The Bluegrass Corridors Task Force has determined that a planning handbook would be the most effective means of addressing the mobility and livability concerns facing the region and achieving the Bluegrass Regional Vision, developed by Bluegrass Tomorrow in 1993 through a broad-based community planning process.
