Downtown Revitalization Team
The Downtown Revitalization Team is a group formed to determine new ways to bring people and businesses back downtown following declines in business heightened by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mayor Greg Fischer announced the creation of the Downtown Revitalization Team during his annual State of the City address, noting that downtown is the heart of Louisville, and a vibrant, healthy downtown is essential for any thriving city.
The team will focus on short-term projects that will help revitalize downtown. A draft action plan is expected by May, including actions that could be taken immediately, that will guide actions through 2021. Early items discussed included clean and green efforts, safety, public infrastructure improvements, and homeless resources.
The Downtown Revitalization Team is an open committee; it currently includes residents and representatives from the business community, tourism, government agencies and other organizations with downtown or near-downtown operations. Anyone can join by reaching out to Louisville Forward at (502) 574-4140.
The Downtown Revitalization Team Steering Committee meets every two weeks on Thursdays from 1-2:30 p.m.
The next meeting is March 18. The public may join the meeting via Zoom or phone.
