Brownsboro Road Diet goes to Metro Council

Thursday, May 19th at 2:00 pm in Metro Council Chambers, a metro council subcomittee will examine the Brownsboro Road Sidewalk and Road Diet. If it is passed, and if the Mayor's budget address does not interfere, then it should be on the full Metro Council agenda on Thursday, May 26th at 6:00 pm. Both events held in Old City Hall.

The neighborhood organizations are asking for people to come out and show support. However, the only opportunity to speak will be at the full metro council meeting on the 26th, which you must call ahead to request. We'll see about getting signs again, so you can show your support without speaking.

Note: this is an update to a previous post.

A Neighborhood Greenway for Old Louisville?

What about building one of these connecting UofL to the medical center?

Writes Justin Mog:

UofL is working with Bike Louisville and area neighborhood groups to create an on-street bike facility northbound from Cardinal Blvd providing safe, (s)low-traffic connectivity with our Health Sciences Center downtown. We think this is an ideal test-case for Louisville's first dedicated Bike Boulevard with limited, local-access-only auto traffic. Come share your ideas about how this could work!

When: Thursday, April 21, 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Where: Central Park Info Center

Support the Brownsboro Road Diet!!!

A Critical Hour for Louisville

Will we have a city forever wishing its streets were superhighways, or built for people too? Tuesday, you get to decide.

For thirty years, residents of Clifton and Clifton Heights have had no way to walk along the north side of Brownsboro Road. The road abuts an overgrown cliff face, that makes it impossible to access the traffic light for safe crossing. After over a decade of tireless work by the Clifton Community Council, Clifton Heights Community Council, and the blind community, there is a chance to finally make this right: a "road diet" for Brownsboro Road, removing a vehicle lane and rebuilding it as a sidewalk. This is not considered a radical idea in most cities, but it will be a very big deal in Louisville.

How do you like your two lane streets?
