Program helps to make vacant homes safer for community | Community Spirit
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Vacant homes can be found across Louisville and making sure those homes are safe is a top priority.
Lead dust from the deterioration of paint can become an invisible neurotoxin that can be dangerous and create learning disorders in children.
Councilwoman Attica Scott has partnered with the Network Center for Community Change to start a new program call LockUpLead.
The program has selected 50 vacant properties in District 1 to be treated.
"As we address the problem of vacant properties, we must be sure that those homes which can be occupied in the future are safe for a family," said Scott.
If you would like more information or to help out with the program, contact Councilwoman Scott's office at (502) 574-1101.
