The first initiative to be borne out of Vision Louisville, is Move Louisville, work on Louisville's long-term strategic transportation planning.
A contest to energize a neighborhood. Louisville Metro, the SoBro Association and Vision Louisville are seeking creative designs for four intersections along the 4th Street corridor (Broadway, York, Breckinridge and Kentucky). Entries are due on August 22, 2014. The crosswalks will be painted during a community event on September 14, 2014. Click here for full contest details and rules.
Another project that was suggested and recently launched from Vision Louisville is Louisville's Cultural Pass. The passes are the result of a joint initiative to promote art and cultural education in Louisville and prevent summer learning loss. The pass allows children (ages 0 through college) from Louisville free access to an array of attractions including the Kentucky Derby Museum and the Bernheim Arboretum, among others. If the pass holder is under the age of 16, one parent or guardian is also permitted free entry.
The pass is valid through August 13, 2014. Click here for Frequently Asked Questions.
