Louisville Loop Public Meeting, November 13th
Friday October 19, 2012
Louisville Metro Parks invites the public to participate in master planning of the Fairdale to Floyds Fork Shared-Use Path and Ecological Restoration Plan for the Louisville Loop, Tuesday, November 13, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Okolona Christian Church, 10801 Faithful Way, Louisville KY.
The purpose of this public meeting is to seek public input on this project. There will be a presentation of three preliminary alternative alignments of the Louisville Loop shared-use path, in the corridor from Fairdale to Bardstown Road near Floyds Fork. Alternatives for soft-surface trails will also be presented, as well as potential ecological restoration opportunities in the watersheds found in this study area.
Information gathered at this meeting will influence the next step of the planning process which is identification of a preliminary recommended alignment and associated ecological restoration opportunities.
This is the third of four public meetings for the project, which will ultimately result in a recommended alignment for the Louisville Loop from Fairdale to Floyds Fork near Bardstown Road. Gaining public input is a critical step in analyzing the potential locations of the shared-use path.
The meeting will begin with an Open House from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., followed by the project presentation from 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and concluding with additional Open House and discussion from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
About the Louisville Loop:
When complete, the Louisville Loop will be a 100-mile shared-use path encircling Louisville, linking existing and new parks and neighborhoods to civic, business, retail and recreational attractions, while promoting healthier lifestyles by providing safe and accessible opportunities for walking, jogging, cycling and, in some areas, horseback riding.
