Demolition to begin at Sheppard Square

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Demolition is expected to begin Friday on the Sheppard Square Housing Project in Smoketown.

A $20 million Hope Six Grant will pay for the buildings, which were built in the 30's, to be torn down.

Thursday the Louisville Fire Department and Jefferson County Sheriff's Offices held training exercises at the complex.

The demolition will make way for a mixed income community with shops and restaurants.
