Open House on Walkability Reports Set For Tomorrow

An open house tomorrow will be the first chance for the public to see the results of walkability studies conducted by the health department in three Louisville neighborhoods.

Parks department spokesperson Jason Cissell says the studies of Chickasaw, Portland and Smoketown are still open to input from the public.

“So it’s an opportunity to not only see the study, see the recommendations, but also continue to provide feedback,” says Cissell, “which will be helpful, not only for those studies, but the city is planning to do more studies in the future and the more we know about how people react to those, the better we can manage those projects in the future.”

Cissell says there will also be information at the open house about the Louisville Loop – the plan to create over 100 miles of walking and bicycling paths around the city.

The open house is set for tomorrow afternoon from three to seven at the Shawnee Golf Course clubhouse.
