Design of new sidewalks for the Southland Drive corridor is underway. This project is long overdue and will allow neighbors and visitors to safely walk to destinations on Southland Drive. The construction of the sidewalks is funded and is expected to begin in 2017.
In addition, we are working with the University of Kentucky’s Interior Design, Historic Preservation, and Landscape Architecture students to explore the history of and design solutions to retrofitting the suburban strip mall. This will explore how best to enhance the characteristics of a retro strip center and will recommend light and affordable design solutions to retrofit the existing built environment.
As part of both of these projects we want your feedback about how you feel about Southland Dr, how you use the corridor, and the type of improvements you are looking for. We will use this information to figure how to best design solutions for Southland Drive.
