After a strong public turnout in July, the next phase of development for the New Cut Road/Taylor Boulevard Corridor involves a special Community Workshop on Saturday, September 10, from 9am – noon at Lynnhurst United Church of Christ, 4401 Taylor Boulevard, where residents will work in groups to discuss their plans for the corridor.
“I am so excited about the enthusiasm the public is showing to help us develop a strong future for this important corridor” says Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13). “We had good representation from the entire corridor at the last public meeting and their input was invaluable.”
Welch is joined by council members Marianne Butler (D-15), Dan Johnson (D-21) and David Yates (D-25) in this community development initiative to improve the New Cut Road/Taylor Boulevard corridor in South Louisville.
“This workshop starts the details wanted by the public as this project moves forward,” says Butler. “The key is public input on priorities for making improvements.”
“The future is at hand,” says Johnson. “This is a chance to make sure this corridor is developed with the community in mind.”
“South Louisville is moving forward in many areas,” says Yates. “We need to make sure our transportation and quality of life needs are meeting with the needs of the people who live, work, and travel along this busy corridor. I want to hear from as many of our constituents as possible.”
This project is funded in part with assistance from the City Solutions Center, an initiative of the University of Louisville and the Kentucky League of Cities. The Community Design Workshop will be engaging for all ages and Metro Council members will provide refreshments.
