Louisville – It has been a busy summer for the Parkland area. A new Community Garden is up and growing. The Family Scholar House has opened its doors. And Metro Government needs input on how the Parkland area can move forward in the future economically.
Councilwoman Attica Scott (D-1) is encouraging residents of the area to attend the final community input meeting for the Parkland Corridor Improvement Study on Tuesday, August 13th.
“There are many people and organizations helping to revitalize the Parkland area, with particular leadership from the Parkland Neighborhood Improvement Association. We need to know what people believe is the best way to bring in jobs, businesses and other growth areas that will help the Parkland neighborhood to restore its historic business corridor,” says Scott.
The Councilwoman and the Louisville Metro Economic Growth and Innovation Department will host the input session at Maupin Elementary School from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. The school is located at 1312 Catalpa Street.
Planners will listen to ideas and suggestions from people who live, work and worship in the historic Parkland neighborhood.
“It is important to hear these ideas as the planners begin their work in finalizing what the area needs and where we go from here,” says Scott. “So please come out and give us your thoughts.”
