South Frankfort seeing revitalization

For fans of urban revitalization in historic areas, it's the perfect love story.

An impressionistic painter and her jazz musician husband left California for their native Kentucky to make a home and studio on the recently lifeless Bridge Street in Frankfort.

Three doors down, another artist is making an anticipated re-emergence to the city after time spent out of state.

In a potential turning point for the area, private funds are restoring vacant and underutilized properties in the Second Street corridor while the city awaits the final version of a plan to revitalize the area's intersections, sidewalks and community gardens.
