Louisville Metro hosting Public Engagement Day for Preston Corridor Plan on June 23
Louisville Metro Government’s Office of Advanced Planning and Sustainability is hosting a Public Engagement Day on Thursday, June 23, with three opportunities for people to connect with the Preston Corridor Plan project team and review draft concepts developed from community feedback.
Once completed, the Preston Corridor Plan will be a visionary plan that prioritizes people-first transportation, land use, and economic development for one of the city’s longest roadways, which stretches from River Road downtown to the southern edge of Jefferson County. The plan will encompass the CHASE principles (Connected, Healthy, Authentic, Sustainable and Equitable) laid out in the city’s comprehensive plan.
Planning and engineering firm WSP is the lead consultant for the project and is working in partnership with the Office of Advanced Planning and Sustainability. The planning process, which kicked off in August 2021, included multiple pop-up events throughout the corridor where community members could provide their input.
During the Public Engagement Day, representatives from WSP and the Office of Advanced Planning and Sustainability will be on hand to answer questions, listen to comments, and show off the draft concepts for the Preston Corridor at the following locations and times. Residents, business owners, and others are encouraged to stop by.
- 8 to 10 a.m.: Norton Health Campus, corner of East Chestnut and South Preston streets
- 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.: Lynnview Shopping Center, 5005 Preston Highway
- 5 to 7:30 p.m.: South Central Regional Library, 7300 Jefferson Blvd.
Once the Preston Corridor Plan is complete, Louisville Metro will apply for federal and state implementation funds
