like many other counties, is trying to balance the benefits of rapid
growth with the challenges it creates. New community facilities and
population growth must be balanced with maintaining the traditional
neighborhoods, rural heritage and agricultural lands.
HOW?The county has many different kinds
of neighborhoods and landscapes.
Through several workshops, the planning team explored the concerns unique to
both the rural communities such as Mortonsville, and the more urban
area in downtown Versailles. The
planning team also explored how new development can become neighborhoods that
are in keeping with the character of Woodford County.
workshops were “hands-on” table sessions where community members
had a special opportunity to share their views, as they first drew
and then presented their ideas to others. The planning team then refined the ideas from the workshops.
