Louisville – People who live, work or worship in the historic Parkland neighborhood are invited to a community meeting next week to give their thoughts on what is needed to restore the area to its traditional civic and commercial hub.
“Parkland is on the move as far as civic engagement and community involvement and we continue to need people to help in mapping out an economic development plan for the future,” says Councilwoman Attica Scott (D-1).
The Councilwoman and the Louisville Metro Economic Growth and Innovation Department will host a public meeting on Tuesday, April 30th to discuss the Parkland Corridor Improvement Study. It is a meeting and input session to be held at Maupin Elementary School from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. The school is located at 1312 Catalpa Street.
Planners would like to hear input and advice from residents, businesses and people who worship in Parkland on how to improve the neighborhood, specifically the town center area.
“The recent turnout of volunteers for the beginning of our Community Garden shows that folks are interested in seeing Parkland thrive as a neighborhood,” says Scott. “Here is another opportunity to show your support. We want people from different walks of life involved as we plan for the future.”
