Friday November 26, 2010
For Immediate Release:
Louisville Metro Council
Contact: Tony Hyatt 574=4137/526-3622
Councilman Rick Blackwell (D-12) and Councilwoman Mary C. Woolridge (D-3) will host a public hearing on the Dixie Corridor project at the Southwest Government Center on Tuesday, December 7th at 7pm.
Joining the Council Members at this hearing will be Councilman-elect David Yates (D-25) and Mayor-elect Greg Fischer.
“Dixie Highway has long been in need of a makeover,” says Blackwell. . “This is an exciting project for the entire community and we couldn’t be happier that the Mayor-Elect has taken such an interest in it.”
The Dixie Highway Project is a study on the Dixie Highway Corridor that integrates land-use, transportation, economic development, and environmental concerns. The goal is to develop a unifying but distinct character for the corridor. The plan will promote the pedestrian environment and promote the strategic economic development goals for the community.
“There have been previous attempts at a project such as this,” says Blackwell. “The difference now seems to be that all the key players are involved. And the residents of Southwest Louisville are certainly the most important key players.”
The Southwest Government Center is located at 7219 Dixie Highway.
