East Market to get makeover

$10 million from state funds improvements

The streetscape along East Market Street through the emerging NuLu neighborhood is due for a major makeover, primarily with $10 million recently approved by the Kentucky legislature in the state highway budget…

The state approval of the $10 million will be announced today by Mayor Greg Fischer and downtown officials at the second annual “State of Downtown” meeting at the Galt House. The event is sponsored by the Louisville Downtown Development Corp., which serves as Fischer’s lead agency on coordinating center city projects.

Although the legislature’s approval of the $10 million was largely kept under the radar, Fischer spokesman Chris Poynter said city officials, NuLu and Phoenix Hill neighborhood leaders and representatives of Nucleus (a University of Louisville affiliate) and other special interests lobbied the General Asssembly hard for the money. “It’s pretty exciting,” Poynter said. “We are looking at a complete new streetscape for the NuLu neighborhood.”
