Dreaming New Dreams: Johnetta Roberts on the Opportunities and Challenges of Community Development

Johnetta Roberts specializes in community project development and asset-building initiatives in West Louisville, an historically underserved area of the city. Johnetta played a key role in the creation of the new Village @ West Jefferson real estate development project and is committed to revitalizing West Louisville, from real estate development to fostering the growth of small businesses that provide essential community services. In this podcast, recorded from a live Earth & Spirit Center Community Conversation event, we explore a vision of an empowered, thriving West Louisville – and how all of us can participate to help such a vision become reality, whether in West Louisville or in other urban areas that face socio-economic challenges.
