Louisville Metro Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton, D-5, is offering residents of the Shawnee neighborhood an opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas about future development at a special meeting.
For the past few years, Metro Government has conducted a study of what the west Louisville neighborhood should do to attract businesses and become more desirable. The goal is to update a neighborhood plan that will develop the area over the next two decades, which hasn’t been done since 1982.
“There has been much progress in the Shawnee area in the last few years,” says Hamilton. “The people who live in this area best know how this community should grow for the future.”
The plan has looked at vacant properties, land use, zoning regulations and crime statistics, with a particular interest in developing the west Market Street corridor. The meeting to discuss the new plan will be held September 29 at the Shawnee Golf Course Clubhouse, located at 460 Northwestern Parkway from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.
Hamilton says it is a chance to learn more about the plan while being able to offer ideas and suggestions for improvements.
“Homeowners and business people who live and work in the area will have the chance to talk with the people who are in the process of improving the Shawnee Neighborhood. It is important to hear your input,” she says.
