What's This?

By all accounts, CycLOUvia Three Points and the Better Block Shelby Park project were a big hit this weekend. A huge congratulations to all those who helped organize, plan, set up, vend, or otherwise participated in a great weekend of Tactical Urbanism in Louisville! To name a few, good work Center for Neighborhoods (CFN), Louisville Forward, Shelby Park Neighborhood Association, and the local businesses of Shelby Park, Germantown, and Schnitzelburg.

It’s worth taking one more look back at the two events to help remember that this process is just starting. Now that we’ve had some inspiration for better streets, it’s time to get out there and make it happen for real. Here are 24 of our favorite photos culled from Metro Louisville, project organizers and supporters, and Broken Sidewalk readers.

A couple other notable highlights include a fat-tire bike with a serious sound system (video here or here) and attendance of not just one mayor, but both Greg Fischer and former Mayor Jerry Abramson.

While CycLOUvia will be back a couple more times this summer, this iteration’s cooperation with Better Block made for something really special. I’m sure CFN will be working to make the most of the event in coming months, and we already know Shelby Park is on the lookout for improving its streets. We hope this is only the beginning of more great things to come for the Goss Avenue / Logan Street / Shelby Street corridors and beyond!

  1. Louisville Forward and the Shelby Park Neighborhood Association and other volunteers put a lot of work into this event, but really the people at the Center for Neighborhoods were the driving force. So nice to see that much energy on Logan Street.

    Still, a bigger win will be to make Logan a two-way street again.

  2. Apparently one TARC driver didn’t know about the street closure Saturday morning and got a bus stuck in the alley trying to get to Shelby St. instead of the another alley next to the tracks where it should have been going.

  3. As a board member of SPNA, I’m very proud of what our association and partners are putting together in our neighborhood and how we’ve been able to partner with others outside of our neighborhood as well. So many great things to come!
