Public Workshops Coming For Paristown Pointe

Jacob Ryan

Paristown Pointe’s future will be the topic of discussion at a series of neighborhood meetings next week.

Three workshops will be held for the public to weigh in on the future of the neighborhood, which is facing a pair of major projects. The area is bounded by East Broadway, Barret Avenue, Breckinridge Street and Swan Street.

On the docket will be the future of the former Urban Government Center at 810 Barret Ave. That building was recently vacated by city workers after mold and other decay were found there. 

The public will be asked to consider issues such as transportation, health and energy efficiency. The meetings will also include presentations and tours of the former government center.

A new, $28 million arts and culture hub will also be up for discussion. The proposed district, which includes the Louisville Stoneware property, is expected to include a performance space, brewery, public art, housing and commercial space. The Kentucky Center and Goodwood Brewing Company are partners in the venture.

The project, established by a group called the Paristown Pointe Preservation Trust, was announced in October 2015. State officials have said it would draw as many as 250,000 visitors a year.

Here's the public meeting schedule:

Monday, Aug. 22 6-8 p.m.

Tuesday, Aug. 23 6-8 p.m.

Saturday, Aug. 27 10 a.m.-Noon
