Luke Schmidt, President of L.B. Schmidt & Associates, LLC, has joined the Steering Committee of the Parklands of Floyds Fork.
The Parklands of Floyds Fork (http://theparklands.org/) is one of the five largest parks projects currently under development in North America. When fully completed in 2015, the Parklands will consist of a 4,000 acre linear system of four major parks in Louisville. The professionally planned system will provide a unique “urban edge” along the eastern border of Jefferson County.
The parks will feature world-class hiking, biking and paddling trails along one of the most beautiful streams in the Bluegrass State. Within the park system, approximately 28 miles of biking trails will link to the Louisville Loop – a 100 mile bike trail which when completed will completely encircle Louisville Metro and will place Louisville among the three largest biking communities in the U.S., after Seattle and Denver. The system will offer complete outdoor and educational facilities.
As a member of the Steering Committee, Luke Schmidt will assist with fundraising. The project has a total fundraising goal of $113 million, of which, over $102 million has been raised to date. In addition to serving on the Steering Committee, Luke Schmidt is also serving as an advocate for the Parklands of Floyds Fork and is taking the story of the project to community leadership groups in the outlying Kentucky counties of Hardin, Meade, Nelson and Oldham.
