Help rethink transportation at Connecting Kentuckiana. (Branden Klayko)

There’s still time to help shape the Metropolitan Transportation Plan called Connecting Kentuckiana which has been undergoing a series of public meetings. There are several more meetings this week, including one this afternoon at 5:30 at the Bon Air Branch Library. It’s crucial that we get this plan right as it will help shape the Louisville region for the next 25 years and describes how federal funds will be distributed to projects across the city. That includes sidewalks, streets, bike lanes, transit, and more.

The plan is being developed by KIPDA, Louisville’s metropolitan planning organization covering a five-county region around Louisville. Stop by one of the final public meetings over the next week and fill out KIPDA’s online questionnaire to help keep Louisville moving in the right direction. What would you like to see included in the plan?

June 18 – Bon Air Branch Library (2816 Del Rio Place), 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

June 19 – Fern Creek Branch Library  (6786 Bardstown Road), 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

June 21 – Clarksville Town Hall (2000 Broadway, Clarksville), 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

June 25 –  Crescent Hill Branch Library  (2762 Frankfort Avenue), 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

June 28 – Ken Ellis Community Center (21425 Pennsylvania Avenue, Jeffersonville), 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

  1. Let’s see…can’t seem to get new bridges built. Light-rail has already been taken off the table. We keep getting bike lanes on roads that no one seems to use (and with the way people drive I certainly wouldn’t feel safe in one myself). I don’t know exactly what it is they want the people to tell them. I’m still waiting for the Bardstown Road section of the ‘Louisville Loop’ by the way. Local government is killing transportation and the infrastructure in general. Maybe they need to hire (waste more money on) a few more consultants from California to tell them what to do.

  2. I forgot to mention the slow death of TARC. Oh, and let’s send more kids to schools all the away across the county. THAT helps the transportation like nothing else.

  3. My wife and I visited Portland, Oregon back in April. Now that is mass transit! Every time I think about the differences between there and here it makes me laugh. Actually, every time I think about living in Louisville I laugh. Really I cry.

  4. It seems that all the meetings are being held East of I-65 when the majority of the mass transportation riders are on the West side of I-65 at least for the municiple bus transportation. This looks to be leaving out the people it will affect the most, whats up?
