SHORT STREET Short Street and Emory Street The Short Street-Emory Street area is bounded by Highway 278 to the north, Emory Street to the east, Clark Street to the south and Robinson Street to the west. These neighborhood areas are comprised of a mix of ranch homes, shotgun homes, duplexes and quadraplexes.
Several boarded and vacant homes line the Corley Street and Bohannon Street areas. There are two structures currently under condemnation in these neighborhoods and many others with overgrown vegetation and other minor code violations. High crime, illegal dumping and junk cars pose continuous problems for law enforcement and code enforcement. Much of these neighborhood areas are included within the Highway 278 LCI and their adjacency to Covington’s downtown make revitalization of the area important to any development within the vicinity.
