Artist District - Paducah, Kentucky

Paducah, Kentucky Site Visit

Michelle and Joe Richey and Craig Hullinger visited the Paducah, Kentucky Arts District, and met with planners and administrators of their Artist Relocation Program. The City looked great, and showcased their efforts very well. The program is very successful.

As you can see from the following pictures, Paducah is very different then Peoria. Both are River Cities, but the City, region, and central business district are much smaller than Peoria. The Arts District is primarily single family homes, and is easy walking distance from the downtown.
