The community of Paducah is invited to a virtual listening meeting regarding the City Block Project on Monday, November 9 at 5 pm. The public space at the foot of Broadway is being sought after by a private investment firm, Weyland Ventures, to the tune of $21 million dollars. The project includes multi-use development that's bounded by Broadway, 2nd Street, Jefferson Street, and Water Street. The center of the project's design would resemble a Town Square including off-street public parking, green space, and a promenade. A boutique hotel is also planned in the mixed-use space and would face Jefferson Street.
Paducah Main Street Director Katie Axt said, “The design team at Weyland Ventures is working to gather input and feedback on how the community would like to see this public space activated. During this listening session, the team will be asking questions and guiding discussions to learn more about how the public will use and enjoy this Town Square.”
If you're interested in participating, you may do so virtually November 9, at 5 pm. It's a listening session on the Town Square portion of the City Block project. Be sure and request to participate by email to Axt by noon on Monday. Axt email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the email is received, you'll get link for the virtual session. The session will be recorded. The public may submit comments on the Town Square to the same email address through November 16.
