Resident PRojects

30th & Madison Street

One of the central elements of RPOP's Black wealth creation strategy involes the development of community-owned real estate assets in Russell. The Madison Street property, our first major capital project, is a site currently owned by Louisville Metro Government but committed to RPOP. Located at the intersection of 30th & Madison Street, the property spans 5 acres and is neighbored by the Louisville Urban League's Norton Healthcare Sports and Learning Complex. RPOP is working closely with Russell residents to determine the future of this shared space and our goal is to create a development featuring shared ownership and a variety of uses defined by residents. We envision the development will serve as a community asset, a catalyst for generational wealth and a model for other community projects. Together, we can make 30th & Madison a space to uplift Russell voices and facilitate the success of our community.
