Louisville Metro Holds Preston Corridor Plan Public Engagement Day June 23


The 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 to review draft concepts developed from community feedback.

When completed, the Preston Corridor Plan will be a visionary plan that will prioritize transport, land use and economic development for one of the city’s longest routes, stretching from downtown River Road at the southern edge of Jefferson County. The plan will encompass the CHASE principles (connected, healthy, authentic, sustainable and equitable) set out in the overall city plan.

Planning and engineering firm WSP is the lead consultant on the project and is working in partnership with the Office of Advanced Planning and Sustainability. The planning process, which began in August 2021, included several contextual events across the corridor where community members could provide 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 feedback and present draft concepts for the Preston Corridor at locations and following hours. Residents, business owners and others are encouraged to pull over.

  • 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.: Norton Health Campus, corner of East Chestnut and South Preston streets
  • 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.: Lynnview Mall, 5005 Preston Highway
  • 5-7:30 p.m.: South Central Regional Library, 7300 Jefferson Blvd.
