Neighborhood Office Hours: Conversations with a Planner
Planning and Design Services will be available at Louisville Free Public Library branches beginning in June to answer questions about zoning (What is zoning? Why does it matter?) and discuss the ongoing LDC Reform project. We want to hear about your neighborhood and discuss what the reform means for you!

A collection of workshops and discussions have been designed to inform recommendations to amend the LDC. The activities and discussions of each workshop intend to provoke collaboration and encourage debate. Time will be made at the beginning of each workshop for new participants to learn about the LDC reform, meet staff, and ask questions. Many of the workshops are designed independent of each other; meaning that you do not need to attend them in any specific order and you do not need to attend one to understand another.
- Hands-on Workshop: Planning for Middle Housing (August/September)
"Middle housing includes a range of house-scale buildings with multiple units – compatible in scale and form with detached single-family homes – located in walkable neighborhoods."
At this workshop participants will form small groups and work together to build their own middle housing neighborhood using Lego bricks representing different types of housing, such as single-family detached, duplexes, or multiple unit buildings. The date, time, and location for each workshops is provided below:
