“GermanParistown Neighborhood Association” Coming Together

Welcome to Our Website

What's Happening-

Quick updating at October 30, 2014

Bike lanes will be reviewed via the city council over the winter months to see just how effective the changes to street patterns have been.  The anticipation are the lanes will stay as is.

The Central Railway Corridor group is moving towards final recommendations. This has been an ongoing process covering many months. Those involved include the city, contracted professionals and several local neighborhood and business reps all coming together. A slide presentation that explains the details can be found by keying in this website address: www.louisville.edu/cepm/projects/germantown.  Recommendations should be made public before the end of the year.

The third item being tracked is the MSD Basin project. Right now GPNA is involved directly in working with neighbors effected by the construction of a  staging area on 1100 block Schiller Avenue, by the creek. Another property MSD will own because is the store front building next to the creek on the northwest side. GPNA will be pushing hard for MSD to assure this becomes a neighborhood green space. Thanks to board member Bruce Ewing for taking the lead on this.

GPNA is partnering with Paristowne Pointe Neighborhood Association with the sole intent of our tracking with the city what they intend to do with the Government  Center buildings and land they apparently intend to abandon. Both associations have strong positions that the city reps need and must be available to communicate with us and that they need to welcome our input. Be on the look for updates on this issue in the future.

GPNA's next board meeting is Monday, November 17th at 6 PM.. The board meeting starts at 6 PM. The meeting will be held at our center, 1094 E. Kentucky Street. The meeting is open to the public and generally last about one hour.

Membership is Easy

Our goal is to make it easy for anyone who holds value in our efforts to join. Gaining financial support is helpful of course in off setting administrative cost. But what we really hope for is inducing residents to become active. So the annual membership fee is by donation amount of your choice including the giving of your time. To encourage membership the recommended dollar amount is kept very low at $5 per year.

Email your name, address to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Steve will enter your name and email address to the GPNA membership roster. You can provide your chosen donation by mailing it to 1094 E Kentucky Street (40204) and make the check out to GPNA.

You can also join at one of our sponsored functions including our quarterly pot luck public meetings. Please note that we will accept cash for membership when sign up is at an event, but that is the ONLY TIME. You can also choose to not mail and simply drop the check through the slot that is in the middle of our front door. Again, no cash if dropping off.  And most important please make sure the check is in a sealed envelope marked "Membership".

Keeping Compliant-

GPNA keeps on file its approval letter from the IRS. This letter stipulates that GPNA is a 501 (C4) non-profit organization. To stay in good standing we file an IRS-990 each calendar year. We also file with Kentucky to maintain legal recognition with the Commonwealth. The overall reporting to the state requires our forwarding an Annual Report and we must provide quarterly to the Department of Charitable Gaming detailed gaming activity reports.  We are required to complete annually a gaming license application.  GPNA is currently in full compliance and in good standing with the federal, state and city governments and all the reports listed have been filed on time.
