Planning for GA 2013: plenty of parking!

Just read this post at a Louisville, Ky. urbanism blog (Broken Sidewalks) that’ll I’ll keep in mind when I plan for the 2013 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association.

There is an extraordinary amount of parking downtown — and so much of it in surface lots — and that means reduced amenities and a streetscape hostile to pedestrians. Or put another way, how far will attendees have to go to get a meal? Will you want to walk from a late-night event to non-adjacent hotel?

Please refer to that map, or a satellite view of downtown Louisville. The convention center is the double-square gray rectangle near the river. That shows two axes — south on 4th Street and west on Jefferson — for non-parking-lots.

Let’s hope one or both offers a cup of coffee on Sunday.

  1. I visited Woodford Reserve distillery, with a group of theological librarians. (The mind boggles! You should see us pack down the bourbon, though…)
