City's Strategic Plan
"My dream for Louisville is to create a clean, green, safe and inclusive city where people love to live and work. This Six Year Strategic Plan is a roadmap for getting us there."
- Mayor Greg Fischer
We’re continuing to make progress!
As we enter the fourth year of our strategic plan, there is dramatic change happening throughout our city – in our built environment, in our economy, in the global brand we’re establishing for ourselves, and in the ways we live, work, learn and interact with each other. We are a city in transformation, and that is good, because we live in a world of transformation. Yet, as a city, our goal is to do more than keep up with the pace of global change; it's to leap ahead.
“Louisville Metro Government is the catalyst for creating a world-class city that provides all its citizens with safe and vibrant neighborhoods, great jobs, a strong system of education and innovation, and a high quality of life.”
“Louisville is a safe city of lifelong learning and great jobs, wellness, and compassion.”
Life-Long Learning, Compassion and Health

Mutual respect and trust are basic to establishing effective working relationships with our citizens and colleagues. We value equity, inclusion, open communication, and diverse opinions. Trust is created as we relate openly with one another in a spirit of fairness, honesty, respect, and compassion. Trust builds relationships, opportunities, and actions that make our community and the world a better place.
Teamwork and Partnerships
High performing teams are core to our success. Aligned teams leverage our combined talents, planning, and problem solving skills to accelerate learning and achieve a shared vision. The collective ability of our teams and partnerships allows us to proactively and reactively perform at a pace that significantly out- performs our competition.
