying around the southwest about the housing development beginning to take shape near the Greenbelt Highway on Ashby Lane, and I think it is appropriate to address the issue to eliminate any confusion as to what is happening.

Ashby Green Apartment Homes are now under construction at 7401 Ashby Lane. The complex is owned by W.M. Bullitt, LLC.

Ashby Green is not "Section 8" or "low-income" housing nor is it a replacement for Iroquois Homes. It is not owned or being built by the government as a "housing project".

Floor plans and examples of units that will be available are online at the company's website,

The developers of Ashby Green welcome your questions and comments and have made their contact information available on the website.

So now you know.
