Stadium to replace Voll Field
Stadium to replace Voll Field
A proposal has been approved by the City of St. Matthews Council to allow Trinity High School Foundation, Inc. (THSF) and St. Matthews Little League to cooperatively build and maintain a modern high school baseball sports stadium at the St. Matthews Community Center Park. This project includes demolition, site work and construction of the project which will be the sole responsibility of THSF including construction management and obtaining any required permits and plan approvals.
The City of St. Matthews retains ownership of the stadium and reserved in its lease agreement to THSF the right to open the facility to City use, when not being occupied by Trinity High School or the St. Matthews Little League. The project will be completed in spring 2019.
40% Rebate on Purchase of Shade Trees
While many of us typically imagine springtime when thinking about tree planting, cold weather months are actually a great time to get a new tree in the ground! Planting a tree while it’s dormant will give it the opportunity to establish in its new home before leafing out when spring rolls around. If you’re thinking about planting a tree at home, now’s the perfect time to do it.
TreesLouisville, in partnership with the Louisville Metro Division of Community Forestry, is currently running a Tree Rebate Program as an incentive for homeowners to plant more trees. The Tree Rebate Program is open to all residents of Jefferson County. Participants can earn a rebate of 40 percent (up to $80) on the purchase of a shade tree. Rebates will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis until funds run out. For full details, visit treeslouisville.org/rebate.
