Changes to the Louisville Metro Land Development Code (LDC) are of great importance to all Louisville residents. Decisions made by the LDC Improvement Committee and subcommittees will impact the character of our community for years to come. The LDC's are therefore of great interest to CART as LDC's directly impact transportation needs, particularly the development path for transportation infrastructure. We believe that the future development path of transportation should be multi-modal, public transit centered with less emphasis on accommodating personal automobiles. Below the fold are the schedules for upcoming meetings of the LDC Improvement Committee and all the LDC Improvement subcommittees as posted at the time of this writing on Metro Louisville's Planning and Design website.
CART will monitor developments of Round Two of the process and provide input when possible. We believe it is important to follow all the subcommittees because all aspects of the LDC have implications for CART's mission of advocating for sustainable public transportation. You never know when a seemingly unrelated item will have significant transportation implications.
This is a big job and we welcome the assistance of any CART members and interested citizens. You can help by volunteering to attend any of the meetings below and report back. If you are interested please go to our contact page and send us an email with your availability and/or specific meetings you would like to attend. Put “LDC Volunteer” in the subject line. Thanks for your support now and in the future!
