The Comprehensive Plan will guide the growth of the community for the next 20 years and serves as the basis for land use and transportation policies. This update will build upon the success of Cornerstone 2020, the current comprehensive plan, and will be informed by recent planning initiatives, including Vision Louisville, Move Louisville, Healthy Louisville 2020, and Sustain Louisville.
To date, the Comprehensive Plan team has held or been a part of over 100 meetings and events to gather input from the community. Examples of outreach include meetings with an Advisory Committee, work groups, suburban communities, neighborhood groups and business organizations.
