Public Input

Public input plays an important role in the project development process, specifically providing feedback that helps inform decision-making throughout all phases of development. As we continue planning improvements for Turkeyfoot Road, we welcome your questions and comments and will host several in-person public input opportunities.

KYTC hosted a public Open House on Dec. 3, 2019, to share information about the project and the planning process with the community, answer questions, and gather public input. Copies of materials shared at the meeting are posted on the Project Updates page.

The project team had a survey open from Nov. 12 to Dec. 19, 2019.  Be sure to subscribe to our e-newsletter to get the latest project updates.

Working Group Meetings

KYTC has partnered with local community representatives to form two Working Groups to help guide the development of improvement plans for the Turkeyfoot area. The North Working Group concentrates on the stretch of Turkeyfoot Road between I-275 and Dixie Highway and the South Working Group focuses on the area between I-275 and Dudley Road. 

 

Working Group members include local officials, local public works, and/or planning professionals, school/college and major business representatives, as well as representatives from key neighborhoods and interest groups. They will participate in reviewing and fine-tuning improvement alternatives for Turkeyfoot Road and are responsible for:

  • Representing their community/organization in discussions relating to the project; 

  • Providing updates and disseminating information to their community/organization to facilitate an exchange of information with the project team; and

  • Sharing their community’s/organization’s questions, concerns, and general feedback with the project team.
     

Each Working Group will meet two to three times. Meeting materials and summaries will be posted on this page as they come available. Recommendations stemming from these meetings will be presented to the public for review and input before any final decisions are made. Currently, it is expected that the next public meeting will be held in early 2021.
