Louisville Metro Councilman Jecorey Arthur of District 4 announced today with the #502LIVEstreamers the creation of a Neighborhood Advisory Board that will aid in his decision making for the 10 neighborhoods housed within his district.
"Power to the People over the People in Power." - Jecorey Arthur
To his knowledge, once Councilman Coen is the only representative to try a similar committee, but Jecorey is unaware of the turnout. This is something we will gladly look into for a future article.
The Ten Neighborhoods
"The District 4 Neighborhood Advisory Board brings all ten residential neighborhoods of the district together to give Councilman Jecorey Arthur advice about policy. District 4 has diverse interests as it spans west to 32nd St, east near Zorn Ave, south to W Oak St, and north to the Ohio River. The board will collaborate across geographical, political, and cultural boundaries to better Louisville by advising Councilman Arthur on legislative priorities, the District 4 Neighborhood Development Fund (NDF), the District 4 Capital Infrastructure Fund (CIF), and the overall city budget. The board is only advisory." - LouisvilleKY.gov
