Metro Parks hosting series of Public Meetings on Southwest Greenways
Friday March 18, 2011
Metro Parks is hosting a series of public meetings, beginning Monday, on a proposed new recreational trail system in southwest Louisville called the Southwest Greenways.
The Southwest Greenways plan will connect neighborhoods in the southwest to the Louisville Loop recreational trail, historic and cultural sites, parks and natural areas, schools, community facilities, and business districts, all of which increase the potential for a healthier, more active lifestyle.
The planning process will consist of Metro Parks staff working together with the public and community leaders to develop a master plan to identify existing conditions and uses; collecting information about what types of recreational and commuting opportunities people in the community want; and then combining them in a vision for a greenways system.
Metro Parks will host three public meetings within southwest Louisville. Residents are encouraged to attend the meeting located nearest to their home or place of work, but are free to attend any, or all, of the meetings. Times and locations for the meetings are as follows:
Monday, March 21st Farnsley-Moremen Visitors’ Center 6:30- 8 p.m.
7410 Moorman Road
Wed., March 23rd Iroquois Branch Library 6:30-8 p.m.
601 West Woodlawn Ave
Monday, March 28th Fairdale Playtorium 6-7:30 p.m.
10616 W. Manslick Road
