Description

This week on Sustainability Now!, we take a critical look at the place Forward Radio calls home: Broadway! Michael King, Director of Louisville Metro’s Office of Advanced Planning & Sustainability joins Justin Mog for a conversation about reimagining Broadway as a safer, more functional and pleasant place for everyone. Broadway All the Way is a visionary transportation planning process to re-imagine the entire corridor from Shawnee Park to Baxter Avenue prioritizing safety, mobility, accessibility and equity. Reshaping the corridor into a sustainable complete street with an emphasis on premium transit will create a vibrant public realm that stimulates economic growth, health, wellness, connection to jobs and vital services, and overall quality of life.

Metro’s team has developed a series of draft plans for the four unique sections of Broadway and seeks to better understand community priorities for Broadway, now and in the future. The public is invited to complete a 10-15 minute survey covering issues such as transit and bus stops, crosswalks, lighting, green infrastructure, sidewalks and multi-use paths, parking, and public plazas and gathering spaces. Submit your feedback for the Broadway All The Way reimaging process at http://broadwayalltheway.org

As always, our feature is followed by your community action calendar for the week, so get your calendars out and get ready to take action for sustainability NOW!

Sustainability Now! airs on Forward Radio, 106.5fm, WFMP-LP Louisville, every Monday at 6pm and repeats Tuesdays at 12am and 10am. Find us at http://forwardradio.org
