Proposed KIPDA Move Draws Fire

The Kentucky-Indiana Planning and Development Agency is considering moving its headquarters, and transportation activists are speaking out against the proposed new site.KIPDA is currently located in the Bluegrass Industrial Park in Jeffersontown and is considering a move to a nearby location at Tucker Station Road and Plantside Drive.David Morse with the Coalition for the Advancement of Regional Transportation says KIPDA should look at sites closer to the city’s urban core, where it would be more accessible to many people who use its services."We've got a hub and spokes expressway system that's centered on Louisville, which means it's very efficient moving people into and out of Louisville," he says. "And they keep on putting themselves out on the rim."No one at KIPDA was available for comment Wednesday, but officials have defended the current and proposed sites as centrally located in the agency’s nine-county service area.
