Louisville, KY., – In late August, residents and stakeholders of the neighborhoods surrounding the Urban Government Center attended a series of workshops hosted by Develop Louisville’s Office of Advanced Planning designed to gather community input on the proposed redevelopment of the Urban Government Center. Attendees offered suggestions on possible reuses of the 12-acre campus, which includes several buildings located at and around 810 Barret Avenue and a parking lot at 814 Vine Street.
Louisville Metro Government has been relocating the occupants of the Urban Government Center, and the remaining occupants will vacate the space by the end of the year. The buildings are in need of substantial repair and are larger than required for Louisville Metro Government’s needs. In the coming months, Louisville Metro Government will solicit proposals for the redevelopment of the Urban Government Center campus, which is a prominent part of the Paristown Pointe neighborhood.
Develop Louisville will conduct three follow up meetings to present the information gathered during the August workshops. Students from the University of Kentucky School of Architecture will present visual representations of community priorities expressed during the workshops, and additional community feedback will be collected to inform the redevelopment process.
Citizens are encouraged to attend one or more of the three upcoming meetings, which will take place on:
Tuesday, October 18, 6 pm – 8 pm
Saturday, October 22, 10 am – 12 pm
Monday, October 24, 6 pm – 8 pm
All meetings will be held at 810 Barret Avenue in the first floor conference room.
