Guthrie city renewal project

The city administration of Guthrie, Kentucky partnered with the University of Kentucky's College of Design to reform the urban plan for the city of Guthrie. In 2006, the city petitioned the University of Kentucky for help in developing a new plan for the future of the community. The College of Design accepted the project. The first project, known as the Guthrie Transportation Museum, became the hub project of the renewal effort. In December 2007, Matthew Colin Bailey, along with assistance from the College of Design, created schematic plans to revive the city. The city received multiple grants in amounts of over $1.4 million from the Commonwealth of Kentucky to begin the restoration of the downtown area and a branding campaign to improve the city's image. In 2009, the award-winning architecture firm of Deleon + Primmer was awarded the final design of the project.
