A Word From Our Mayor:
In my position as Mayor of the City of Corbin, I have tirelessly advocated for a Real ID Regional office to locate here. On August 11, a letter to KTC formally requested this. As most of you know, downtown Corbin is centrally located to Laurel, Whitley, and Knox County areas with a resident population of over 120,000 people. With the addition of neighboring counties Bell and McCreary, Corbin is easily accessible to over 160,000 people. A new regional office in Corbin would provide the residents of South-Central Kentucky with the best access to a new drivers license program. Corbin is conveniently situated on I-75 and offers the shortest proximal drive times compared to other cities in the area such as London, Williamsburg or Barbourville. Also, the City of Corbin has an ideal office space available to house a regional office right now. The building adjoins Corbin City Hall and Corbin Police Department. The space was formally used by the Whitley County District Court before its move to the newly constructed Judicial Center in Williamsburg. Although the district court has moved, the Corbin facility is currently being used by the Whitley County Court Clerk to issue drivers license. With plenty of room to grow, it is handicap accessible, completely outfitted with furniture and equipment, and has ample parking space. The transition would be seamless as people are very aware of this location that already services the Tri-County area. please help us get this new RealID location in Corbin! We’ll throw the splash pad and great downtown restaurants in for free 🙂
