Commissioners bus tour stops in on Owensboro projects


Owensboro City Commissioners hopped on a bus for an updated tour of the city's redevelopment projects on Tuesday. 

Among the stops, Smothers Park, where Parks and Recreation Manager Amanda Rogers says it will be a busy summer.

The commission also toured the Convention Center and the Mechanicsville Neighborhood project. The Mechanicsville work is being put on the fast track and it's hoped the project will be completed by the end of  the year.

"We've talked about the significant inconvenience it's going to cause are people. They really need to be patience with us because this time next year all of what we looked at today will be finished," Owensboro Mayor Ron Payne said.

The touring bus features pictures of the community and is also used for public transportation.
