The effort to coordinate job creation and economic growth for Metro Louisville will be in the spotlight for Councilman Rick Blackwell’s next District 12 Dialogue on Tuesday, March 20th.
“Metro Louisville is slowly recovering from the recession and it is important to understand the role of economic development and job creation,” says Blackwell. “Many people may not realize what all is involved in growing the local economy.”
Pattie Claire, Assistant Director of Economic Development and Innovation for Metro Louisville will be on hand to give an overview of his department, its function, and the new added role of Innovation and what it means for residents of the city.
"Innovation is an interesting concept for Louisville," says Blackwell. "This is a fantastic opportunity for District 12 residents to learn more about what that means for them."
The March District 12 Dialogue is set for the Southwest Government Center, 7219 Dixie Highway beginning at 7:00pm.
Representatives from IPL, MSD, LMPD, and Congressman John Yarmuth's office will also be on hand to answer your questions.
