Additionally, two S. Russell Smith, Jr. Awards of Excellence were given to Phil Scherer of Commercial Kentucky and Cathy Duncan, director of Facilities Management & Fleet Operations for Metro Louisville. Scherer, who both lives and works Downtown, has been a force in its redevelopment for 40 years, the LDP said at the event. Likewise, the LDP said Duncan has been involved with nearly every Downtown project for two decades, both in her Facilities role the past two years and as director of PARC, the city’s parking authority.
