Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13) is inviting everyone to come out and share their thoughts and ideas on the proposed Fairdale Village Center Planning Project at a special community workshop on Tuesday, July 31.
“The Fairdale Village Center is a unique, vibrant, and attractive neighborhood center proposal that is both a gateway to the Jefferson Memorial Forest and a destination unto itself,” says Welch. “This workshop is a way to learn more about the project and at the same time gives the community the chance to offer their thoughts on what Fairdale should like in the future.”
The community workshop will be held at the Fairdale Branch of the Louisville Free Public Library at 10620 W. Manslick Rd. from 3:00pm to 7:00pm. This will be an open house forum with presentations on the Fairdale Village Center at 4:00pm and 6:00pm.
With the construction of the Fairdale Roundabout, Welch says this project will seek to build on the area’s momentum. It will further develop Fairdale’s unique sense of place, enhance the village center’s green space and green infrastructure, explore opportunities for economic development, and plan for upgrades to the area’s streets and sidewalks.
“The future development of Fairdale is one of my top priorities because this is home to generations of families. This project will build upon the recommendations of the 2006 Fairdale Neighborhood Plan,” says Welch. “I want the community to get involved and express their thoughts on what makes Fairdale special and how we can continue to improve the quality of life for everyone.”
This process is being managed by Louisville Metro’s Office of Advanced Planning and a team of local consultants from Taylor, Siefker, Williams Design Group. The focus area is primarily composed of the Fairdale Village Center Form District with further attention being given to the major roads leading up to the new roundabout. The project is anticipated to take about six months.
