Riverbank Filtration Investigative Drilling

Posted: 3/11/2014

Dear Neighbors, Over the next few months, you may notice drilling equipment along the River Road corridor. I?d like to explain the water-quality project Louisville Water will soon begin. In November 2012, the Louisville Water Board of Water Works approved a preliminary engineering project to validate Riverbank Filtration as an advanced treatment technology for the Crescent Hill Filtration Plant. Riverbank Filtration is a natural process that uses the sand and gravel deep in the aquifer along the Ohio River to filter the ground water and provide a high-quality drinking water source. Louisville Water?s B.E. Payne Plant in eastern Jefferson County has used Riverbank Filtration as the source water since late 2010 with a tunnel and collector well project. We believe that Riverbank Filtration is the best advanced treatment technology for the Crescent Hill Filtration Plant to ensure Louisville Water continues to exceed future water quality regulations. The preliminary engineering process will include the installation of several pumping and monitoring wells to further define the water quality and water quantity along this portion of the aquifer. We will take bedrock samples from a select number of wells to evaluate the geologic conditions. The analysis will take approximately one year to complete. In the next several months, you may see drilling equipment along the River Road corridor between Zorn Avenue and Harrods Creek. We expect the drilling will cause slight delays on River Road and minimal impact to the area. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me at (502) 569-3688 or kball@lwcky.com. Sincerely, Kay Ball Program Manager Advanced Treatment Technologies March 7, 2014 Re: Riverbank Filtration for the Crescent Hill Filtration Plant Dear Neighbors, Over the next few months, you may notice drilling equipment along the River Road corridor.

Glenview Burglaries | 11/13/13-11/15/13

Posted: 11/15/2013

We have had two reported burglaries in Glenview this week. 1. 5300 Block Glencrest Dr, 11/13/2013 (06:30a-7:05p): The suspect(s) entered the home by forcing open a kitchen window. Once inside they stole jewelry and cash. They then found the keys to the car and fled in the homeowner?s 2002 Infiniti Q45. 2. 5800 Block Aura Rd, 11/15/2013 (09:30a-10:30a): The wife came home to find someone had broken into the house. The suspect is a white/male, approximately 20-30 YOA, driving a red Nissan 350, 2 door, pickup. The wheels on the truck were custom and appeared to be ?blacked out?. The MO may be that the suspect carried a box to the front door as if to deliver it to see if anyone was at home. This matches a similar burglary on the same morning on Springhouse Farm (new neighborhood off Lime Kiln). Please remind residents to lock their doors, set their burglar alarms, and lock up valuables until this suspect(s) is captured. We are in the process of adding additional off-duty officers in the city in the morning hours. If you see this vehicle DO NOT APPROACH, please get the license plate number and call 911.

River Road Speed Limit

Posted: 6/25/2013

Please see the below email from Metro Public Works regarding the speed limit for trucks on River Rd: In order to address the concerns with construction traffic along River Rd related to the Ohio River Bridges Project, Public Works has determined, through an engineering evaluation, that a reduced speed limit for trucks is appropriate. Due to the magnitude of heavy commercial vehicles, the horizontal and vertical alignment of River Rd, and the volume of passenger vehicles and bicycles, a maximum speed limit of 35 mph will be set for all semitrailer trucks and heavy commercial trucks on River Rd between Zorn Ave and Wolf Pen Branch Rd. In accordance with Ordinance #99-2007 and MUTCD Section 2B, the Director of Public Works has authorized this reduced speed limit for truck traffic on River Rd on a temporary basis and regulatory signs shall be posted along this route for the duration of construction activities related to the Ohio River Bridges Project. This lower speed limit for commercial trucks is not intended to be a permanent restriction on River Rd, but only a temporary regulation to mitigate the impact of the additional truck volume expected during the bridge construction. The maximum speed limit on all other vehicles shall remain at 45 mph along this area of River Rd. Jeff Brown, PE Louisville Metro Public Works Traffic Engineering Supervisor 601 W Jefferson St, Rm 10 Louisville, KY 40202 502-574-3650 fax 502-574-3140 jeffrey.brown@louisvilleky.gov

Postal Service Meeting and Public Meeting - November 7, 2012

Posted: 10/19/2012

Dear Neighbor, Regrettably, the City of Glenview needs to make you aware of some bad news. In the last several months there have been at least six burglaries in Glenview. Two of the burglaries occurred at night while folks were at home in the bed. Several occurred during the middle of the day. Mostly sterling silver flatware and jewelry were taken. Fortunately we have no reports of violence related to the crimes. Glenview is working closely with local law enforcement, and we have taken some additional security measures at the City's expense. Former FBI and Kentucky State Police have been employed to investigate and cooperate with local law enforcement. We've increased the number of road patrols by off-duty Metro officers. Glenview is also working with a consultant to explore security cameras and other measures. There are other options and Glenview wants your input. Meanwhile, be vigilant, keep your doors locked, arm your burglar alarms, and do not hesitate to call the police regarding any suspicious activity. Take note of unusual cars or trucks in the area as well. There will be a public meeting on November 7, 2012 at the Glenview post office. We will let you know more about the crime, and seek your input about Glenview's response. The Glenview public meeting will follow a meeting scheduled by the United States Postal Service to discuss the future of our post office. Unfortunately, our post office is on "the list" for reduction of hours and possible closure. The Postal Service meeting is scheduled at 6 PM, Glenview's meeting will start at the conclusion of the Postal Service presentation. Glenview has rented a tent, and we will provide light refreshments. Lastly, be ready for MSD work on Glenview Avenue which is scheduled to begin October 22, 2012. Construction and drainage work will be just south of the post office along the creek, and temporary closure of the road is possible. Respectfully Submitted, City of Glenview

Public Notice - Hearing to Re-Zone Involving the City of Glenview

Posted: 10/10/2011

Attached is a copy of a Public Notice of a Hearing to re-zone from R-4 to R-1 over 1000 acres that includes the City of Glenview. This will implement a very important part of the Glenview Area Plan conservation initiative that we have been working on for the last four years. You have been getting notices and seeing information about this for several years. All of our large property owners support the change. Our current zoning (R-4) permits a developer to build up to four new homes per acre, which everyone agrees is far too dense for Glenview. R-1 zoning will limit development to a maximum of one home per acre. The public hearing is Thursday, November 3, 2011, 1:00 pm at 514 West Liberty Street. If you have any questions please call Mike Hill at the planning commission. We started this endeavor in 2007 with the Glenview Conservancy, which unanimously decided we should move forward to protect our area the way our neighbors have along Mockingbird Valley Road, and in the Wolf Pen area. Thank you to everyone for your help and support with this important conservation initiative. To view the notice, go to the bottom of the right hand column and click on Public Notice to see all the information.

"Scam" artist in Glenview

Posted: 8/8/2011

The City wanted to inform you about an occurrence that happened about 6:45 Friday on Brittany Woods Circle. A young man in a baseball cap and IU tee shirt came to the door asking for money for some baseball team which in his words was "world famous". The gentleman said neighbors had given him $50-100 dollars. He was given $20,and complained. He then said that he was given $300 by another resident on Brittany Woods Circle. But the resident he claims had given him $300.00 was out of town and knew nothing about it. This resident then got in the car looking for this kid and told him the police had been called and if was legit, he should hang around but if not, he might want to get out of Glenview.He was very belligerent. He also said that his mother, Mrs. Gleeson lived on Orion - that he was from Glenview and she had put a notice about all this in our mailboxes two weeks ago. No one every got any such thing. Officer Hall (who patrols for Glenview) did check Orion and could not locate this person. Giving these people money to get them to go away only encourages it. Please instruct the solicitor that Glenview is a no soliciting city, inform them they may mail them any requests for funds, and then tell them that the police have been notified and are responding. Also if possible we greatly appreciate a description of the person and a license plate number if they are in a car.

Following the City's regular meeting will be an informational meeting held by Louisville Metro Planning & Design explaining the rezoning process starting at 6:00 pm.


REZONING INFORMATIONAL MEETING

Posted: 5/9/2011

Many of you are probably aware that the Glenview Area Neighborhood Plan was adopted in August 2010. One of the recommendations included within the Neighborhood Plan is to rezone a portion of the study area from R-4 to R-1. The result of this zoning change would increase the required minimum lot size from 9,000 square feet to 40,000 square feet; thereby limiting the possibility of the Glenview area from being further subdivided and developed. The Louisville Metro Planning Commission, with the assistance of the staff of Planning & Design Services, is ready to begin the rezoning process to implement this recommendation from the Glenview Area Neighborhood Plan. The first step in the process is to invite all affected and interested parties to an informational meeting to learn more about the rezoning request and how it will affect their properties as well as the Glenview Neighborhood. Louisville Metro Planning & Design Services would like to invite you to an informational meeting to learn more about the rezoning process. The INFORMATIONAL MEETING will be held on Wednesday, May 18th, 2011 at 6:00 PM at the Knights of Columbus Hall, which is located at 4417 River Road, Louisville, KY 40222.

Longview Letter

Posted: 1/22/2010

Longview Lane is a private road, and maintenance of the road and bridges is the residents' responsibility. Because of the horrific Christmas fire, the City of Glenview responded to the emergency situation by having the city engineer evaluate the structural integrity of the bridge. We learned the bridge is considered a culvert, not a bridge, because its span is less than 20 feet. Mayor Breen contacted MSD to see if they would fix or replace the culvert, and MSD agreed to take responsibility for replacement of the culvert. Glenview also posted weight limit signs. The City has no say about the MSD design, or construction schedule, but MSD just told us the bridge will be a concrete box similar to what was there before, only 6' wider. The Harrods Creek Fire Department insisted on widening the bridge. If you have questions, please contact Mark Johnson (540-6370) with MSD, or Chief Aponte at the Harrods Creek Fire Department. Glenview hopes you are pleased that we succeeded in having MSD take responsibility for the work and expense. Once I find out when construction will start, I will send out another letter with construction dates, along with an alternative route, since the bridge will not be passable. Chief Aponte suggested the old interurban railroad instead of going out the back to Poplar Hill. Information will also be posted on the city's webpage: www.glenviewky.gov Thanks, Kacy White Clerk Administrator City Of Glenview 502-292-1997


Longview Lane Bridge Repair

The bridge on Longview was struck by a fire truck leaving the scene of the horrific Christmas fire. The impact caused the side wall of the bridge to fall into the creek. I talked to Mark Adams, our traffic engineer, and he went out and looked at the bridge Saturday, and then Monday with a structural engineer. The bridge cannot be repaired, it must be replaced. There is also grave concern about the structural integrity of the bridge, a heavy vehicle could cause the bridge to collapse into the creek. I called MSD yesterday morning, and MSD has agreed it will pay to replace the bridge. As soon as MSD makes us aware of the construction schedule, we will pass the word on to you. Longview will be closed during the construction work, and those of you south of the bridge will come and go via Sue Grafton's driveway, through the gate, onto Poplar Hill , then out to Blankenbaker. We are all grieving for the Christmas fire losses. Thank you for your patience as we work through the inconveniences necessary to replace the bridge. Your contact for Glenview information is Kacy White, our Clerk Administrator, at 292-1997 or kwhite@glenviewky.gov. Send Kacy your e-mail address to get on the city's news list, or check the city's webpage under the business section. Pray God grants us all a safe and happy new year. Respectfully, Richard M. Breen, Mayor, City of Glenview


Christmas Day Tragedy on Longview Lane

Posted: 12/26/2009

Irv and Cathy Bailey's house on Longview Lane caught fire early on Christmas morning. The cause of the fire remained under investigation Saturday as officials awaited the arrival of heavy excavation equipment that was needed to remove roof and flooring that collapsed into the center of the house, where investigators believe the fire reported shortly after 4:30 a.m. Friday began. Solon L. Bailey, 12, and his brother, William T. "Liam" Bailey, 10, both of Barre, Vt., died at the scene, according to Jefferson County Deputy Coroner Rita Taylor. Preliminary autopsy results show they died of causes consistent with smoke inhalation, with the final determination awaiting results from toxicology tests, Taylor said. The boys were visiting their grandfather, Irving W. Bailey II, and his wife, Cathy Bailey, at their home on Longview Lane off River Road. Irving and Cathy Bailey were released Saturday from University Hospital, where they were treated for injuries from the fire. A memorial service for the boys is scheduled for Tuesday at 11 a.m. at St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church at 6710 Wolf Pen Branch Road in Harrods Creek. Immediately following the service, a visitation will be held at the church in Graves Hall. Funeral services for the boys will be held later this week in Vermont. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that contributions be made in honor of the boys to The Beauregard Foundation: Solon and Liam Fund, c/o Chrysalis Ventures, 101 S. 5th Street, Suite 1650, Louisville, KY 40202. The contributions will be used to support children's education programs. For more on this story please visit http://www.courier-journal.com

Map (right-of-way of River Road)

Posted: 11/12/2009

Glenview posted a map to the business section of our webpage that shows the right-of-way along River Road. The map also shows where the road could be widened to include a bike lane, with the right-of-way the County says they already have. Nothing has been determined, the whole project is still in the discussion phase. Mayor Breen is working with the project team every step of the way representing the interests of the City of Glenview.

Public Comment Meeting on River Road Scenic Byway Corridor Management Plan

Posted: 7/2/2009

On Monday July 13th, 2009 at 6:00 pm at the Gingerwoods Event Hall, formerly the Green Castle Baptist Church, at 7611 Rose Island Road, another public meeting has been scheduled to seek citizen input. After the last meeting, many voiced dissatisfaction with the lack of opportunity to be heard. Because of efforts initiated by the City of Glenview, the Committee has decided to have another public meeting now, instead of waiting until January 2010. Metro Public Works has taken charge of the format and location of the July 13th, 2009 meeting, as it did for the last meeting. Last time, Glenview had no input on the questions that you were asked, or how your responses were counted or reported. As your Mayor, I have stressed to the Committee that you need an opportunity to ask questions and to speak about this important project. Metro Public Works has promised a format on July 13th that will allow this to occur. Your City of Glenview Commission voted unanimously to request the July 13th, 2009 meeting location be moved closer, preferably somewhere on River Road. We suggested the Water Tower in particular. Metro Public Works decided to meet again at the Gingerwood location, and ruled out the Water Tower due to its poor acoustics. If you have a recommendation for alternative meeting places in the future, we would be pleased to hear it. Thank you for your survey responses. When you took the time to answer the questions and return the survey, you helped make sure that your views and the views of the City of Glenview are part of the planning process. Glenview has been assured by Metro Public Works that nothing has been decided about any element of the Scenic Byway Corridor, bike path or otherwise. Please come to the July 13th, 2009 public meeting, so that the public at large can hear from you in addition to the many other voices that will be commenting about this project. Thank you, RICHARD M. BREEN, Mayor City of Glenview

Dear Neighbor

Posted: 6/1/2009

Dear Neighbor, Last Fall on September 27, 2008, the Courier Journal reported "A 4.9 million plan to expand bike routes". The newspaper reported that the project includes creation of a bicycle path along River Road between Zorn and Prospect. I immediately asked to serve on the Project Committee, so that I can be there to represent you and our City. The old inter-urban line is not available for use as a bike path, within the City of Glenview, because the right of way reverted to the abutting owners when the railroad ceased operations. There may be areas outside of Glenview where the old inter-urban line could be used, but not in Glenview. The County has money to purchase right of way, but has agreed it will not use condemnation (eminent domain), only voluntary acquisitions. I have been attending regular meetings since last Fall, and we will now meet at least twice a month through the end of the year. Public meetings will be announced soon, the first will be Tuesday, June 16, 2009 at 5:30 pm. Check the Business Page on the City's web site for the latest information. Send us your e-mail address to be added to Glenview?s news list: kwhite@glenviewky.gov. Please give me your input directly by completing the attached survey, and return it to:City of Glenview Glenview, KY 40025 Thank you, RICHARD M. BREEN Mayor, City of Glenview, KY.

Door to Door Soliciting

Posted: 10/29/2008

A couple of our neighbors have reported magazine subscription solicitors are knocking on their door. We have 2 reports from Orion. Glenview has an ordinance which requires solicitors to apply to the City Clerk for a license. You are well within your rights to request that a solicitor present their City of Glenview permit. Please also feel free to let the Clerk Administrator know if you have witnessed a solicitation.


Thanks to Alberta Allen and Missy Kelly

Posted: 8/1/2008

Many thanks to Alberta Allen and her daughter Missy Kelly for their conservation work on their property along Glenview Ave. In keeping with the suggestions of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife, they are eradicating the fescue which will be replaced with clover. Closer to the woods they might establish several rows of sunflowers. Both plantings will provide many benefits to wildlife, and the clover will be especially beneficial for the apiary on the Allen's property. The City is very appreciative of these conservation minded measures.
