Are Vacant Lots in Your Community Creating an Ugly Vibe?

Old Louisville, Bruce Moore Realtor

Just about every neighborhood has them… ugly, untended, vacant lots overrun by weeds, garbage or maybe worse! What can you do about it?

How about planting sunflowers like someone did on this lot in Old Louisville! In the midst of Louisville’s oldest neighborhood – Old Louisville – are several unsightly empty lots. This particular one, however, is now overrun with beautiful, stately Sunflowers!

Old Louisville, Bruce Moore Realtor

Some other ideas to beautify your neighborhood eyesore:

-Coordinate a Community Garden Project

-Add a Playground

Obviously, you can’t do much without permission from the property owner but it never hurts to ask!

Portland: Louisville’s Next “It” Neighborhood?

Fancy a stroll? Local entrepreneur and so-called “Maestro of East Market Street” Gill Holland has turned his attention to Louisville’s Portland neighborhood, saying he envisions a “stroll district” cropping up in Portland’s future.

Holland, famous for the Green Building in NuLu, purchased a former school building in Portland in 2013 and revealed plans for a massive investment project to revitalize the historic Louisville neighborhood, saying in an interview with the Leo Magazine that, “I’ve had an interesting time explaining to investors that we’re not looking to make a quick buck, that we’re investing in the future.”

His vision is reminiscent of Bardstown Road, East Market Street, and Frankfurt Avenue: a wanderer’s paradise of shops, cafes, and small businesses.

Other local business-owners have also turned their attention to Portland and the West End, including Karter Louis, owner of Hillbilly Tea. Louis recently decided to open another location of his restaurant in Portland, citing his attachment to West Louisville as one of the reasons for his decision. “There’s an undercurrent happening there,” he said. “I’m rallying everybody. I think it can be golden.”

The home to many historic, pre-Civil War buildings, Portland hosted a thriving working class community at the turn of the 20th century, but the city’s famous 1937 flood and a second high flood in 1945 destroyed portions of the neighborhood and drove many middle class families out of the area. Today, a flood wall protects Portland and its residents from future flooding.

Home prices in Portland are currently some of the lowest in Louisville, but may be on the rise as revitalization efforts take hold. The neighborhood is home to many of the small shotgun houses for which Louisville is known.

Want to join the movement? Get in on the ground floor while home prices are still low! Call me, I’d love to help.

Let’s Celebrate the Beauty of Old Louisville

Old Louisville Real Estate, Bruce Moore, Realtor

No doubt about it, Old Louisville is one of Louisville’s most beautiful neighborhoods!  The houses are really what sets this neighborhood apart from others in the city.

Made up of mostly Brick Victorian Architecture, it is the 3rd largest Designated Historical Neighborhood in the entire United States!

Old Louisville Real Estate, Bruce Moore, Realtor

Not only that but despite its up and downs ….. the Great Flood of 37, Tornado of 74 and some history of neglect ….. most of the houses remain intact and are still in great shape.  Old Louisville is coming back from the downturn it took starting during WWI when owners started to subdivide the houses into apartments.  There are still quite a few old house/apartments but the practice has stopped and is being reversed thanks to the Old Louisville Neighborhood Association and the conversion into a Historical District.

On May 16th and 17th, Old Louisville is celebrating its neighborhood by inviting others to the
2nd Annual Old Louisville Springfest

Organizers are expecting about 7,000 people to visit the neighborhood. There will be bands, vendor booths, plenty of food and drink including the Old Louisville Slushie for adults which is a blend of bourbon, orange juice concentrate and lemonade concentrate.  Yumm!! And the newest addition to the festival is a Beer Garden!

And while you’re there, take a peek at some of the Beautiful Homes and Condos For Sale in Old Louisville!

I am very proud to be listing a beautiful House at 1208 S. 1st street and I will be holding an open house on Sunday from 2-4.

I am not going to tell you about Hand in Hand Ministries

Hand in Hand Ministries Louisville
I am not going to tell you about Hand in Hand Ministries!

A special guest post by my friend, Phaedra King

Except to say, Hand in Hand believes that all people deserve life’s essentials – food, water, clothing, shelter, education and medical care.  Their primary focus is to provide these essentials to people in Appalachia, Belize and Nicaragua.

Hand in Hand Ministries Louisville
Hand In Hand Ministries
I could talk about how HIH builds homes for families in Belize who are homeless or living in substandard conditions.  I could sing praises about their Outreach Center, which provides daycare, medical care and educational services for children marginalized by poverty and disease.  Or I could give you statistics from the many other wonderful services HIH provides in Central America.  But I won’t.I won’t go into details about the Pathway to Change program, a scholarship program which makes top-quality education available to children who might otherwise fall through the cracks in Nicaragua. Or the home repair program, food pantry, computer and GED classes offered through HIH in Appalachia.Why won’t I tell you about Hand in Hand Ministries?  I won’t tell you because, on paper, Hand in Hand sounds like a million other non-profit organizations.  My words alone will never be enough endorsement for the magnitude of benevolence Hand and Hand provides.I will, however, tell you about what sets Hand in Hand Ministries apart from other organizations.

Immersion Trips

For years, I worked at a non-profit organization which operated with a coalition of charitable organizations to pool efforts in fundraising and support.  Every year I’d watch in awe as we facilitated the transfer of millions of dollars in donations from individuals to non-profits.  Those non-profits, in turn, would use the funds to help people. At the end of the year, when all the money was counted and disbursed, I would congratulate my co-workers on a job well done.  And then, honestly, I would sit and wonder “what is actually being done with all that money? How do I know it is really helping?”

But that’s how it works, we give money to the cause of our choice and cross our fingers that the money is being put to good use.  I am in no way suggesting that it isn’t, but there is always that “how do I know” feeling after you hand over your check. Well, this is exactly what sets Hand in Hand Ministries apart.   Oh, we’ll take your money and, as a board member, I can personally guarantee that it will be put to good use!  But, you don’t have to trust me; you can see for yourself.

Hand in Hand offers immersion trips to Appalachia, Belize and Nicaragua.  You don’t have to wonder about the homes being built in Belize.   With an immersion trip, you can go to Belize and help build one of those homes.  If you are passionate about education, you can take an immersion trip to Nicaragua and meet the children in the Pathways to Change program.  Or, if you want to stay closer to home, you can take an immersion trip to Appalachia and help a family who desperately needs home repairs.

When you return home, you won’t need to congratulate yourself on a job well done, because you will have been transformed.  Both your heart and your mind will have gone through a beautiful metamorphosis, the likes of which you never believed possible.

So no, I’m not going to tell you about Hand in Hand Ministries, I’m going to invite you to come see for yourself.   Go on an immersion trip (or 2 or 3).  Change someone’s life for the better and possibly your own life in the process!  But beware; you will never look at life the same way again.
