Louisville’s lack of attainable housing affects all walks of life, from seniors to new college grads, from teachers to firefighters, from service workers to essential workers. Without zoning changes, this issue will go unresolved.
Louisville has welcomed more than 40,000 people and added more than 80,000 private sector jobs over the last decade, a 16.2% increase. However, current land development codes do not support these increased numbers and have been minimally changed since 1931.
Looking to the future, fair and attainable housing is essential to attract business, support a thriving workforce, and boost the local economy.
