The Bardstown Main Street Program is inviting the public to a community hearing 6-8 p.m. Feb. 28 at the Old Stables. The streetscape design will address aesthetic concerns of the downtown district, such as uniform pavement for all sidewalks, consistent street lighting and unified site furnishings (benches, trash/ash receptacles, bicycle racks, etc.

The historical nature of the area will be restored and

enhanced through an approach sensitive to Bardstown’s heritage. The Design Team will also look at solutions that will improve pedestrian safety by reducing vehicular/pedestrian conflicts. Some of the items that will be considered are traffic-calming techniques, reducing the length of the crosswalk areas, and providing a larger buff area between sidewalks and streets.

Bardstown Main Street was awarded $145,000 through the Renaissance on Main Program that will fund this streetscape plan.
