Falling Run: NA's "waterfront revival" prospect?

Locals will recall Tom Galligan's plan for creating a Jeffersonville canal from scratch as a means of channeling storm water and jump-starting development. It didn't happen, of course. There already is an accessible waterway sans levee (the Ohio), and the Big Four Bridge has proven to be the requisite redevelopment magnet.

New Albany's best conceptual point of convergence in potential terms was considered earlier this year.
