Neighborhood and Long-Range Planning Program


The way each of us feels about the places where we live and work can affect our overall health and well-being. Safe, attractive and welcoming neighborhoods make life better for everyone living in them, and a network of great neighborhoods makes our entire city a better place to be.

Exceptional cities, and the great neighborhoods within them, don’t just happen. Cities constantly grow and change, and we can ensure that these changes are positive through the plans we make today. Louisville Metro already has an adopted comprehensive plan, Cornerstone 2020, which provides guidance for growth and development in the coming years.

Neighborhood plans are intended to offer this same kind of guidance on a more focused level by providing a means for neighborhoods to:

• identify, preserve and build on the positive qualities of their neighborhoods;

• acknowledge and deal with existing issues or problems; and

• set goals and priorities that will shape the future of their area in the years to come.
