The Louisville Metro Economic Development Department is leading a major public-private initiative to revitalize business growth and investment in a 1,400-acre industrial area near Louisville's city center to stimulate job creation.
The Park Hill Industrial Corridor Implementation Strategy recommends focusing the combined business attraction and development efforts of Metro Government and Greater Louisville Inc. on a number of key industry “clusters” identified as having the most potential for growth in the area. The industry clusters include business services, distribution, construction, clean manufacturing and research, processed foods and craft manufacturing.
The Implementation Strategy also identifies and prioritizes near-term and long-term aesthetic improvements, transportation changes, land-use enhancements, and programs and policies needed to make the Park Hill corridor a magnet for businesses and new jobs.
A key focus will be recasting the corridor as a demonstration center for “green” practices, products and services. A number of projects, totaling more than $2.5 million, already are underway.
