Please consider attending tomorrow’s meeting of the Downtown Development Review Overlay (DDRO) committee discussing the Omni Hotel & Residences. This is one of the most important forums in recent Louisville history in which the public can help shape the future of Downtown.
[quote_center]The Omni DDRO meeting takes place Wednesday, July 29 at 8:30a.m. at the Old Jail Building, 514 West Liberty Street. Please attend.[/quote_center]
It’s unclear at this point if the public will have another opportunity to speak at this second meeting of the DDRO—the first lasted over four hours will plenty of impassioned comment as the video above attests. Simply being present, however, will show the committee that Louisville cares about its built environment and heritage and that we want the best product possible on the Water Company Block.
Omni will be great for Louisville. Let’s just make sure it can be the a real landmark that enhances every street it touches and elevates the city overall. Your presence is critical toward achieving that.
