Advanced Planning

Advanced Planning studies our community's built environment, envisioning, designing and implementing long-range planning solutions to create a vibrant sense of place where people want to live, work and innovate.

The department has initiated several neighborhood planning projects and the city-wide initiative Vision Louisville, which are catalysts for economic opportunity, and will increase our residents' quality of life throughout our community.

Completed planning studies:

1)   Fourth Street Corridor
2)   Rubbertown Economic Development Strategy
3)   University Corridor Redevelopment Study
4)   West Market Street Corridor Improvement Study
5)   Park Hill Industrial Corridor
6)   Regional Farmers Market Feasibility Study
7)   Retail Market Plan
8)   Market Drill-Down Study
9)   West Louisville Competitive Assessment

West Louisville has been the recipient of many of these planning efforts. As the city's historic industrial jobs center, West Louisville offers great neighborhoods with parks, walkable neighborhoods, easy access to downtown and the interstate system, and is considered a great place to live and work.

In showcasing West Louisville from a first-person point of view - the residents and employees who live and work here - the city has developed materials to be distributed to potential employers, site selection consultants and economic developers.

Neighborhood plans are intended to offer guidance by providing a means for neighborhoods to identify, preserve and build on the positive qualities of their neighborhoods, and to set goals and priorities that will shape the future of their area in the years to come.

The Public Improvements Program implements design strategies, including new street furniture, sidewalks or street design, to revitalize commercial corridors. Neighbors and businesses take more pride in their own properties when surrounding areas are attractive and clean.
