The Cherokee Triangle Association
is accepting 2014 Trustee Applications through April, 30 2014.

2014 Trustee Application Form

Six trustee seats are elected to the Board of the Cherokee Triangle Association (CTA) each year. Each board member shall serve a 3-year term. You must be a current or Lifetime dues paying member of the CTA to be eligible.

Basic Board Responsibilities

Board meetings are held at the library in the Mid City Mall at 7:00 p.m. on the third of each month except July and December. Trustees are encouraged to attend all meetings, if at all possible. Should a Trustee need to miss a meeting, notification to the secretary should be made as soon as possible. Three consecutive unexcused absences warrant dismissal from the Board.

Trustees are expected to serve on at least one committee and are encouraged to chair one. Trustees are expected to participate in events such as the Cherokee Triangle Art Fair, Annual Cocktail Party, and Potluck Dinner.

Election Process

If there are more applications than open seats, applicants will be listed on a ballot that will be mailed to each dues-paying association member. One ballot per household should be returned to the CTA office at PO Box 4306, Louisville, KY 40204 or will also be received at the annual meeting where the counting of the ballots will take place. Votes submitted by FAX are not be valid. The annual meeting will be held at the Highlands – Shelby Park Branch Library at the Mid City Mall at the regular May CTA meeting starting at 7:00 p.m. Newly elected Board members will be notified by the CTA Nominating Committee and are expected to attend the next meeting.

This Saturday is our regularly scheduled Adopt-A-Park day in Willow Park from 9:00 a.m. – Noon (earlier if we finish our projects.)

It is particularly important because it is when we clean up the park and parkway for the art fair. So we need as many hands as we can get.

Projects include:

  • Walk the parkway and grass medians to pick up trash, limbs sticks, etc.
  • Mulch around the gazebo and and area around the marquee
  • Rake and “fluff up” mulch around the trees
  • remove leaves trash from storm drains & gutters
  • Clean up trash leaves in the tot lot

Please bring your rakes and favorite garden tools. I will provide gloves, trash bags, coffee, donuts and bottled water.


Go Green in Your Old Home!

Louisville, KY 40202

“They don’t build them like they used to.”

No, they don’t. And if you live in a home built before 1950, it is critical that you take that little saying to heart.

Led by architect Gary Kleier, this workshop will explore components of a historic home and highlight how preservation can be the ultimate in “green” living. With 33 years of experience, and specialties in historic renovation, restoration and applying green concepts in historic structures, Kleier is sure to help those dealing with rehabilitation issues in a historic home who are interested in achieving environmentally friendly results in the most cost efficient manner.

Hands on History for April will explore the concept of “Green”; how to make it work in the older home; and why so much of what is presented to us today does not work. Join us for three hours of solid information on “Greening” your home while saving you money in the process.

Workshop: $30
Preservation Louisville Members: $20
