Metro Council President Jim King (D) 10 is encouraging the public to review and comment on a new website designed to highlight the 21st Century Parks plan of The Fork.
“This is an exciting time for Metro Louisville and now, everyone will have the chance to see how the city is moving forward with the first major new park in more than 100 years,” says King. “This website will answer all questions about 21st Century Parks and the future goals of The Fork.”
The new website, www.21cparks.org , was unveiled on Monday, February 25th by the Chairman and CEO of 21st Century Parks, Dan Jones. The Fork is the city’s latest parks project bordering on Shelbyville Road to the north and Bardstown Road to the South along Floyd’s Fork Creek. It is over 3,000 acres of land and more than 20 miles of continuous trails.
“The website will allow for public comment but I would also like the public to be aware of a key meeting to learn more about the Draft Master Plan for The Fork,” says King.
A public meeting on the Draft Master Plan will be held on Tuesday, March 4th at Christian Academy of Louisville on South English Station Road from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. The Draft Master Plan will be available on line on March 5th.
“21st Century Parks is moving forward with Metro Parks City of Parks project to ensure we maintain the uniqueness of our parks system,” says King.
