The City was recently awarded a grant to develop a form based code overlay pilot project for Second Street. In a nutshell, this is a different type of zoning plan that is intended to encourage mixed use development, greater walkability, and a more inviting urban environment. We're putting together a citizen task force to help move the process along with maximum community input. Anyone with an interest in serving on that task force is encouraged to send an email stating your desire and any qualifications to our City Manager (Fred Goins) at FGoins@frankfort.ky.gov by July 25th.
There should be ample opportunities for anyone who is interested to voice their input on this code as it is developed. The task force is simply for people with a particular interest in this project who are willing and able to help facilitate the process.
