Transportation meetings continue
The Kentuckiana Regional Planning and Development Agency is working to Connect Kentuckiana as it seeks public input on the updated Metropolitan Transportation Plan, the region’s long range transportation plan.
As a part of the Connecting Kentuckiana effort, KIPDA is providing residents the opportunity to share the challenges they face every day with regard to transportation through three remaining community workshops. After the June 28 event, KIPDA will have hosted 24 workshops across the five-county region. Once the data is collected the information will be compiled and used to create a set of solutions and the public will again be provided the opportunity to give their feedback.
Meetings will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. today, June 21, at Clarksville Town Hall, 2000 Broadway; Monday, June 25 at Crescent Hill Library, 2762 Frankfort Ave., Louisville; and June 28 at Ken Ellis Community Center, 1425 Pennsylvania Ave., Jeffersonville.
