In 2017 the Finance Cabinet announced its plan to build a new office building and
parking structure to house 1,500 state jobs in the core of downtown Frankfort. The
City and County were asked by the State to develop a public input strategy and recommendation
for the Capital Plaza Area Redevelopment which includes approximately 6.4 acres of property
(Parcel B) adjacent to the new state facilities. In August 2017, the City and County
established the Capital Plaza Community Engagement committee made up of representatives
from the City, County, KCDC, Tourism, DFI and one citizen representative appointed
by the Mayor of Frankfort and Judge of Franklin County. This committee was established to
select a consultant to conduct a community engagement process for the redevelopment of
Parcel B and have been working with the consultant since January to develop a downtown master
plan. In May 2018 the City, County and State jointly entered into a Memorandum of
Agreement regarding the Capital Plaza Area Redevelopment. The MOA includes the requirement
of the City and County to establish a Development Advisory Committee (DAC) to assist
with the selection of a consultant for the redevelopment of Parcel B through an RFI and
ultimately an RFP process.
