  • Meeting with our city’s numerous entrepreneurs and small-businesses to advocate for stronger economic development within our area while working to address equity and disparities.
  • Work to build community both within the district and within greater Louisville by arranging quarterly meetings with stakeholders to exchange ideas and coordinate efforts.
Lay the Foundation for a Sustainable Future2020-09-12T11:48:47-04:00
  • Strategize to improve roads and traffic within the district while recognizing how zoning needs to reflect our goals of community building. 
  • Build an interconnected view of infrastructure in our community that includes institutions and programming central to our city such as libraries, schools, and parks as well as social services and equitable development.
  • Set benchmarks for implementing sustainable innovation to counteract climate disruption and the resulting social/economic changes.
