Community input requested for future of Parkland Grocery Store property

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Local residents have been invited to help decide the future of a building in west Louisville.

A meeting was held Monday night to get input on what community members think should go in the old Parkland Grocery Store property at 28th Street and Virginia Avenue.

The city announced back in May that it bought the property with the hope of using it to enhance economic development in the area. The building has been vacant for more than a decade.

"We're here just to try and figure out ... what do the people want?" Metro Councilwoman Jessica Green said. "We want to hear, we want to know, so that we will know what are the next steps to go into.

"The idea that something fresh and new and something that would breathe fresh life into this neighborhood again is something that people are very, very excited about."

The city has no set plans for the building yet. Monday's meeting was just the first of several public input meetings.
