Proposed Land Development Code Amendments

The Land Development Code (LDC), which provides zoning regulations, is regularly amended. A public hearing by the Louisville Metro Planning Commission is required prior to any such amendment. Citizens may provide their comments at the public hearing. After the Planning Commission reviews the amendment and provides a recommendation, Metro Council reviews the amendment and may approve an ordinance enacting it. For an amendment to be in effect in some suburban cities within Jefferson County that have exercised their right to zoning authority under state law, the City Councils and Commissions must approve local ordinances enacting the amendment.
