A new affordable housing project is proposed for a historic downtown church, and the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG) wants your input.

The building at 530 N. Martin Luther King Blvd. was previously home of New Day Community Church, but the team behind Qureshi Development Group wants to transform the space into affordable multi-family units.

Here are a few key takeaways from the potential new space:

The space falls under the Federal Section 106 Review Process, which helps preserve historical buildings during project planning processes.

The proposal can be viewed at LFUCG’s building on 200 E. Main St. The public can provide feedback through the online comment form or by emailing Celia Moore by Friday, Jan. 26.
