For Release: 02/06/24 1:03 PM

After years of broken promises and neglect, Louisville’s West End could be on the cusp of a renaissance. For the first time in 150 years, a hospital is coming to the neighborhood and more development is happening as well. 

On this episode of Inside Louisville, Kelsey Starks talks with Evon Smith, president and CEO of One West, a non-profit focused on commercial development growth in the West End; and also with Corenza Townsend, chief administrative officer with Norton West Louisville Hospital, scheduled to open later this year. Both women share their vision for building up the West End community.
