More than four dozen interested folks participated in the City Block Town Square Listening Session that was held November 9. The design team from Weyland Ventures Development wanted feedback on the public project elements including the parking area, the green space along Water Street, and the promenade along South 2nd Street. Visit the page to find a link to a document with thought questions and an email link to Paducah Main Street Director Katie Axt to provide your feedback. The City Block Project, a private investment of approximately $21 million in Paducah’s downtown by Weyland Ventures, includes a multi-use development on the parcel bounded by Broadway, 2nd Street, Jefferson Street, and Water Street. The center of the parcel would remain city-owned and be designed as a Town Square with public spaces. A boutique hotel is planned for the section facing Jefferson Street with a mixed-use development facing Broadway.
