Goal of Planning and Development
Assist neighborhoods to articulate common goals and purposes and to envision places and functions that respond to resident needs and aspirations.

Cover page of the Preston Corridor Improvement Plan.  Center For Neighborhoods (formerly the Louisville Community Design Center) worked on this project in association with the Metropolitan Development Authority (MDA) and was assisted by the Preston Corridor Task Force (PCTF).  Community work sessions were held to determine the needs and opinions of neighbors and businesses regarding the enhancement & revitalization of the Preston Corridor.  The Corridor extends along Preston Highway from Eastern Parkway to the Watterson Expressway.

Planning and Development as it relates to Learning:
Research, discover, and learn -- with residents, neighborhoods and neighborhood stakeholders, students, local government and public institutions -- best practices and collaborative approaches to neighborhood and community revitalization.
