Residents of Lexington, Kentucky’s Gardenside community are proud of being one of the city’s most diverse neighborhoods, however the area was missing a true heart. Without a central civic node, residents felt disconnected. The Gardenside Neighborhood Association and Councilwoman Peggy Henson called on Gresham Smith to help identify the neighborhood’s current challenges and outline key areas for improvement. After a series of community workshops, our team identified four key areas of focus and recommended improvements, with the ultimate goal of earning grand funding for the projects.
