Among the issues heard at the first public forum held last month were public transportation, quality of life and arts funding.</p><p>Many of those and other ideas being shared concentrate on economic development, and mayoral spokesman Phil Miller says Fischer believes any future for Louisville must include a look at the cost of and how to pay for large-scale development.</p><p>"Certainly the idea of a progressive Louisville where progressive projects are undertaking is tied very closely to the LIFT initiative. And I think that’s why he thinks it’s important for the future of the city,” he says. Mon, 08 Jul 2013 12:40:00 +0000 Phillip M.
