Vision Russell Choice Neighborhood Initiative

The Choice Neighborhood Initiative (CNI) is a collaborative effort to create and implement a dynamic and transformative plan for the Russell neighborhood, including the Beecher Terrace public housing development. Called Vision Russell, the initiative’s boundaries span from Market Street to Broadway, and from 9th to 32nd Streets. The planning phase of this work was funded through a $425,000 Planning grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that was awarded on January 16, 2015 and matched by a $600,000 leverage contribution from Louisville Metro Government (LMG). The first phase of revitalization to be complete in Russell in 2017 is funded by a $1,000,000 HUD Action grant with $375,000 leverage contribution from LMG, which will go towards Action Activites-physical projects that will spur additional community improvement and economic development in the neighborhood. The $29.5 million HUD Implementation grant was recently received on December 12, 2016. These funds will be used over the next 7 years for the replacement of the Beecher Terrace housing complex and critical community improvements in the Russell neighborhood.
