This Friday, May 7 is a trolley hop day and May is National Preservation Month. What better time for a preservation-minded trolley hop? The developers behind the Whiskey Row Lofts thought so (that’s Bill Weyland, Valle Jones, and Stephen Jones), and are sponsoring an open house to discuss preservation at the Whiskey Row Gallery at 131 West Main Street from 5:30 until 9:00 PM. Food and refreshment will be provided, so show up (by bike would be great since it’s also Bike to Work Month) and lend your support to the Iron Quarter block and preservation in general in Louisville.

Louisville History & Issues has the latest _nine_ petitions to sign from Stephen Porter of OPEN Louisville. You can download in advance, sign, have others sign, and either mail or bring them down to the Trolley Hop.
These historic buildings MUST be saved and put to good reuse. Downtown cannot afford another loss of a block of significant architecture. Whiskey Row deserves an allout effort by Metro government to protect and assure their preservation and adaptive use. The current owners should make the committment themselves for their preservation since that was a part of their original proposal, or other owners with such committment should be found.
