Southwest Louisville business leaders work to improve area's image

Local business leaders have not given up the effort to attract a major chain to Southwest Jefferson County.

Robert Price is working to improve the area's image.  He has helped to organize the Southwest Dream Team.  It's a group made up of area business owners and area residents.

One of the most visible problems is the blighted shopping area next to the Watterson on Dixie Highway.  The area has been vacant since Dilliards closed more than a year ago.  Norton Healthcare is preparing to open an outpatient facility in the location.

Price's group hopes to announce improvements to the area around the Watterson and Dixie, which he says is the gateway to the area.  He is a lifelong resident and business owner in Southwest Jefferson County.  Price believes negative perceptions about the area can be changed.
