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



In 2012 Louisville Metro Government, with input from citizens and community stakeholders, created a Six-Year Strategic Plan outlining the bold new vision for our city.  We have made significant progress on each of these goals, even completing some of them. The progress report below reflects our continued work, including the addition of new goals and amendments to existing goals. Both our advancements and adjustments have been made with eye towards continuous improvement. And as we continue our journey, we will strive to learn more about what works, what doesn’t work, and how we can best meet the challenges ahead.





2015 Mayor's Strategic Plan Retreat Photos

The Mayor’s 4th Annual Retreat was held August 20, 2015. He was joined by his leadership staff and over 40 Community Partners for a day of collaboration and networking in the UPS Great Room at the Gheens Foundation Lodge in Beckley Creek Park of the Parklands of Floyds Fork. This year’s theme was Metro Derby 2015: Getting to the finish line - Harnessing the Wisdom of the Crowd. Collectively, we took time to evaluate our progress, over the past 4 years, toward accomplishing the intended outcomes of the City’s 6-Year Strategic Plan. Additionally, we reviewed the impact of the Plan’s various goals and their initiatives on the community to date; while collaborating with our community partners to problem solve around some of the challenges we currently face. In doing so, we relied upon the collective wisdom and skillsets of our Community Partners. Below you will find pictures of the day’s activities – as you will see, the strategy teams worked hard and had fun too!
