Work on the Bonnycastle Homestead Association/Cherokee Triangle Association joint neighborhood plan is continuing, despite the coronavirus. Below is a draft of the vision statement. Feedback is welcome! bonnycastlehomestead@gmail.com

Cherokee Triangle and Bonnycastle, situated between Cherokee Park and the vital Bardstown Road and Baxter Avenue corridors, are desirable areas with tree-lined streets and an eclectic mix of architectural styles. Both represent unique and livable urban edge neighborhoods that maintain a healthy mix of residential and commercial activity. The National Register-listed Cherokee Triangle Historic District is also distinguished as a local preservation district by the Landmarks Commission. The Bonnycastle neighborhood, part of the Highlands National Register Historic District, maintains its historic assets while it adapts to the lifestyles of new generations. Both neighborhoods originated as streetcar suburbs, and they continue to value the preservation of their historic urban design. This plan builds upon a long and rich history and seeks to ensure that these neighborhoods remain safe and walkable and that they continue to sustain a diverse and inclusive community.
