City seeks additional community input for Bowman area plan

August 22, 2019

Louisville Metro Government, through the Office of Advanced Planning & Sustainability, is developing a neighborhood plan for the Bowman area. An open house will be held to share how development of the plan is progressing with residents on Saturday, Aug. 24, from 10 a.m. to noon at the historic Bowman Field Administration Building, 2817 Taylorsville Road.

The Bowman Area Neighborhoods Plan includes the Seneca Vista, Bowman, Park Hills, Hawthorne, and Big Spring Gardens neighborhoods, as well as the cities of Kingsley, Seneca Gardens, Strathmoor Village, and Wellington. This plan creates a “roadmap” for the future by addressing the needs and goals of this diverse community.

Local landscape architecture, planning, and urban design firm Rundell Ernstberger Associates has been retained to provide facilitation and technical guidance in this process.

This plan will address multiple topics, including but not limited to:

  • The influence of Bowman Field on the area
  • Taylorsville Road and other significant corridors, including Cannons Lane and Dutchmans Lane
  • Zoning and form districts
  • Access and relationship of the area to Seneca Park and Cherokee Park

This open house follows a three-day community workshop held in May, in which community input was gathered.
