A BIG project the LBA has been work on is to have a park and meeting place for the community.
The property is at 36th and Doyle Venable Drive just off the I-40 Exit. It will have a quarter mile walking track, pavilions, and play area.
For the past year, a planning process has been focusing on the Levy and Park Hill neighborhoods. If successful, the end result will likely be increased economic activity and increased property values in the town centers. Funded through Metroplan (the Metropolitan Planning Organization) and the City, a consultant has lead the community through a visioning process to devise a design guideline and form-based code overlay as an amendment to the Zoning Ordinance. This funding came from federal agencies encouraging urban areas to consider how zoning and development regulations can make special places in our community more enjoyable for our citizens. This effort was brought about by the recognition that our society is automobile dependent and our lifestyles are hurting community health. Increased density of core areas will increase walking in those neighborhoods and help improve community health. The goal is to encourage redevelopment of those areas as places to live, work, and play in a compact urban setting.
