“This meeting will be an update on where the project stands and how it will move forward in our effort to improve the southern part of Fourth Street,” says James. “The public will have an opportunity to see how their input has been reviewed to form the revitalization plan for the area.”

The project’s goal is to improve Fourth Street between Industry Road and Central Avenue based on the recommendations of the University Corridor Redevelopment Study and prior meeting of community input.
“The University Corridor is one of our oldest corridors and this plan is designed to revitalize and restore economic development to an area that once thrived,” says Butler. “As we move forward it is important that the people who live and work along this corridor have an understanding of the direction we are moving in to ensure all of Fourth Street is successful.”
For more information about the meeting, contact the Louisville Metro Office of Economic Growth and Innovation at 574-4140.
