February’s Move Louisville workshops, presented by Louisville Metro, will focus on west and south Louisville.

On Feb. 10-13, residents and businesses in these parts of town will have the opportunity to meet with engineers and designers to talk about ideas to increase mobility and connectivity in their neighborhoods, in respect to the forthcoming Move Louisville transportation plan.

move_louisville_3The 30-year plan’s goal is to work with partner agencies such as TARC, Vision Louisville and others to improve the city’s transportation options, better connecting Louisvillians with the city. It is being funded in part by a $750,000 federal grant, along with city funds and a grant from TARC.

Here are details for this month’s workshops:

Monday, Feb. 10, 6 p.m., Southwest Government Center, 7219 Dixie Hwy. In this workshop, Paul Moore of Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates, which is leading the team of Move Louisville planners, will give a presentation summarizing the project’s goals and findings so far. This will be followed by a public question and answer forum.

Tuesday through Thursday, Feb. 11-13, at TARC Headquarters, 1000 West Broadway. These sessions will be open workshops wherein residents can observe, ask questions and share ideas with the designers, technical experts and other attendees. These workshops are from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, and 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on Thursday.

Thursday, Feb. 13, at 6 p.m., at TARC Headquarters, 1000 West Broadway.
