There is an exception for parking on a temporary basis. Residents and their guests may park on the street up to seven times per month without the need to get a permit.

Such requests are considered automatically approved unless you hear otherwise from the commissioner for public safety. You do not need to wait for additional approval.

Please remember to keep your dogs on a leash when walking in the neighborhood. Almost all of you do this already. Leashes are required by law and also show consideration for your fellow neighbors who may be afraid of dogs.
I’ve received two complaints regarding open bonfires recently. In response, I sent a letter to the homeowner in question. Please be aware of the following:
1) Recreational fires on the ground (and not contained in an acceptable fire pit or fireplace) require a permit.
2) Although recreational fires in acceptable pits are generally allowed without a permit, state fire code requires fire pits to be located at least 50 feet from buildings, property lines, and combustible materials.
3) Fires should be no more than 3 feet wide by 3 feet long by 3 feet high.
You may use Louisville Metro’s website to report an open fire if you believe such a report is warranted:
Click on “Report Issues” and you click “Report Online Now” and there is a specific section for “Open Burn” under the Environmental Tab.
You can also dial 311 to report an open fire to Louisville Metro.

SNOW REMOVAL POLICY: Bellemeade has a contract for Bellemeade streets to be plowed when accumulation is in excess of three inches with other factors considered such as an accumulation of ice under the snow. In the latter case, removal of the snow down to the ice will make the street even more hazardous. Wood Road and Whipps Mill Roads are not maintained by Bellemeade. They are maintained by Metro or Lyndon. The Public Works Commissioner recommends if the plows need to be called in and will use his/her judgement to determine when hazardous or special circumstances exist.
