With the help of AARP Community Challenge grants, three Kentucky regions are making improvements to their infrastructure this fall. 

In Louisville, Livable Woodlawn will enhance public space at the alley on Woodlawn Avenue through better lighting, a new mural, pedestrian pathways and greenery.

Also in Louisville, a bus stop at the ElderServe senior center at the corner of 28th and Magazine streets will be improved with a bus shelter, bench and lighting. 

In Harrodsburg, a grant will help Broadway Neighborhood Watch beautify the state’s oldest street, West Broadway, with new planters, trees and signs. 

The Community Challenge grants are part of AARP’s Livable Communities initiative, which promotes walkable streets, robust housing and transportation options, easy access to services and opportunities for residents to participate in life in their neighborhood.
