Let us know about your ideas for strengthening the 4th Street Corridor

As a resident in the area, I’ve seen the effects of persistent decline in- and around the corridor. It’s inspiring to see that people are thinking about ways to bring life and energy back to the area, and have come up with realistic, completely do-able practices that Louisville can use to turn this eclectic, historic neighborhood into a vibrant, healthy, exciting place to live, work, and hang out. My idea would be to expand and encourage mixed-use development, combining street-level local business development with multifamily units, to connect the neighborhood with the local economy. There are several underutilized corners throughout the corridor that could be targeted, and with neighborhood input, I think that these developments could easily be commercially viable.

Any idea which 4th street corridor neighborhood might benefit the most or which one should initiate the test project?

Great website and love the combination of ‘stuff we can do today’ and ‘pie in the sky’ ideas. One thing that I might have missed were other recreational facilities that could be offered such as basketball courts and handball courts – more physical activities for adults to do. Just a few ideas to weave into some other existing ones.
Great job everyone! Very impressive!

I really liked lots of the ideas, such as the don’t drive day, a food truck park, an up-cycled retail and restaurant area, green roofs, and the shipping container homes. The one thing that I think that it is missing though is a streetcar route. I have made a website advocating for rail transit to come to Louisville because I think that a Louisville can support a streetcar route, and that one would help Louisville.
