After the Ohio River, Floyds Fork Creek could be considered as Louisville Metro’s greatest remaining environmental asset. The goal of the Floyds Fork Study is to be proactive and guide future growth and development in a manner that is positive and planned. Equally important, the study seeks to protect the unique landscape character and future
development of the Floyds Fork Greenway and the Louisville Loop. Other goals the study will address include:

  • Balance between land conservation, population growth, and development in order to maintain community and natural character.
  • Capitalize on integrating land use planning with other planning initiatives, including the Floyd’s Fork Greenway and connections with the 100-mile Louisville Loop, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet planning initiatives, and water and sewer infrastructure plans.
  • Promote and integrate economic, societal, and sustainable development best practices.
  • Educate the general public about pedestrian-oriented design, mixed-use development in centers, and practices of low impact/sustainable development
  • Recognize the goals, objectives, and plan elements established in Cornerstone 2020 that pertain to the Floyds Fork area, including the need to ensure appropriate placement, design and scale of non-residential and mixed-use development in designated activity centers.
