Award will Enhance Outdoor Experience in West Louisville

The $25k “Spotlight Award” recognizes an outstanding Louisville initiative

By Mike Hall, Broker/Agent/Owner

Residents in West Louisville will benefit from the outdoor experience.

There are even more reasons to love our town. This month, Louisville was one of 10 cities awarded a “Spotlight Award” recognition and $25,000 prize.

The award comes from the Aetna foundation, which contributed to an initiative called the “Healthy Cities and Counties Challenge.”  Louisville was selected because of a program called, “The West Louisville Outdoor Recreation Initiative.”

As part of this program, residents in lower-income areas can use nature as a way to enhance their physical and mental health, while reducing stress and discouraging crime. This program is already making a big impact in West Louisville, and the $25,000 award will go a long way in improving the outdoor experience for countless Louisville residents.

Louisville Will Have a Year-Round Public Market

The Logan Street Market will open in Louisville's Shelby Park by Summer

By Mike Hall, Broker/Agent/Owner

The Logan Street Market will provide local venders with an opportunity sell fresh foods.

Some ideas meet a tangible need while providing a noteworthy site for tourists and curious visitors.

That’s what the proposed Logan Street Market might do for the area of Shelby Park. The owners, Mike and Medora Safai are hoping to open the year-round, covered market on the corner of Logan and Kentucky streets, in the old Axon candy and tobacco building.

The market will provide space for farmers and local artisans, as well as display kitchens for chefs and a stage. The Safais will also open Wild Hops Brewery on site, and their coffee roasting facility for Safai Coffee will be visible from the market as well.  

This could be a great opportunity for the local residents, who will benefit greatly from the available fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and cheeses as well as Kentucky-area farmers. The space will also be a major attraction for out of town guests and tourists.

This is an exciting time to invest in the area in and around Shelby Park. Talk to a Realtor today about available properties in the neighborhood, and you might just be walking down the street for fresh fruit this summer.
