Mayor Fischer, the Southwest Dream Team and Metro Council members today were joined by local business owners and community members to unveil the fifth annual production of the South Points Scenic Area Map. This tourism initiative is celebrating five years of continued program growth, including a physical map, road signage program, and online presence.
This year, the South Points Scenic Area has expanded to s include the South Louisville Business Association and the Louisville Independent Business Alliance, which hosts the South Points Buy Local Fair at Iroquois Amphitheater each July. Other additions include Khalil’s on Dixie Highway, a local restaurant that has been recognized as a champion for local fundraising efforts, and the return of the South Points Farmers Market, hosted by the Food Literacy Project. The market, held at the Taylor Boulevard Save-A-Lot, brings healthy, farm-fresh produce to the region.
The Southwest Dream Team supports strategies to attract investments in quality of life infrastructure for south and southwest Louisville. “There is a great deal of positive momentum in south and southwest Louisville. From the revitalization of Colonial Gardens, to the improvements on the Dixie Highway corridor, 2019 marks a year of significant growth and achievement in the region,” Mayor Greg Fischer said.
The Southwest Dream Team is expanding its programming to include a civic leadership program, to help residents and business owners alike to connect with local resources and become more engaged in their community. The team and city leaders encourage the greater Louisville community to consider exploring this region for the diverse array of natural and cultural attractions it offers.
The robust calendar of events is family friendly, and spans from historical, cultural, to environmental offerings. (Insert quote from Vince Jarboe, Board President) We encourage you to use the South Points Scenic Area Map as a guide to curate your own experience in south Louisville.
