Land Development Code

The Land Development Code (LDC) is a regulatory document that has been created to implement the goals and objectives within the Cornerstone 2020 Comprehensive Plan. The Land Development Code, adopted in 2003 with major revisions in 2004 and 2006, contains several requirements related to zoning, form districts, land use, building & site design, transportation, landscaping and signage. 

1st through 4th class cities in Kentucky have their own zoning authority, meaning they can choose which versions or sections of the LDC to adopt. Louisville-Jefferson County has 12 such cities, including Louisville Metro. The LDC in effect for each jurisdiction can be found below with any revisions or amendments that have been made and that are in effect in that specific jurisdiction.
