Hey folks, this is Laura Ellis inviting you to join us for a live broadcast of State of Affairs focusing on West Louisville, as part of our Next Louisville initiative. We’re on 4th Street between Broadway & Chestnut, next to the Louisville Palace. We’ll take questions and comments from our studio audience, calls from listeners at home, and hear from our panel members, listed below. Doors open at 12:30.

We hear a lot about downtown development. There always seems to be something happening in the East End of town. So that’s two areas that seem to be poised for growth as Louisville moves forward, but what about the West End of town? It’s one of the oldest areas of town, and current residents might say one of the most overlooked. There are businesses, schools, families, new homes, old homes, pretty much the same things you find in every neighborhood. But, like other areas, West Louisville has its challenges as well. Do you live in West Louisville? If so, what do you think it needs to move forward? How can West Louisville become a bigger player in the Metro?
